Another game low on quality until Ulster decided to start playing.
Tigers just about struggling through to something half respectable at present.
I can't say I liked the kicking the ball away to the young Irish full back constantly, Leicester should be better than a tactic like that in my opinion, I'd say play to the strengths and if that is it then things are worse than I thought!
And what is the point in turning down three points so often with such a poor line out and maul!

Europe was always a step to far for this Tigers squad.

It's my town, it's my team. Please, someone, get us back to where we once were. I don't mean winning everything in sight. Just competing with a team playing as a team.

I know it shouldn't matter. It's only a game. But there's a proud heritage that goes with putting that shirt on and a Tigers performance means so much to me.

Let's at least look competent. Do the basics right?

Go on. Make an old man happy.

I would settle for just not making the SAME mistakes week after week and year after year......

Its ingrained, its time to ditch the Tigers jobs for life culture, we need to evolve and not just stagnate.

Missed opportunities tonight, didn't take chances when in their 22.. Ulster took their opportunity when it came available.
Too slow to counter ruck yet again allowed ulster easy ball where as we were slow on our own rucks allowing defensive lines to set.
I'm looking forward to next season as will do nothing in Europe or the Premiership

Supporting since 1977 and proud of it!!

The ones whose best days are demonstrably in the past, but then we would not have a squad. Lets face facts we are stuck with the players that Messrs Kay, Underwood, Murphy and Glyn have decided we should sign / retain.

We have a squad selected by committee. No wonder it looks like a gnu.

Our history at Ulster has been terrible. Losing 33-0 in 2004, 42-7 in 2012 and 26-7 in 2015 is not a great record so don't be too depressed. I had the misfortune of being at those games so today is some improvement.

Why do you think Murphy had anything to do with the signings?

Well after a good win at Saints last week it was back to the same old, negative, brain dead Rugby. Never looked like scoring after the early penalty. If the team could just learn one simple thing - you can't win by aimlessly hoofing it to the opposition when in an attacking position. It's rinse and repeat. I predict no play-offs again this year.
Nowadays referees decide matches, players by how much.

MOC has gone but the clueless kicking the ball away continues! Insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and hoping for a different outcome. With Murphy now in charge why does this insanity continue?
