      Well, they have Rodney as cover for Herbst.
      Tough break for Henry after missing a lot of last season. Falling down the Ireland pecking order.

        Yeah we'll be alright without herbst for a bit, Rodney and Lutton should make a decent shot at covering that.
        Henry is another matter, while only a shadow of the Henry of 3 years ago he still was a big boost when he came back in late last season.
        A backrow with Henry and marcell injured and big nick gone is a bit lightweight, grand if we play attacking rugby but it'll be an issue of we have to start diack, reidy and Wilson against the likes of Glasgow, Leinster or Munster.

                McCloskey is a big bloke but look at how massive Henderson seems beside him. I'd love to see Henderson have an injury-free season and really show his stuff this year. If he is not already world class, then he must be close , challenging players like Retallick, Etzebeth Itoje
                Erse end of nowhere

                  Well he's also standing closer to the camera.

                    Ah stop being so technical!
                    "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"

                      But not by much.

                        But they're not far away from the camera. I mean Henderson is obviously bigger than Choo Choo Stoo but there's only a couple of inches in height.

                        This isn't a great picture either as Iain is still closer but it gives a more accurate idea:

                          Charles Piutau looking fantastic for Ulster against Saints, currently being shown on UlsterTV youtube channel. Charles just had a fantastic break and a classy out the back door left handed pass for a try.

                          Currently Ulster 29 Saints 10

                              Quite a good performance by the Ulster reserves against a fullstrength Saints. Some good looking kids coming through (Herron,FH; Lyttle,wing). Big Rodney looked fit and played well, with a few powerful carries and tackles. As Windeos has mentioned above - Charles Piuitau total class. He could galvananize Ulster backplay this year. Several regulars yet to return : Pienaar, Jackson, Bowe, Trimble, Gilroy, Marshall, Olding, Payne, Best, Henderson, Tuohy, Herbst - but many will be spending significant time on Ireland duty.
