Bath outplaying Ulster. Still behind though thanks to a free try. Why do our half backs start so slowly, its like they have to give away points to motivate themselves.

JJ not himself, Roko looks well up for it, some great hits. Its there for the taking but can they take it?

Ulster have a 14 man defensive line, but one sweeper the whole time. Thereís acres of space - we need to mix it up with a few decent kicks to corner IMO.

Roko is our only hope of a try

Fantastic tackle by Priestland then Burns, did he lead with a kick there though?

Our attack seems non-existent again. We are going through the motions with no intent and we have to put more bodies into the breakdown than them. Going to struggle to turn this around unless we find some fluency...

AAAAAAAAAND we score!!! (Sm6)

The new Roko then!

Is that Burns' calf problem back again. Great kick though.

Love the enterprise but shouldn't we play for field position?

Replay shows clear no arms tackle on Mercer at the death there - should have been penalty to Bath.
Lucky second Ulster try when when had 2 players being treated for injury.
Really, really unlucky to lose that.

Perfect example of why we need fresh half backs. Both just locked into robot mode!

She was on the money - we played way to much rugby in the middle of the field and due to the lack of creativity we have we just go side to side and do nothing with the ball.

Should have won that with the territory and possession we had. The lack of go forward we have is really limiting us and nullifying the good work the forwards are doing

I guess you've got to credit Ulster's defence. But we did carve out enough half chances to win that - we just aren't sophisticated or accomplished enough to convert a high enough proportion of chances though Too depressing to think that we're as good as out. If we were able to field our absolute first choice 23 it's not beyond us, but when does that ever happen.

I thought the same...too much going on when the clocks gone red and it's the end of the game. I think the TMO might have said something otherwise.

Hamer-Webb's try was great, thought Roko and Beno were excellent. Shame Freddie gets cramp consistently after 50 minutes!

I think we'll win next week.

I'm also staggered their No3 got away with what was a clear knee lift into Freddie as he made the tackle from their solitary attack in the second half. It was as dangerous, if not more so, that Brew's offence for the red card last week, but not even looked at.

Just got back - Really enjoyable close match I thought. Some interesting omissions in terms of blocks and offsides IMO, but couldnít really argue that either side didnít deserve to win. Amazed he didnít stop play when around RM who was having head treatment, but awarded so too late to moan.
