Ulster rugby have had a strange season this year with up and down results in both competitions. After performing well in the Champions Cup they let their form slip in the league much to the disappointment of many fans as they not sit in the position 4 of conference B but there has been some shining lights in Ulster this year and this is apparent in Ireland’s current six nations campaign.
Rory Best and Ian Henderson continue to be very important to both Ulster and Ireland and now the young Jacob Stockdale appears to have nailed his place on Ireland’s left wing as he has a record of 7 tries in 7 games for Ireland. At just 21 years old he appears to be the Tommy Bowe of the next generation which is sterling praise indeed.
Other young talent such as Stuart Mccloskey seems to be out of the picture due to Ulster not firing well particularly in the league this season whilst Jared Payne has been injured for much of the season which has given ex Ulster player Christ Farrell his first six nation cap against Wales in the Aviva where he justifiably won the man of the match award after a great performance.
Ireland face Scotland next at home who had their first Calcutta cup (by beating England) win in 10 years over the weekend at home in Murrayfield. This could prove to be a tough test for Ireland but at home Ireland should have the muscle to run over the Scots before facing England for the grand slam on Saint Patricks day.
