1. At under 20 level he was regarded as a rising star at 13.
2. When available during his time at PYS & when we had a selection crisis at 13 he was overlooked with even Steff Evans selected ahead of him.
3. His injury record since 20's time has been poor. 

All told I don't think I would disagree with anyone who felt that maybe we lost an opportunity somewhere along the line to give him some time at 13 but I would also agree with Wil that injuries may well have played a significant part in that lack of gametime. 

Nobody is right or wrong here - I am glad that he has picked up another contract because, like many in Wales, he was looking at perhaps giving up rugby professionally. Good luck Corey - stay fit young man & show what you can do. 
Yes -well said 👍

I don't think we'd be that lucky but apparently he only signed for Ulster on a 1 year deal after 6 years in France after coming through the Munster academy and Ireland U-19s. Known for his carrying and lineout ability. 


Includes a Youtube highlight reel. 

He'll probably head back to France but he's big, athletic, a lineout specialist, and some of the clips show good hands too.

Bradshaw-Ryan is probably more alike Tom Price than Beirne and there's probably a good reason why he's only had one game for Ulster in the season he was there. On the other hand I doubt if you could make a similar highlights video for Tom Price.

I think that's largely because Ulster had a fairly settled 4 second rows ahead of him in O'Conner, Treadwell, Carter and Henderson. He only signed for 1 year so I'm wondering if someone was injured pre-season so he was just cover. 

Anyway, point is, very few large second rows come up in budget, even less flukes like Beirne.

Yeah looking on a couple of other forums, he was signed with a view to a couple of Ulster players being away & injuries but that wasn't the case & he wasn't given a look in.

Might be worth a one year deal if cheap enough.

unless hes a certainty would stay away. we only have so much budget and i think taking punts on players at the moment is too much of a risk with our limited funding, unless we know indepth knowledge on someone.
hoping van den burg when he comes in knows a 2nd row or 2 from south africa.

I don't disagree with you, but he's put a solid stint in French D2 and signed a two-year extension with Nevers before joining Ulster so he's not a completely unknown quantity.

I’ve not followed ProD2 for a huge period, however, Nevers haven’t necessarily threatened the play-offs during that time as far as I recall - could be wrong though. EDIT That’s not the situation at all. See below.

As far as reinforcements from SA, Wil and others on here would know more about comparative pay. You’d imagine getting better value in that market and with Van den Berg, it’s likely he’d be well-placed to identify someone appropriate. Plus haven’t our SA signings generally gone well?

Werner yes a real nugget, Bullbring yes during our Championship season, Cassiem yes in his second season, we now know he was carrying an injury 1st season, Snyman was ok, George Earle was a little injury prone from memory. Clayton Blommetjies not so good. 

Can't think of any other SA players we've had. So I'd agree, overall they've gone well.

Just checked my inclination re Nevers and I was completely wrong. They’ve been really consistent over the last 5 years at least, being in or just outside the play-offs

Personally I would prefer a Tongan second row who would assimilate to the successful culture that already exists in the squad.

If the Tongan recruit was a hard nosed scrummaging type of lock thats fine. We don't need another looser type of 2nd row with Louisi. Morgan Jones has made that step up so we need some back up. Hopefully Jac Price will get himself fit and start to build on the promise shown in 2022 but currently we have 3 genuine 2nd rows on our books which is way under strength.

certainly need 2 2nd rows and another backrower, plus a hard scrummaging tight head.....but these are all if we had money!
