Re: Embra v Ulster

Edinburgh choked again. Played high tempo Leinster style for first 20 minutes. Slogged it out a la Munster for 40 minutes. Folded and played like Southern Kings for the last 20. Cockerell has to take responsibility for them not pacing the match and stop blaming his squad for not knowing how to win. ...
