4 Prem teams playing each other.

Some good games lined up.
Funny how Bath and Irish + Tigers and Falcons have played each other recently as well.

Is everything fixed for Semis? Because I would love love love to have PJ and Irish playing against Ulster, at Ravenhill. Irony is a beautiful thing

Henderson a maybe for this weekend and Izuchukwu going for a scan with it not looking good.

If they're both out I'm not sure if Ulster have a fit secondrow outside AOC and Treadwell?

Matty Rea may end up being the reserve second row, not ideal but hes a decent lineout option and a strong enough lad to hopefully hold his own. Would love Hendy to be back instead

Potential to be a quality game

Genuinely can't remember seeing him on the pitch,
Pretty sure he's been subbed on in games I've watched but I can't remember him doing anything

He's been on the bench twice, for a total of 23 minutes.
I missed the end of both, so haven't actually seen him yet.

ETA: just checked ESPN stats for those 2 games, apparently he's 2 from 2 tackles made, and 0 touches of the ball

Matty Rea to cover second row, and other than that it's as you were. Had some good games this year, but disappointed for Izuchukwu, he's looked bright

@Geordiefalcon I'm guessing Radwan is injured? Not seen him in a while - do you know when he's due back?

yes he suffered a nasty knee injury a few weeks back. Nothing really confirmed about the length of his absence, but we assume its a long term one by the silence. Such a shame.

Think not having Henderson is a massive blow for Ulster. The pack is really lacking something without him and Coetzee. Need the backs to play to their full potential.
