Hasn’t Iwan Stephens just signed a new contract basically showing his intention to play for England (even though he will still be eligible for Wales)

It’ll be much of the same squad I’d imagine, rotation on the starting line up and subs.

Corey Baldwin in for the injured Jonny McNicholl, Wyn Jones in for Steff Thomas, possibly Daf Hughes in for Ryan Elias, Kieran Hardy in for Gareth Davies, Josh Macleod in for Tomas Lezana.

1. Wyn Jones 2. Dafydd Hughes 3. Jevan Sebastian 4. Vaea Fifita 5. Sam Lousi 6. Blade Thomson 7. Josh Macleod 8. Sione Kalamafoni 9. Kieran Hardy 10. Sam Costelow 11. Ryan Conbeer 12. Jonny Williams 13. Jonathan Davies 14. Corey Baldwin 15. Tom Rogers

16. Ryan Elias 17. Steff Thomas 18. Harri O’Connor 19. Tom Price 20. Iestyn Rees or Shaun Evans 21. Gareth Davies 22. Rhys Patchell 23. Ioan Nicholas

We would have won if Ellia's and Davies had not started...iwould have brought them of the bench 
Only positive was Webb was terrible... nothing against the guy,  I just can't stand mark orders

Yes, two years and he’s played for England U20. I can dream though!

Will be a tough game but if we can build on how we played in the second half on Saturday we could win this one.

Think the emerging Ireland issue is a red herring in all honesty (see what I did there). Of the 9 players for me only Doak & Balacoune are what I would consider top 23 players. Ulster will be a formidable team & with their attacking prowess we will get a good idea of how much progress our defence has made. If we start like we did last weekend and play that poorly for 40 minutes the game will be over. 

Play like we did from the start of the 2nd half for 80 minutes, take points when they are on offer, be disciplined and we can certainly win it. However that set of points would see us beat everyone in this league so consistency in performance has to be our aim & that bar was set at last weekend's 2nd half - tempo & attacking intent.

A few weeks back we gave a trial to 3 Fijians? who were in the UK with the military. One of them was a wing. Did anything become of this?
I used to be a big fan of Steff Evans but the game has become a lot more physical and competitive, and pretty much every opposition coach is familiar with his defensive frailties as well as his lack of outright pace. Now I find myself looking through the whole of our squad, academy, and our feeder clubs for an alternative, or at least, give an opportunity to, but, so far without success.

Ulster are never easy to play against, agreed but I do think if we can maintain the level of defence we had against the Ospreys, there is no reason to think we can't win this.

Ulster also without Iain Henderson and James Hume.

Agreed, as good as Lezana is he doesn't offer enough over the ball.

  The start cost us dear against our noisy  neighbours. Passionless and error count first half was a worry. A full 80 minutes would have brought us a comfortable win and if we do that Saturday? We will be fine!

They’re still in training, at least I think 2 are. Wing and Flanker 
We're still still here!
