Where is the fecken match thread? Ulster v Leinster match thread

    If Leinster lose, Ulster will have been more up for it, home advantage and probably the ref.

    If Ulster lose, well sure we'll have the Ulster team thread next week for those thoughts.

    Suspect on account of getting the excuses in early that Ulster will come out on top, have looked very impressive so far this season and a good bit ahead of Leinster in terms of match fitness, cohesion and application of game plan.

    Leinster by a gazillion.

    Old sexy to run down and snare young sexy in the dying moments.

    Ulster fans to blame ref.

    Definitely think Ulster have looked better in the backs than Leinster this season so far. Weather is due to be quite wet from what I hear, which, in theory, would scupper some of the back line moves that Ulster could be planning to run. I think the packs are closer than most seem to think, with the only very obvious advantages on paper being Leinster's back row vs Ulster's and I think Leinster's bench is a lot stronger. I'd expect this will be pretty close, but I think Ulster will win by less than a score.

    It's miserable up here, which definitely suits Leinster more.

    I think we'll lose this one, give how heavy Leinster have gone. We often have to do without Hendo, and Marshall is playing very well in Hume's absence. But the bench is the issue for Ulster. No Doak, no Izzy, no Stewart, no McIlroy, no S. Moore.

    Is it my imagination or have there been a good few cards in the last few interpros (not just Ulster-Leinster). Odds on a red or a very contentious yellow during this game?

    Similar or possibly worse weather in last years fixture didn’t seem to hamper Ulster too much. It was more Leinster who failed to deal with the conditions.

    Brightened up now and supposed to be dry for the match. Ball will be slippy though

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Kelleher has pulled out of the squad and is replaced by John McKee. Pretty sizeable blow for Leinster. The latter is a decent prospect, but Kelleher is a test quality hooker. Leinster and Irelands best when fully fit.

  • Interesting debate for me between Kelleher and Sheehan if both are at their best.

    Big night now for McKee, especially being from Belfast.

    Winning a scrum against the head.

    Love seeing it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Lovely offload from Ringrose to create that try.

    Great power and pace from Baird to score.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,904 ✭✭✭✭Exclamation Marc

    Beautiful hands there across the line

    Ross Byrnes passing has been much much better so far this season.

  • Registered Users Posts: 196 ✭✭bingobango12

    Great hands from Ringrose for that try

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    How on earth has Conan obstructed anyone there?

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,988 ✭✭✭✭Strumms

    Blatant offsides being ignored and then that penalty…ffs

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,189 ✭✭✭✭Crash

    Have they no transition graphics for replays? Bizarre.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    That's an excellent, excellent maul.

    Leinster look very powerful in the right exchanges.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,742 ✭✭✭OldRio

    The director and camera work of the coverage is very poor.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Error from Byrne there, but it's off the back off an awful pass from McGrath. He's thrown a few high, loopy ones already tonight.

    The RTE commentators are some pain in the hole.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    The wide angle camera really doesn't capture how bad the rain is. The close ups show how awful conditions are.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,904 ✭✭✭✭Exclamation Marc

    It's on BBC2 as well but they just lost their comms!

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Has the commentary for this game gone out? Only hearing the crowd on RTE and Premier Sport coverage.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,904 ✭✭✭✭Exclamation Marc

    Gone across the board if seems.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,039 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers

    No harm

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,707 ✭✭✭degsie

    Shyte conditions

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,597 ✭✭✭✭Venjur

    Turnover Ulster 6 looked good to me, maybe not on the ball long enough but losing balance was from the clear out.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,732 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Leinsters set piece has been dominant this evening. It's always great to have, but when conditions are as bad as they are, it's worth even more.

    McGrath is having a other poor game. Slow, loopy passes and now a run into no man's land followed by a hospital pass.
