Re: Japan RWC

not that much -- between South Africa and the ABs to be honest -- basically the game has become a ruck fest and if your not cheating at ruck time you must be injured -- and refs will only blow the obvious infringement especially inside the 22 with eyes generally focused on defenders. That said the l...

Re: Pre Season Friendlies 2019/20

Watched the second pre-season on tube -- the ref was a home and no Nigel called several marginal off -sides putting Glasgow into the corner -- to maul the tries -- that said Glasgow got a couple of nice trys wide on the wing because Ulster and Gilroy especially were defending to narrowly. Gilroy's p...

Re: Japan RWC

The only asset Kearney has is his sureness under the highball and there is little difference between Conway and Earls — earls might have a bit more pace .

Re: Japan RWC

Not to sure how you could really "fix" an International setting in an assistant coaches bench to be honest. 'Fixing' would require the input of players but in the end it comes down to the type of bet -- I know that in las Vegas on the Super bowl the number of bets available was well into the hundred...

Re: PADDY JACKSON

1/While the identity of the claimant was unknown to me I was reliably inform of her fathers profession ( by non denial confirmation ) -- her father's name was never given to me . 2-- I had also heard " spit roast" was rumoured ( the informant not that reliable and sure of his facts ) 3-- and that th...

Best could be defined as a “ to be former Ulster “ in so far as once the WRC ends so does his contract with Ulster

Re: PADDY JACKSON

I would expect about 10 turn out in protest at LI employing Paddy regardless -- in ignorance of the facts of the case . Because the alternative faced by the DPP was to charge the claimant ( daughter of a QC ) under section 5(2) of the Criminal Law ACT 1967 -- for wasting police time --6 months jail ...

Re: Ulster v Weegies

Pre season is not the time for do or die tackles -- the statistics show that it is the tackler who is more open to injury than the ball carrier. Ringrose has been missing tackles in every game for Ireland -- a coach should be happy if his player was in the position to make a tackle or shepherds the ...

Re: RWC warm up matches

Like most "set pieces " in the modern game they seem to occur less frequently than in the past -- gone are the days when RoG kept putting the ball deep and the opposition kicked it into touch -- most teams now have adopted to the AB run return and keep possession game. therefore there are fewer line...

Re: Are you an Ulsterman or a quislingFIRFUC'sfuckdog

A good attempt -- but as stated else where a 29 man run out over 80 minutes does'n't add up to a game -- it is basically opposed training and practice at penalty avoidance. One has TV coverage and the other is available on youtube both commentaries to be avoid if possible. If like me you haven't a s...

Re: Pre Season Friendlies 2019/20

Not too surprising to be honest with a pre-season friendly with a 29 player selection to take the field over 80 minutes kicking off at 1 30 about the same time as Ireland play the Welsh and ireland fielding a team from a squad minus Jackson or Olding and only includes 3 Ulster players and two are no...

Re: Brexit - now we see what it means.

The idea that an individual voter is important is something of an oxymoron in a democracy which believes in majority rule. It is similiar to the concept that a minority MUST be catered for in EVERY circumstance and some are more privileged than others based on WHAT they are rather than WHO they are ...

Re: RWC warm up matches

Addison was always an outside bet one game in six months doesn't really add up to a plane ticket --that said he got close but if the alternative is either of the Kearneys a donkey would make it. Rob makes on loyalty in my book and his nerves under the high ball -- he offers little in attack and his ...
