Have to say that I'm looking forward to this. You'd have to think the lads heads are going to be up, and they've got a point to prove after last week.

Bundee will be a loss, of course, but should be a great battle.

There's the aggression and physicality we've been begging for for so long. Hopefully the new coaching ticket can get them to produce that regularly, because if we can manage to show that grit every week we're on an upward trajectory.

Plenty of mistakes but they're much easier to forgive when they manhandled their opposition.

Another big performance from Carty, worth keeping him on as captain? Hopefully the funds can be found to keep him in Connacht. Tom Daly was also excellent and could have been MOTM. Niall Murray already looks like a complete player at 21. Paul Boyle is some man, really drives standards in the pack even with the odd mistake.

Great performance from 1 - 23, has to be said. We were clinical in exploiting a mis-firing Ulster team on the day. We could have easily ran another few points on them.

Think a good shout re trying Jack out as Capt. I'm not sure if it was the change in venue, but he seemed to be very vocal, very bossy (in a good way) and very focused on the game. At one point, I think it was after a semi-kickable pen, he had to ask whether we had the bonus point wrapped up, clearly he was just keeping his head in the game and not worrying about the scoreboard.

Maul defence was great. Obviously it's been a major work on for them recently, and it's paying dividends. Bit of a minor step backwards when it comes to lineouts, but a blip as a opposed to anything more serious.

Shame in a way that we have such a lay off now, you'd hope we'll be able to retain that momentum after the break.
