    Paris v Ulster
    </div>

    Very much a case of the dead rubber here with only ranking points up for grabs although Matt Williams seems more interested in experimenting as he's decided to rest several key players.

    Darren Cave, Rory Best, Paddy Wallace, Ian Humphreys, Justin Fitzpatrick and Stephen Ferris are all left out. So you'd expect they'd be doing well to deny Paris the bonus point, however that also depends on Paris' own attitude although you'd think that regardless of the side they pick they'll still have too much for the fledgling side that Williams seems intent on picking.

  3. It's a good opportunity for Ian Whitten, Willie Falloon and Chris Henry to show what they can do in a game with no pressure on them. David Pollack will want to show Declan Kidney he's foolish for leaving him out of the Ireland squad. Stade should win handily though.

    Pollack is captaining Ulster despite Kieron Dawson being in the squad (Dawson has been captain whenever Rory Best is unavailable). It promises to be a big occasion for the young flanker. His competition with Sean O'Brien to be the long term Irish international openside should stand Ireland in good stead.

    Himself and O'Brien are both absolutely fantastic player and fantastic prospects. With themselves and Ferris it seems we're secure in the back row for a while. It's the front five I wory about for Ireland's future. Healy is the only class young player I see at the moment.

    let off for Paris there, Ulster are all over them with Marshall just losing control over the line.
     
  8. 3-0 to Ulster who have started brilliantly.

    it's not often you praise Trimble's defence but he did superbly well to deny the try after the inital break by Oelshig who waltzed through the Ulster defence.

    Barnes does Ulster for offside despite Paris forwards going in off their feet.

    backchat makes the kick easier after Schifcofske was done for not releasing.

    6-3 Paris

    Paris down to 14 with Rabadan in the bin, good chance for Ulster to captalise now

    from what I can gather watching a poor quality stream with french commentary (and my french is very limited), Ulster are playing much better than Stade.

    Try Ulster!

    well that's a decent start with Steinmetz in for the try, stretching Paris left and right, great work from the forwards.

    that's a shocking miss from O'Connor.

    8-6 Ulster

    I'm not at all surprised...
    Ulster will probably win this one now...

    Ulster make it 11-6 with a penalty...

    back in the lead now but Beauxis failed to convert a relatively easy kick for someone of his standard.
     
  18. An Tarbh

    stretching the lead now as Beauxis adds 3 points from the penalty.

    17-11 now

    Gasnier kills off any hopes Ulster would have had with a try in the corner.

    Ahhh ****. Still a very brave performance by Ulster's second team/youngsters! :bravo:

    consolation for Ulster as well, nicely worked try and good note to finish but again too late unfortunately.
