    In pro rugby, very little happens without premeditation. I doubt my incident with make Tuesday’s highlight reel however.

    As suspected nothing in the highlights reel. Other than for Red’s second try you can see the Ulster substitutes warming up in the other in-goal, in the background. And at the end of the game you can see them milling around behind the technical area.

    Well I finally managed to get hold of a full match replay. At that moment of the game the substitutes are all seated 7 or 8 meters from the touchline. It is actually the “water carrier” who gets up off his seat in the technical area.
    , leans out over the line delimiting the area to touch the ball in flight; a mere fraction of a second before the Munster winger would have caught the ball. Very much like the situation where Alain Rolland told the Quin’s physio it was well out of order. Given that at the subsequent lineout 5 meters inside Munster’s half that “ water carrier” (with a headset in his ears obviously) was barking out long winded instructions to the Ulster pack as they lined up, I feel sure his actions were malicious. (Ulster coaching staff, shame on you.)

    That said, if the subs had been allowed keep warm on the touchline, personally I would not expect them to behave in such a manner. RC? This was a game, which went on to have a lot (LOT) of niggle, and I think much of it was down to the laxity of the match referee. Of course, it’s easier not to call the water carrier over, of course it’s easier to pretend we don’t hear him coaching the players. However it does nothing for the game to take the easy road.

    For context, in the Quins game it happened (I think) three times, making the crowd mad.
    The physio received a warning
    Then when it happened again, Skinner got the card
