Ulster and Munster lads don't get squad rotation shocker.

I suppose when you need all your internationals to beat the Dragons in the Pro14 it must seem strange to watch Leinster.

I’ve a bad feeling tonight is going to be like that home game against Toulon 3 or 4 years ago, when we had been playing meh up until that point in the season but the general sentiment was that we’d pull it out of the bag like we always do with the French in Belfast.
Then we got f**ked up by Bastareaud and co.

Ulster rugby have been clever to stick to the Friday night slot. Great offering for Belfast. I remember the good old days of Friday night rugby in Donnybrook, it has been all shite since that ended.

Looking forward to seeing JJ go this weekend for Munster.
Daly - Farrell is an exciting centre pairing. Would've liked to have seen Boyle play again for Connacht, thought he was great for them against Montpellier.
Still interested to hear how Marshall goes for Ulster tonight.

Used to love those Friday evenings back in the day. Few pre-match pints in Kielys and my pals and I would retire to the dearly missed 108 in Rathgar after the game.

Life is so shit now.
