Some lovely work by Munster didn't come to fruition, lines of running were a lot better than I've seen in a long time, telling that the lads that have been with Larkham looked a lot more comfortable taking things on, while the internationals that were integrated looked static at times.

Jack McGrath doing his best Itoje during the match was funny.

I just don't see anything at all in him, he's not fast, not elusive, not strong, passing game isn't anything special, weak defender.


Touch of the Chainsaw Laney alright. Definitely better going forward.

He's not even very good going forward! Christ you could probably count the defenders he's beaten on one hand.


Was thinking to put 'relatively' in but why bother. He's still there.

Someone else needs picked.

This. Was hoping KOB would get on earlier, night and day ball in hand.

Faddes is pure mince.

We matched them up front but they had an in form Conway in their back three while Ulster had Faddes, who is an empty shirt, and Stockdale who is terribly out of form.

I said before the season that the Leinster squad excluding those in Japan would get out of Pro 14 group. I stand by that.

Are you saying that Leinster, if they didn't play any of their internationals, would make the playoffs?

FFS that's hardly much of a a prediction gloiney. :lol:

Leinster will stroll to the playoffs again. They are head and shoulders above any other team in this league.

Poor game, so many mistakes. Kelleher already looks far better than Herring and Scannell.

Was worse than Porter last night, but that was McGrath's best game in an Ulster jersey so far. I thought he had a decent enough game.

Both Ulster props* were very good. John Ryan has gone back massively.

You'd just wonder what some of these chaps are thinking. Do they pay the slightest bit of attention to current trends in the sport?

Marty did well considering it was his first game of the season. He really needs to be playing week in and week out to get up to speed fitness wise. He was one of our best players last season. The scrum he got smashed in during the first half, I would have called Reidy a few names after it, he hardly give him anything in that scrum.

Yup, Larkham making an impression, fantastic try by Conway, our scrum looks shite, bloodyhell did his best to loose it in end, missed penalty and only for great tackle from Scannell Would a been a fcukin brainless intercept try...didn't think he,d make the kick on 80 mins to get ball off pitch

With Hanrahan looking likely to miss out for the next while, Schmidt and co's negligence with Carberry's ankle is really f**king Munster. Bleyendaal has been poor and is unsuited for the gameplan. After him, Ben Healy is next off the ranks.

I never thought I'd say it but Burns is being missed. He's bang average but the other options are so underwhelming.

We had enough possession and territory but were woeful with the ball.

Good to see scannell with a performance like that the week DDA rumour breaks. Rowntree has a bit to do. Very obvious the improvement under larkham. It’ll take plenty of disjointed performances to get there

Oh he is for sure, both of them would do a lot for this team. I will say I think Curtis had a quite heavily prescribed gameplay for today to just shift it on and Johnston as well to a certain extent. Question is how much more can either bring when the training wheels are taken off.

I actually thought the backline moved alright tonight, 10/12/13 anyway, but Munster were better in that department. I am a forward though so I may be talking bollix

Tyler looks well off. Is Healy in the euro squad. Probably scannell coveting 10 next week.

Judging by their horror show today we should be well able to get a result in Swansea even with Tyler at 10, he was fairly sjot today though. Racing are really struggling as well, fingers crossed we can navigate these two games before the back to back.

Team was going very well til JJ went off, liking the new ambition. This time last year we'd have tried to bash ball our way over instead of swinging it wide for the Scannell try. Instead, a few heavy carries to narrow their pack and then flood the open side. Nice play and hopefully we can get the Joebots back thinking on their feet.

Mention that Racing are struggling made me look at the table

1. How is that possible with a world class player like Zeebs in the team. I heard he's available for an Ireland callup
2. Lyon are joint top with a 9 point buffer to 3rd and also a game in hand on basically everyone. Great

Quick glance there and I reckon Leinster Dec 2017. Drew with Ulster in April 2018. You also destroyed Irish rugby in a meaningless win over Leinster in Dec 2018 and I have heard you all remain fairly happy about that

Nearly two years unbeaten. Not bad.

That's why we're Ireland 1 I suppose.

LI are second bottom, but the league hasn't been going long enough to settle at all, teams have only played 3 or 4 games. Bath have P4W2L2 and are 8th, Sale have an identical record and are 3rd. The Top14 have played 8 or 9 games already. I doubt either lose as many players as the Pro14 to the RWC also.

Didn't Quins get their break during the 2011 RWC? Got near the top of the pile and managed to make it count.

I never associated the 2 before now, but Connacht won the Pro14 in 2016, after rwc2015.

Yeah not LI it’s Saints I was thinking. Certainly not long enough to settle but will make it somewhat tighter for top 4 later in the season when Bath, Leicester, Wapss etc will probably be playing catch up. Not forgetting the WC guys are still weeks away from coming back in
