Dan McFarland's selection for Ulster's game against Munster is a first: no [born-and-bred] Ulstermen in the starting pack.

Five from Leinster, one each from NZ, SA and Aus.

11 Leinster guys in the 2 squads, and could be more!
Sign of the times.

Wonder how many of the 11 would get into or be close to a Leinster natch day 23.
Moore and Jordi would be 2.
Would also wonder how many of the 11 would get into one of the other provinces match day 23.
From time to time we go through an ex Leinster other provinces 23.

Hook missed pens in the 79th and 83rd mins.
Is that Kings first away win?

Marty Moore has become ever more rounded.

So frustrating, you can see the talent is there.

Klyen off before 50 minutes...really really struggling to see why he was in Japan.

Some of Ulster's handling errors are just dreadful, they undo so much of the good work that they do.

Struggling to see what Haley brings to the table too. He got MOTM in a game recently but he'd made heaps of mistakes.

Jordi appears to have caught stupid from his Ulster teammates. Gets involved in a scuffle on the ground instead of getting back on the line, and Conway zooms through the hole he left

Pity about JJ. Would like to see him have a good run, he could be very exciting.
Ulster are starting to look like a team again but the handling errors really cost them tonight.
Scannell has some boot on him.

Treviso up by 4 at HT away to Scarlets in an empty stadium. Have the Welsh given up on pro club rugby?

Thought he was going to get mom after about 15 mins, the way Horan was building him up.

Reports coming out that CVC have purchased 27% of Pro14 and will take over the commercialisation of the league from Celtic Rugby DAC.

The value given in the BBC report is conflicting. One figure states £120 million, while another says that Ireland, Wales, Scotland in line for £35 million each with the Italian and South African teams in line for something too. £120 million would be £80 million less than CVC paid for an equivalent share in the Premiership last December.
