Ulster protest over cup fighting 
 
Toulouse player Trevor Brennan clashed with Ulster fans
Ulster are to lodge a complaint with the organisers of the Heineken Cup following ugly scenes during their 28-13 defeat at Toulouse on Sunday.
Coach Mark McCall said the Irish province would be citing Toulouse player Trevor Brennan for allegedly striking Ulster lock Justin Harrison.

Both players were sin-binned but McCall insisted Brennan should have been given a straight red card.

Brennan could be in further trouble for clashing with Ulster fans.

Ulster chief executive Mike Reid is expected to make a statement on Sunday night.

Coach McCall confirmed: "We will be lodging a complaint against Trevor Brennan for what he did to our player.

"We are very lucky Justin has not got something seriously wrong with him."

Ulster lost the match 28-13, although both sides were already out of contention for a quarter-final place.

Check out the munster fans forum, AZ - there's plenty of discussion on there, a lot of it it has to be said is contradictory!

I don't know what was said but I'm sure he didn't get it for sitting quietly.

Trevor obviously doesn't believe in Santa. Bit rough all the same- there he was (he's named on the BBC story as Patrick Bamford)impressing the babe with his wit when TB strikes. Hope the BBC and Noel Thompson give the same prominence as GAA fracas.

 Brennan is clearly way out of order.

 Saying that think of Cantona and to a lesser extent Zidane. There is usually a little fire involved. Shouting ' your poetry is crap' or ' you're a has been' wasn't what set off the first two.

 Ulster fans claim the chant was 'who are you'. That seems unlikely given that Alfie Thomas had to be restrained by officials from going into the same crowd.

Apparently he was giving Trevor Brennan the verbals (about his pub or mother or both) and Trevor took the law into his own hands and chinned him.

I imagine Trevor is deservedly going to get a long ban for this given that he's no spring chicken it might even be the end of his career. Can't condone what he did but I don't have much sympathy for the Ulster supporter either. I hate mouthy pricks like that who think they can abuse a sportsman like that just because they know they can get away with it.

allegedly - he called brennan's mother a whore and started chanting it repeatedly. In fairness he'd have to say something fairly bad for Brennan to do that. And if that is what transpired- fair play Trev i'd have done the same. Gareth thomas also had to be restrained.
