Jacob Stockdale - Ulster Rugby
The 2018 Six Nations Player of the Year continues to go from strength to strength in the Ulster and Ireland shirt. Stockdale scored twice for the Irish province to take his tally for the tournament to six tries from five games. A lethal strike rate has seen him score in all five pool games so far. His try in the second half was the pick of the bunch, collecting the ball at half way from Will Addison, Stockdale surged down the left wing before chipping over the cover defence to beat three defenders to score.
Jacob Stockdale HAD NO RIGHT to score from there! 😮— Rugby on BT Sport (@btsportrugby) January 12, 2019
Shrugs the defender off...
Chips a beauty through...
Beats 3 defenders to the ball...
On a different level 🙌
His 2nd of the game, his 6th in the tournament which makes him the top scorer. pic.twitter.com/AUjjkdNiir
Will Addison - Ulster Rugby
The former Sale Sharks captain is as versatile as they come, after Billy Burns suffered calf trouble, Addison received the kicking duties for the Irish province and once again showed how important he has become to the Ulster side. He provided the assist for the Stockdale try in the second half and looked dangerous whenever he was given ball in open spaces. Addison kicked 8 points on the night, beat four defenders and made 11 tackles. He has settled into life in Belfast with ease and seems to be improving every time he pulls on the Ulster jersey.
Jordi Murphy - Ulster Rugby
The Leinster Academy graduate has slotted into the Ulster back row with Sean Reidy and Marcell Coetzee with ease. The dynamic trio have been at the forefront of the recent Ulster resurgence across the Guinness Pro 14 and Champions Cup. Murphy made his mark in defence with a game high 17 tackles and cleaned out many rucks with great intensity. He made a huge turnover with the game in the balance in the final quarter as the Belfast-based outfit moved closer to the quarter finals.
