I wouldn't call that a nothing match. If it was McFadden wouldn't have headbutted Reidy!

We talk about some of the young players that have come through this season for Ulster, but without question our most improved player by a mile is Dave Shanahan. I used to cringe at the sight of him coming on, now he clearly adds real value to the side when he plays.

Ulster Team Talk Thread IV: How in gods name have we gotten this far into McFarland's tenure without highlighting the fact that the word 'Farl' is in his name.

I can only assume Clancy didn't get a good view of it on the screen,

This is where you need the TMO to make the call,
"There is a clear headbutt, for me that is a red card"
a lot of the TMOs seem to be reluctant to make decisions.

Do we need a TV at the side of the field VAR style?

The thing is the touch judge saw it. He called it to Clancy's attention. That's why Clancy went to the TMO in the first place. Surely if the touch judge is insistent that it was a headbutt he should take his word allied to the video evidence?

The touch judge tells Clancy that the blue player led with his head. Of course Wiggam hasn't the gumption to listen to his touch judge and goes to a camera angle that may as well been filmed from Craigavon.

If we’re talking refs then it must be said that Joy Neville as AR was brilliant in the very same game. Clear, consistent and knowledgeable. It’s a disgrace that a well established bottler like Clancy keeps getting matches over someone like her.

According to the Other Forum, Dalton is away to Oz to play rugby, organised by the IRFU.

Apparently McFarland rates him, so delighted if this is the case.

Also, this is what I miss from playing...

Dalton sounds like he needs to get out of his comfort zone, so a few months in Oz could be great for him.

Sounds as though Nagle is away, which is a shame, but realistically if we have Carter next season, plus Treadwell and O'Connor, and obviously Hendy, and remembering that Rea Snr can play second row, it's hard to justify a contract, especially if Dalton kicks on.

Are you saying we should rename McFarland Soda?
