Max O'Reilly is a very slippery player. Seems to be able to get out of tough scenarios.

Ulster hoisted by there own petard there. All rushing up looking for the intercept and we just straighten it up. Good stuff

Best player on pitch is a Leinster boy


...... unfortunately its Izuchukwu
He's been superb. Whenever I see an explosive athlete at the lower levels I look to see if they're involving themselves in the game or just being chucked the ball the whole time. He's been reading things brilliantly and looked explosive as well as skillful. McCann excellent for them as well.

We just have no platform. Lineout terrible again, I wonder if the prop change had an impact on the lifters because there have been a couple of slow ones.

When we've gone wide with quick hands we've actually been very good, but then it breaks down when we try to work close in and the handling has been terrinle. Foley has really struggled unfortunately. Also a bit worried that Soroka looked wrecked within the first ten minutes and had his hands on his hips at times, think I've noticed that before too and hope he's not trying to put on too much weight at the expense of mobility.
I'm a big fan of McCann.
Never argue with an idiot. Someone looking on may not be able tell the difference

In fairness, the only areas where Ulster are dominating us are in the front five, back row, half backs, three quarters and full back

Patterson reminds me a bit of JGP when he arrived. Nice break, quick pass but no kicking game and very loose.

To my untrained eye though he (and maybe Osborne) has looked the best of our four young 9s when I've seen him, admittedly not a huge amount.
