    That conversion did not look like it went through the posts to me but the score on the TV screen says 7-7, was it given?

    AR flags went up

    Wouldn't mind seeing how Toulouse got that ball back...



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,999 ✭✭✭✭Interested Observer


    1. There's no knee on the floor there

    2. I think Barnes shouted at Henderson in French


    Fairly annoyed at that one now I must say. Justice anyway.

    Knee never touched the ground there.

    Henderson can feel hard done by.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,888 ✭✭✭TRC10


    Baloucoune has been incredible in attack and defense



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,951 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    In no way was that a legal counter ruck. players sealing off immediately.



  • Administrators Posts: 53,335 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭awec


    Yea they’re doing it every time. Just diving over it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,999 ✭✭✭✭Interested Observer


    Ulster getting whistled off the park after the red.


    That's another really infuriating one because Toulouse have done it plenty of times including that counter ruck a few mins back.

    Jeez, that was a harsh call imo.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,951 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Ulster aren't tying in Toulouse's defense at all.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,888 ✭✭✭TRC10


    You see players off their feet like that on every single ruck.

    Barnes is so whistle-happy. Very frustrating



  • Administrators Posts: 53,335 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭awec


    lol that was surely a penalty for playing the 9. Cooney taken out when going for the ball.



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,999 ✭✭✭✭Interested Observer


    Laws of this game at the rucks are: if you're in red then just do whatever the **** you like.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,951 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Come on, ffs



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,329 ✭✭✭Dave_The_Sheep


    Ulster would drive you nuts sometimes.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,888 ✭✭✭TRC10


    Ulster have a real chance here but they can't keep throwing away chances like this.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,143 ✭✭✭munsterlegend


    What was Cooney doing going down the short side with pen advantage and an extra man? Brainless.



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,373 ✭✭✭✭AdamD


    Cooney going to Balacoune for a 1v3 on penalty advantage on the 5m line is absolutely atrocious rugby that will be overlooked because they had advantage

    Ulster could be handling this better but surely Toulouse won't be able to sustain this pace. Has England V Ireland written all over it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,951 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Two Toulouse players right off their feet there, come on Barnes.



  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Ulster are making it so hard for themselves.


    Barnes warned Arnold 4 times there or was a ruck not a maul, even went in to say it to him directly. At what stage does he stop coaching and start refereeing there? Massive bug. Ear of mine when referees do that.



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,920 ✭✭✭✭stephen_n


    Jesus the weight difference between the packs is insane. 120kg is an unbelievable difference.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,438 ✭✭✭kuang1


    Toulouse will take more time to recover from today than ulster no doubt. So that's an advantage to Ulster next week.


    I wonder will half time help to reset Barnes for the second half.

    Think he's a great ref but definitely guilty of red card guilt for the last 30 minutes.



  • Registered Users Posts: 9,951 ✭✭✭AbusesToilets


    Tlse TH right to his knees at that scrum. Long day if Ulster don't sharpen up



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,888 ✭✭✭TRC10


    Yeah the red card has almost spooked Ulster.

    Very similar to France v Ireland in the 6N. Ulster getting f*cked up at the breakdown and the scrum by a much bigger pack.

    Does anyone else think Henderson has been really poor this season?

    Ulster losing this by no more than 2 scores would be a good outcome, keeps them in contention for next week at least.
