I don't think the IRFU care about Residency qualified players, as long as they are have completed their residency they are just the same as other players in their eyes. Though the numbers in Munsters squad would be concerning about their acamady.

I'm quite pleased with what I feel is a pretty logical team selection for tonight; resting a few guys up front for next week as well as McCloskey. Perhaps the only surprise for me is that we're playing our 3rd choice full-back. Still, I suppose games like this give him the opportunity to earn himself a place in the team. If anyone sees him make a tackle with his shoulder, let me know.

Lowry stripping on the ground perhaps lost us the game only minutes after we thought he’d won it for us. Rolling Eyes

Think OConnors argument to the ref was that the TMO was looking for where the ball first touched green, but that the point where downward pressure was applied, it was on the dead ball line.

Bit of a stretch, but I did think on first look it was touching the dead ball line when grounded.

Fair play to Connacht. Exciting game. Plenty of mistakes though from both sides.

From Ulster point of views, fantastic to see Addison’s running attacking threat back.

Ulster certainly coughed up 2/3 clear opportunity with dropped balls or not giving the pass/inaccurate pass.

Rory Best is off to coach in USA alongside Allen Clark in Seattle, that's a bit of a shame that they aren't having hims do more here

The academy is doing fine now. Dont get me wrong there's always room for improvement but there's been 14 promotions to the senior squad between this season and next. It remains to be seen whether that was just a bit of luck or not. Theres hardly any players coming through from limerick these days which is a massive failure.


Re the squad, DDA, Snyman and Jenkins are all signed with private money. The irfu turned down the signing of PS du Toit. In general van Graan tends to sign as many players as he can. It results in a bloated squad imo.

(15-9) Jacob Stockdale, Robert Baloucoune, James Hume, Stuart McCloskey, Ethan McIlroy, Billy Burns, John Cooney;
(1-8) Eric O’Sullivan, Rob Herring, Marty Moore, Alan O’Connor, Iain Henderson (Capt.), Matty Rea, Jordi Murphy, Nick Timoney.
Replacements: John Andrew, Andrew Warwick, Tom O’Toole, Kieran Treadwell, Sean Reidy, Alby Mathewson, Michael Lowry, Will Addison.
Almost as good a team as we've got and Reidy and O'Toole could be useful coming off the bench. I hope Stockdale proves me wrong but I've got absolutely no confidence in his defence.

Really quite disappointing from Ulster the past few weeks. Yea, we can’t complain to not win them all. We aren’t the finished product, we all knew that. It’s more the nature of the defeats that’s concerning. Really taken the shine off the season which for the most part probably was categorised as hopeful and promising. Unfortunately I feel the season will now be tainted with some concern. Yes, some individual glimpses of talent from young ones, but ultimately it all has to fit together as a team performance and a well executed game plan.

Ulster were in possession inside the Munster 22 from minute 63 to 72 and claimed no points in that time. That is very sobering.
