I think the word to use today is insipid. Our handling was poor, never really looked like breaking the line and scoring tries. Too many players totally anonymous in the game to win against a decent Ulster side who were excellent in defense in fairness. I would rather be poor today than in the semi and I still think Leinster have more than enough to the title this season. Allez Les Bleus !!!
Brilliant win by Ulster. Well done on securing 5th place 👏👏👏👏 #ULSvLEI— Rugby Onslaught 🏉 (@Rugbyonslaught) May 6, 2017
Well done Ulster better team all day bullied us all over the field today and if we play like this again we will win nothing players who should be better over throwing ball on a number of occasions just not good enough going around the if as if we have the god given right to beat Ulster and l really hope Leo is giving them a good bollocking players will have to have a really good look at themselves

Ulster celebrating like they're in the play-offs??— Daragh Mulligan (@dazmanOnline) May 6, 2017
Nothing to play for, hard to motivate the lads. Serious work needed on handling skills!
@UlsterRugby thank you Ruan. Sorry to see you go.Travesty.

Go forward is crucial for us, didn't get enough. I'm not sure the second ball player at 12 works for us. Need a massive carrying 13 if we are gonna do that. We were a little predictable today
@UlsterRugby and @UlsterRSC celebrate like they won the entire PRO12 - I guess that's a massive compliment to @leinsterrugby #ULSvLEI— Miriam Collins (@MiriamCol) May 6, 2017
Ulster were in need of a win and did everything needed for one. Leinster were lazy in spots and really didn't do enough to deserve a win. But as already said here, they weren't playing for anything while Ulster were salvaging some credibility and looking to see off players in a suitable way. Credit to them and in particular to Pienar and Wilson.
Done it! Hung deep as @RugbyLeinster_ stepped up a gear. Great game. Good luck in the playoffs @leinsterrugby @OLSCRugby @LeinsterLeo #rugby— #RugbyUlster_ (@RugbyUlster_) May 6, 2017
Dead rubber, just a training game.
One game away from seeing all these lads at the Aviva https://t.co/bqOnfP3UtP— Pat McCarry (@patmccarry) May 6, 2017
Brutal and simply not good enough. Our senior players need a good kick in the boll ox. I've been a fan of toner but simply he's a waste of a shirt this year. Triggs is equally useless. How can a head coach who was a secondrow simply not have one secondrow at the club at an acceptable level.
We better get the finger out because we have too many players who haven't learnt a thing from losing to the westies last year. Another season without a trophy is not acceptable.

Gulf in class between Reid and Henshaw. It's very sad to see Pienaar gone

Well @leinsterrugby not the party pooping type as they proved in #pro12 final last year and again today.— ger (@stranglemint) May 6, 2017
I think Leinster at times lacked a bit of direction. They'll not play many more games when they win as many opponents lineouts and are that dominant in the scrum, and still lose!! Fair play to Ulster, they beat them with half a team. Ruan is special, deserves the win for his contribution. SUFTUM.

Pitch was unplayable, a disgrace.
IRFU call. All Ulster had to do was develop a competent 9 who was Irish— Leinster PAGuy (@LeinsterPAGuy) May 6, 2017
Ulster were by far the better team. And that's speaking as a die hard leinster fan our lads just didn't bring their A game....much improvement needed....

@HarpinOnRugby Carberry forced it today especially with his miss passes...sorry to say but Noel Reid doesnt help him out massively..— Mark Jackson (@markusjacksonus) May 6, 2017
Meaningless fixture - but lovely end off for Roger and Ruan :-)
Had the feel of a trial match about it but happy at least for Ruan & Roger's sendoffs. Jackson clear winner of outhalf battle. #ULSvLEI— Harpin' On Rugby 🏉 (@HarpinOnRugby) May 6, 2017
