Ulster v Connacht thread

    This kit choice by Connacht is absolutely stupid. How was this allowed?

    Ye, it's ridiculous. I think there was a similar issue in the Heineken Cup last year with Connacht v Leinster. They were playing in a dark green top and Leinster has their "European" kit which was a very dark blue/navy.

    Both competition organisers and "clubs" should be doing better.

    Also, lovely positive start from Stockdale. Great to see.

    connacht defence is very good.

    Good try that.

    Maybe Connacht could have been more aware to the fact that McCloskey loves that sort of offload. But that might be a bit unfair on his great piece is skill.

    Like McCloskey of old.

    Stockdale is running some very nice support lines, but his handling has been pretty poor so far.

    Very error-strewn and directionless from Connacht. Sad to see the persistence of our front row issues. Ulster could be further ahead.

    That’s terrible from TOH. Have to get ball off field after that turnover.

    He’s a Connacht legend and always will be but he has no business being first choice these days. Hard to understand what coaching staff are at

    Very difficult position to be put in. Every other team exits via box kick for good reason.

    Looked like marcus rea fought to get back behind the try line there so he wouldn't be held up. Pretty smart.

    Biggest issue with that kit is that it was ever designed. It's absolutely vile.
