Where is Nakarawa expected to play? There seems to be a suggestion that he could be in the back row as a direct replacement for Coetzee

You don't have to put him at number 8 to have him replace Coetzee's ball-carrying ability, he can do that from the second row. Having said that, he played number 8 for Racing and won European Player of the Year.

You'd think 4. Henderson 5. Carter 8. Nakarawa would be better than any of the other options with the current squad. If they get Deegan it could be a different story.

Cheers didnt realise that. I just always think of him as a lock.

It's a bit of a risk by Ulster considering his problems at racing but as it's a 1 year deal its seems like a smart risk. Ulster are a well coached team and a player like him in good form could be the bit of x factor they need to push on. Similar to Glasgow when he was there. Think Ulster could still do with a really physical forward to get go forward ball when they are finding it hard.

Anybody heard anything on who might replace peel? Would be great to get an irish coach maybe someone who is overseas at the moment. I dont have anyone in mind except prendergast but can't imagine he'd be interested

Apparently both Doak and Payne applied for the assistant coach role at least.
