Their scrum is a serious weapon - Gareth Thomas impressed me among a few others like Morris, Griffiths and Morgan in the back row. Ulster seemed to run out of ideas once their hard one out carrying kept running into brick walls. For Ulster to really progress into a top European team I can't help thinking they need to find a decent scrum and a 10 - Burns is not the answer for me.

Not quite sure of the point there GPR 🧜🏼‍♀️ �£ 

Well EO I was having  a debate with some on this forum regarding the merits or otherwise of us going for Reffell. My point was that we have better players at 7 already in Lezana & Mcloud sio why would he want to come to us to be 3rd choice.

An opposing view was made that he was a  starter in a very strong performing Leicester team which I disputed saying that when the South Africans were playing he would not be a starter - hence my post.

It was very much a tongue in cheek comment Wink

Come on now EO - fishing emoji I can only just turn on the computer. Ask me a question you get an answer - I am a simple lad really. LOL

Bearing in mind the woes of the Welsh scrum this autumn isn't it time for the WRU to invest in the best scrum coach in the Northern Hemisphere? Whoever he gets his hands on improves off the radar. It was evident again yesterday as the Harlequins scrum gave the Tigers scrum a going over. Yes Quins had Marler but the tight head Collier has never been that dominant & they were up against an International front row - Genge, Montoya & Coles. 

Add in the huge improvement that Kyle Sinckler made when he was under his coaching influence and it really is crying out for Adam Jones to be offered the job with Wales ahead of the 6 nations.

😂 I have never been Mermaid fishing EO although I have seen the old film Splash with a rather beguiling mermaid I must admit 😉

Ospreys defence was like their team of old - Impossible to penetrate. This is going to be a real problem for us on New Years Day.

Yes, they know who, how and when to tackle and are physical enough to make it very difficult for most players to slip through. As a line they are also up very quickly, which to me suggests that there is space behind that line to chip/crosskick into, but this relies on our boys accelerating into that space to reclaim the ball or at least putting pressure on their 15 or whoever has been left to patrol that space on his own. I'm sure that Patch and Costellow have the ability to see this opportunity, but unless we practice the chasing/following up it will just be wasted possession.
