Edinburgh Rugby v Ulster Rugby

Post by neilthom7 on Tue 01 Nov 2016, 1:30 pm

First topic message reminder :

Edinburgh Rugby v Ulster Rugby
Guiness Pro 12 Round 8
Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh
Friday 4th November 2016, 19:35 Kick-off
Live on BBCS Alba and BBC NI

Teams
Edinburgh Rugby
(15-9): Blair Kinghorn, Damien Hoyland, Chris Dean, Phil Burleigh, Tom Brown, Jason Tovey, Sean Kennedy
(1-8): Jack Cosgrove, Neil Cochrane CAPTAIN, Murray McCallum, Fraser McKenzie, Ben Toolis, Viliame Mata, Jamie Ritchie, Magnus Bradbury
Replacements (16-23): Stuart McInally, Kyle Whyte, Felipe Arregui, Lewis Carmichael, Cornell Du Preez, Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, Duncan Weir, Michael Allen

Ulster Rugby
(15-9): C Piutau; T Bowe, L Marshall, S Windsor, R Lyttle, B Herron, R Pienaar;
(1-8): K McCall, R Herring (capt), W Herbst, D Tuohy, F van der Merwe, P Browne, C Ross, S Reidy;
Replacements (16-23): J Andrew, R Kane, A Warwick, R Diack, C Joyce, P Marshall, A Cairns, J Stockdale

Referee: Andrew Brace (IRFU)
Assistant Referees: Dudley Phillips (IRFU), Lloyd Linton (SRU)
Citing Commissioner: John Kirk (SRU)
TMO: Gareth Simmonds (WRU)

So Edinburgh take on Ulster this weekend in round 8.
Edinburgh come off a bad result losing to Zebre last week while Ulster also come off a loss to Munster last week.
The internationals coming up mean that squads for this could be interesting.  Ulster will lose 4 players to the Ireland squad this weekend as well as their lengthy injury list.

Has Cairns been playing 10 for the Ravens A team?

Apparently Cairns is a 9 converted to wing.

Diack must be miffed that Browne starts ahead of him at 6. I'm looking forward to seeing how Browne plays at 6. Can't be any worse than Diack, and might actually play much better.

Not often I can say this, but our pack looks stronger than Edinburghs Smile They will probably conspire to be bullied off the park though mad

And that is a real worry for us given the talents in your backline - Piatau will run riot on the wide Murrayfield pitch, especially if he runs at Hoyland (who can't tackle)!

Not sure how much talent is in our backline. Bowe looks done, Windsor has never impressed and Herron might just pass as solid. P Marshall also passes as solid, but a different kind of solid.

On paper we look stronger, but in reality we play like headless chickens on Prozac.

Hoping more for this

If only ... The video clip following the one you posted shows the passion and the raw aggression in the man, and he was just commentating! That's the sort of nasty this side is missing but, coupled with the physical freak that Ferris was, Ferris was a genuine world class nightmare for the opposition.

He's more aggression with one good knee than our whole pack now! God, I'd give anything to get a fit Stephen Ferris circa 2009 back in an Ulster shirt. Can't imagine the difference that would make.

Right so it's decided then we are all ok with QUB bioengineering stuff as long as they make us a knee/ankle or whatever the problem is for stephen ferris first?

Rubbing my eyes furiously. Changed my specs three times and gave them an extra polish. Banged on the telly, fiddled with the rabbits ears.

But no the screen still says Edinburgh 15-0 Ulster after 18 minutes.

Les Kiss is not having a good time of late.

You know how Neil Doak has been Skills Coach since McLaughlins time at least. Well why is it teams like Edinburgh and Glasgow can offload the ball smoothly under pressure but every time we throw an offload there's a 50/50 chance of a turnover.

Idle thoughts.
