          Yeah I watched most of it. Cheetahs are very good this season. Ruan Pienaar has them motoring nicely.

          Ulster defense was poor, and they only got 3 late tries in last 20 mins, and Cheetahs got a YC in that period too. The winger Volmink was excellent for home side, getting 3 tries and overall their defence was very strong.

          We’ll have our work cut out for us next weekend
          "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

          Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

            Yeah, watched it too. Cheetahs are a good side and very dangerous out wide. Lots of pace.

            Last 20 was very entertaining but the game was lost at that stage. End to end stuff. Hume was quite decent at 12, Marshall looked slow and much too heavy at 13.

                Started last week. He was ok but they were losing badly so was a tough game for him. Dunno if he played this weekend.

                  He didn't play this weekend. Not sure if injured, wasn't even on the bench.

                    I didn’t realise best has retired from all rugby, an article during the week said it but I figured it was reported wrong
                    and only now when I see the team to face Bath he isn’t in it.

                    surely if a fella is good enough to play World Cup level in October he can play PRO14 / HCUP sub in November & December?

                      Good thing about watching Marty today is at least we know what happened to all those cakes when they wouldn't put the requested slogans on them.

                        Food waste is a terrible scourge alright, glad he's been doing his bit to address it.

                        I'm 8 minutes behind the live feed, but thus far Addison has stood out for being consistently poor under the high ball. A few promising moments have seen advantage return to Bath. Stockdale not great either.
                        Tis but a scratch.

                          Missed the gsme, was Cooney the star again?
                          He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

                            Apart from missing a very easy kick close to the posts, I think he probably was. He certainly does not let a mistake like this throw him off his game. Scored a good try too.

                              Stupid penalty form Jamie Roberts gave Ulster an easy penalty to go ahead at 70 minutes. At 81 minutes, Bath had an opportunity to win but their 8 chose to pass to the wing, and stockdale managed to get back and grab it. Good game though. Cooney MOTM.
