    Fair play to Leinster in the end, they operate within the rules of the league, manage their squad well and get the team primed to win the matches no matter who they put out on the pitch. Funny to think that after Munster, Zebre were the closest to toppling them this season, iirc.

      The NH refs didn't get the message the the SH refs got, especially the NZ ones. If a tackler arrives a split second after the ball coming from 9 out of a ruck, he is almost certainly offside. The refs down there are willing to blow the whistle, up in the NH, they essentially have to be grossly offside to get the call. If you watched the NZ games, you'll remember how many times per game it was called compared to how it has been called in the pro14 and how, as a result, those games featured great attacking rugby and very few carriers being driven back behind the gain line as soon as they got the ball.

        Tough Judges primary role should be to call offsides.

          That is the easy stuff to ref and crooked feeds to line outs/Scrums.

          Scrum feed is obviously something which the powers that be don’t mind but I really cannot understand the recent blind eye or inconsistency on line outs.

              Best of luck Jackie & co. including the Pseudo Nordies!

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

                Ulster totally written off by all and sundry, reminds me of Munster going to Quin's and shocking everyone.

                  Stockdale was totally wrong-footed for Toulouse's opener. I hadn't seen much of Toulouse this season, but if that was a sign of how good their attack is then Ulster are in for a torrid time. Would love them to pull off a miracle here though.

                      Burns off injured, Hume carrying a knock after 2 minutes. Not looking promising.

                        Sad to see Burns go off - his break earlier was great.

                          And Stockdale playing himself off the Ireland team.
                          But if they can hang in there for the next 30 minutes ...

                            Thought there might have been a penalty against Toulouse for contact on Lowry in the air.

                              Inaccuracy off the tee keeping Ulster in this.

                                Great break by Lowry there, but Toulouse have bulldozed the breakdown for the turnover for the second time in a few minutes.
