    Thought you said...’aiming for immorality ‘
    "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"

        Carty should have closed it out in the last ten by getting it off the field .
        Team were tired and Leinster really looked like they had two extra men . Great comeback by Leinster but I’d an awful feeling watching it that we wouldn’t get there . .

        Going on on the lash now

          Entertaining game, unlucky Connacht.
          Liam Toland loves the sound of his own voice. Ended up watching the 2nd half on mute.

            That was a smashing game of rugby, especially compared to last night's turgid-fest.

            Are Munster the Man Utd of rugby - very talented players but no plan on how to use them?

              Well if they win their next match 5-1, that'll do me.

                Did the same with Heaslip last week. I'm sure it's just that he's finding his feet as a commentator but he really sounds like he has no idea about the game, nothing of consequence to add whatsoever just loads of terrible "banter".

                      It's some sort of D4 version of Cockney Rhyming Slang

                        James Lowe out of this and the Toulouse game with suspension after his red card in Limerick. On the plus side, looks like Cian Kelleher is on his way back. You'd imagine that will see one of the fringe wingers leave, possibly Kearney or McFadden.

                          Adam Byrne is a very serious talent - from an Irish point of view he should be a starter or be heading elsewhere(preferably Munster).

                            Nothing to do with D4, it's a nickname JGP has been given by some on the Ulster forum for the reasons you have correctly outlined

                            I am expecting Leinster's reserves to be too strong for Ulster's reserves (hardly a ground breaking conclusion to be fair) PP are giving Ulster a 23 point start on the handicap bet.

                              4 academy in the Ulster team, waving the white flag before their supporters even get tot the RDS, could be in for a roasting.

                                2 tries for Leinster in first 14 mins - led 14-0 but Ulster just mauled over from a well worked move, now 14-7 after 19 mins.

                                Leinster very cynical before that with 3 of them offside (3 players) stopping a good Ulster move 5m from line. Ref gave Ulster the penalty which they scored from. Lowry off for a HIA
