Lowry try. Anyone see it? Holy cow!
I tell ya, Stockdale, Baloucoune, Lowry, Hume, McCloskey, Sexton. Ullster have a very exciting young backline, could dominate Irish selections for years to come.
Woluld make sense for everyone if one or two of them came down here. In the national interest of course.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Yeah they’re in with a big chance now but they’re on the road again in the QF

Bath v. London Irish
Leicester v. Newcastle
Montpellier v. Benetton

A great demonstration of the importance of a very good maul. If Munster & Connacht were as competent in this aspect of the game both of them might still be in their respective competitions. Certainly Ulster were up against a pick-up collection with no team experience but the technical quality of their set-piece and maul gave their backs some room to show their pace and passing talents.

Also a good reminder to the Leinster Coaches to spend a little time dismantling mauls over the next few days as Exeter will definitely try to emulate Ulster's mauling display.

Wow - reading tonight that there was a suspected COVID case in the Wasps squad on Friday with one player being isolated. EPCR were notified and following discussions the match was finally given the go ahead about one hour before kick off. The player then tested negative today however, considering the situation with Toulon, this is not a good look for EPCR!

so...

there's at least C differences here
1: player apparently(?) tested negative
2: I don't know the player was so don't know their position and who or how may close contact there amy or may not have been
C: the match took place in the UK, so the official UK medical advice (which is no-one actually gives an actual f%~k? was probably followed

I think Stewart Moore is an excellent young player too. Ulster should be winning / making the final of the Challenge Cup, they've got a great squad. They've got some decent premiership clubs left but I think they can win it.

I don’t see how it’s in anyway similar, unless I’m reading you wrong it looks like somebody thought the had covid but turned out they didn’t. In the Toulon game somebody actually had covid and close contacts.

That was the best I have seen Sale play in many, many years - like 15 years or so. They took off from the opening whistle like a rocket. The Scarlets didn't look they were ready for that sort of intensity at all.

Probably down to good coaching from Sanderson.

I’m watching on BT and Benjamin Kayser is a very decent co commentator.

Enjoyed O'Gara dropping his mask so we could lip read his opinion of that c~*k up.

Scarlets were pathetic last week but Sale really did destroy them physically and yet La Rochelle are able to do similar to them today. That power is scary, especially in the scrum.

Yeah, mincing Sale's scrum and very hard to stop in the tackle the foundation for me.
