Lot of knee/foot injuries in there. Bad pitch? Bad luck?

Dunno. Signed to the end of next season. 32 years old at the minute.

Still considerably better than any of the other options.

I'd say Pienaar's going to be with us until he retires, or at least I hope so as otherwise we're boned.

Nice weather forecast for the game today :thumbup:

Hopefully Ulster can continue to throw it about and play an expansive game. It has worked well and was born out of necessity due to feebleness of the pack. Reidy has been able to slip in very effectively in this regard as he isn't the biggest but is mobile and a good carrier in the loose.

Munster will need to win.

We might get a few tries, but Ospreys will get 4 easily.

This looks like a basketball match - whoever has the ball looks like scoring.

Evans talking like it's only recently Jackson has become our key halfback, rather than approaching 2 full seasons.

Nice try from Best, little step and he's through
