Flametop wrote: Sun Nov 22, 2020 3:01 pm What puzzled me about Farrell was how relaxed he was in the interview after the match. He looked under no pressure at all. Usually coaches are a little defensive, talk about a few contentious moments, complain about lack of aggression from his players, lack of belief. He had no belief that we could win that match.

He was almost like a Dad on the sideline wii had just watched his son play. Oh wait..
Presumably he’s been told “Your job is safe, nobody gives a shit about these games. Just be ready for the 6N.”
Yeah I wouldn't read too much into it.
Has to be said, if that is the case, it’s disappointing that all he’s tried in these games is 2 boshers in the centers, and POM at 7.

He tried Ross Byrne as fullback yesterday

Sounds like Aaron Sexton might be getting his first Ulster cap tonight from the bench.

What's the point in having Shane Daly carry tackle bags for weeks without any game time? Surely he should be released for the odd game. Has he even played this season?

6ft4 and can run 100m in 10.4 seconds, lets hope he is good at rugby as well. Could be our Jonny May :proud:

I know who he is. I was following his 200m career and hoping he’d choose rugby.

Anyone watching Connacht? My stream is useless.
Looks like they are down to 14 with a red card, but leading Zebre 33 to 12

Not, really I'm usually pretty accurate, only got it wrong (very wrong) once. That was on a lock called Dalton.

Plus, I never predicted anything for Sexton.

As I said during the match, I'd expect to see him start against Georgia.

It was stupid from him tbh. He led with the head and caught the opposition player. Some fellow Whesties felt it was harsh but his tackling technique is years behind. He's probably the best ball carrying forward we have but he still hasn't copped on with his tackling..

Looks like Big Papa gone for 6 weeks for a nothing tackle. 3 weeks before, now doubled if the red is upheld.

On a positive note, great to see SOB 2.0 back
