    This is Clermont's pool realistically, up against three decent teams who all have a fair chance of at least a home win against the French though. Can see any of these going through as a best loser.

    Agreed. TBH, all four teams have started the season poorly. As you say, Clermont should win it comfortably and the other three will probably just take points off of each other.

    What I’ve seen of Bath so far suggests the weather on any given day will play a part in our matches. We look like a wet weather team

    Looking at the pitch - lends a new meaning to the pool stages!

    Ireland's form scrumhalf, but enough about Alby Mathewson. Great piece of work from Cooney. Transcending Ulster's bad form.

    To be fair Cooney should have been in Japan. A superb player and the best IQ 9 by a distance the last 12 months

    Ulster start stringing performances together and they drop like flies. They're cursed.

    Just looking forward to the pub now. Found out last night that Arthur Guinness was born on the 24th of September, the same day as Eoin Farrell and Yours Truly. Mad to think the three greatest men in history were born on the same date, much to celebrate.

    Five unbroken minutes of incredibly weird rugby ending in a bit of a surreal try for Ulster.

    Just got back from a run (picture those long strides, glutes pumping, even the dogs out for a walk stopping to watch) to see Ulster score what looks like another against the run of play try? This would be a great result for Ulster in this group. I could honestly see them mugging a result from Clermont at home as well.

    Great moment for the young guy.

    Edit: Addison should really have done better
