Stuck in: Nick Timoney in the thick of it with Ulster

A fine sense of timing is a valuable habit to possess as a back-row forward. Few of late have displayed better than Ulster's Nick Timoney.

Ahead of tomorrow night's Challenge Cup last-16 clash with Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop, not only is the 25-year-old enjoying his best string of form in an Ulster jersey, but his strong run of performances have come at exactly the moment his favoured jersey was unexpectedly left up for grabs.
