    Huge game for both teams. For Ulster it's a matter of staying ahead of Leinster while for Connacht it's a matter of making up ground on Munster. Both teams know the final will be be made up of the winners of Conference A and Conference B so there are no prizes for second.

    Ah stop you’re upsetting me. Must win game tonight, big improvements in the lineout, maul defence, and edge defence needed.

    I honestly think Connacht could get a 10-15 point win here. Ulster are missing for too many frontliners and while I know it isn't quite a full strengrh Connacht team it still looks very strong to me. Connacht have a definite edge in the pack.

    That said, if Ulster's backs get a bit of ball, they will cause Connacht problems, but backs don't win matches!

    Let’s go enjoy this game of rugby, fellow Connacht fans!

    I want whatever you're dosin yourself with :D

    I think this will be way closer than that. That's a very exciting Ulster backline.

    Ulster dreaming of a team of Chris Farrell and Ethan McElroy.

    Very Good from Ulster so far.

    One thing is clear early here.

    This ref isn’t up to the job.

    Feels like Connacht shouting ourselves in the foot so far, but maybe that’s my bias showing. Ulster haven’t really had to do much.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,442 its_phil


    Lovely hands all across the line there


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,160 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    Bealham went for the posts. Can't do that anymore more. That's dumb


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,304 ✭✭✭ macslash


    Did he forget to stop the clock there?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,295 ✭✭✭ launish116


    Great play there by Connacht, shocking defence by Gilroy?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,062 ✭✭✭ lawrencesummers


    Needs to come over the belhams side for the scrum

    Connacht deserved a score there


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,062 ✭✭✭ lawrencesummers


    Jordi sees the problem and is switching side

    YC PT coming up.

    It was McCall that missed the tackle on Healy if that’s what you mean.

    YC but not PT yet.
    Not worthy of a PT yet.

    McCall is mince


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,303 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    One of the earlier ones was absolutely worthy of a PT though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 37,978 irishbucsfan


    Look at the difference between Jordi Murphy's incredible hair and whatever that is surrounding Kyle McCall's face. This is the sort of thing that needs to change up north if they're ever going to start producing international forwards again

    If they kept the ball at they base it would have been.
