He had a man inside to pass to, or a defender who wasn't wide enough that he could have taken on the outside .... and offloaded if necessary

So what does he do? He tries to step the defender on the inside ?!?!

He's a lucky boy he scored, but Lancaster is still going to tear strips off him at the video review

Jordan needs to get this need to step out of his mind .... it's like a nervous tick at this stage
He’s infuriating to watch. The one time he runs straight against Sarries he scores a try

He looked offside but I do think the scrumhalf is picking the ball up stepping.

Hmmm, I wonder if we'll go to the corner, that's a 20m maul.

Only Lyttle had the gumption to join that maul, both centres should have haired in when it got that bit of momentum.

Who is coaching the Leinster wingers to run up to defenders, stop, do a step, and take contact

Bad call from the ref but thankfully he's acknowledged the mistake and changed his decision.

There’s no way Porter was supporting his own body weight there. This new law is shite.

Carter ffs, just straight off his feet when we've got quick ball from a good carry from Rea making us 5m and now a retreating defence.

Meanwhile Healy still thinks he's 23 rather than 33 and can still break up the blindside.

Plays 7 in the AIL, 8 for u20s but 6 for Ulster 'A'. He's a 6 IMO.

At the risk of bagging the lad unfairly, you'd have to question Larmours positioning for that try

He seemed to get himself involved unnecessarily in a mid field ruck ..... leaving his wing to be covered by JGP with JVDF sprinting across

Nah the back bounced off him.

Is it my imagination or has Deegan bulked up a lot?

Damage was done when Roberts pinched through the middle and got the offload away. Sucked in defenders and the lone was scrambling to reset after that.

Deegan looks like he's done his ACL. FFS.
He looks bigger, LM, agreed.

Ulster getting caught of-side because the Benetton scrum-half is taking a two part effort to get the ball away.
We need to make sure the ball is actually out.
