I was hoping he'd twinkle toe his way through shocked Munster defenders like his wonder try in the 2012 HECv2 quarter final. It'll just have to be Nelson then Smile

This is sest to be one hell of a game with both sides being able to boast being in form and having good momentum. These interpros are getting better every year, full strength sides and all that.
It'll be interesting to see if the rumour on t'other forum is of substance with a half-time announcement of a big signing. They are listing all Saffer backrowers like crazy over there. It could just be a new tea lady Smile

Nelson will do a fine job, Pete, but he's no twinkle toe's. Not that he has no more to give though. I'm sure he has.
Forgot about this half-time announcement rumour. Hopefully it's more than a rumour, and hopefully it's bigger news than the tea lady. Although a top quality Tea lady is a must have for any team challenging to be the best in Europe.

If she's South African the signing fee will be astronomical. Maybe even more than Piutau, who according to latest reports* will be earning £1.3m per season Shocked

Time for Mr. Foley to deliver. There is a reason why the most successful coaches in Munster have not been from the second city...maybe Axel will be the exception

It would be funny Very Happy It would also be an incredible achievement after the run of injuries we have had all season, as well as losing Humphs and Anscombe.

The irony if we actually win it having missed out on silverware when we did have Humphs and Anscombe Very Happy

Nice piece in the IT about Paddy Jackson.

Can't get the link to work.

Of course, if Ulster lose this game we can probably kiss goodbye to a home semi-final. It's so finely poised.

Earls run over by Henderson without really even slowing him. His defence just isn't good enough to start for Ireland for me.

To be honest, big ball carriers have ran over Earls quite a bit since his return. It is definitely a weakness.

Agreed. I've had this sort of discussion at length with Munster supporters here, and they definately don't agree. Glad to know I'm not on my own!

I know Rory, I shouldn't even look at the tom-kite he comes out with.

Henderson has been everywhere so far, he just makes it all look very easy.
Crakin' first half, most of which I've held my breath. Time to breath and get another beer on the go.

I don't think Nigel Owens is Irish though.

So one conspiracy cancels out the other.

Ulster up at half-time - that's the main thing.

Can we be 100% honest here. Is there any team that gets worse card decision made against them than Ulster?

I expect this from poor referees, but this is just disappointing from Nigel

Rubbish call there, Hendo led with the arm and it's something that happens all the time at ruck time. That'll end the gamefor us because of yet another officiating F-up.

We know it is something that is being checked by the officials, we know it needs stamped out, and it is dangerous. It was silly and reckless by Henderson and although it happens in every single game, it is still against the laws of the game. My only wish is that it will be officiated consistently.

I think a red is very harsh, but even if he got a yellow we would have been 1 man down until the end.

He didn't force anyone in to a decision, he went into a ruck like everyone does in every game. Nobody thought anything was wrong with it, not the fans, not the players, not the referee, until the touch judge brought it up a minute later

It wasn't intentional at all, and he was trying to clear out the ruck like every other player does in every single game, but after seeing that close-up it was still a flying headbutt into the face.

Like I said, if we are going to start seeing red/yellow cards for the flying ruck clear-outs, I really flipping hope they are consistent. Especially for the World Cup.

Pity for Henderson not a deserved red yellow maybe. I guess he was pretty anonymous in the second half so wanted to get noticed given POMs display. Class is permanent...and lasts 80 mins

I barely noticed O'Mahony was playing, and I am a huge fan. He has been lazy since the 6 Nations.

Can somebody tell me if I'm wrong... but surely if a team has advantage and plays the ball across the backline, but ultimately doesn't progress towards the opposition tryline, surely advantage should not be over?

Tuohy clearly made that kick believing we still were playing advantage.

Owens did the same thing a few times today.

Am I wrong?

Yes you are. Scrum advantage ends after something like 2 clean passes by the attacking team. Tuohy lost his damn mind when he kicked that ball away.

Just because everyone does it does not make it right, he went in completely unattached and basically off his feet and Owens was right. My point is he didn't need to go in the ball was already coming back.

Ah! Interesting! And was that instance a scrum penalty? I dont remember.

Certainly brain farts like that from Tuohy and Bowe earlier need to be cut out if we are to progress through to the final!

Tuohy clearly made that kick believing we still were playing advantage.

Owens did the same thing a few times today.

Am I wrong?

Yes you are. Scrum advantage ends after something like 2 clean passes by the attacking team. Tuohy lost his damn mind when he kicked that ball away.

Ah! Interesting! And was that instance a scrum penalty? I dont remember.

Certainly brain farts like that from Tuohy and Bowe earlier need to be cut out if we are to progress through to the final!

It was a scrum advantage, not a penalty, probably from a knock on but I can't remember.

Somebody clarify the rule for me then. What are the technically details for a correct way to contest a ruck / clear out.

Not talking about rolling' players. I mean head on. Do hands have to make contact first? Sure if you have an outstretched arm going in with force, your arm will fold up and your shoulder/head will most likely make contact with the player soon after.

Should we just ban approaching a ruck with pace altogether??

Also... those saying it was an intentional headbutt are having a laugh. Murray was rolling back as Henderson was flying in. Whatever Hendo's target was, had moved to an extent. He did lead with a forearm. Think the head was accidental. But is forearm illegal too? Or only if it makes contact with the face?

Henderson went off his feet flying leading with his forearm but did accidentally hit Murray with the head, clear yellow and given Ulster's form this season the red was justified for reckless and dangerous play, shame it was Henderson who paid the price and not Williams though.

Who said it was intentional?

So you are allowed to make contact with the head if you stay on your feet? Genuinely not being pedantic, but I think this lack of exact clarity is why cardable offences keep happening.
