Re: Pack for next season...

Time to drag this old thread out. What do we think of our pack for next season? Losing Rory aside, I think it will be stronger with the additions coming in. Jack McGrath is a good scrummager he rinsed Warwick and co a few times at Ravenspan. Hopefully Carter can improve that shambolic lineout. We c...

Re: Bill Johnston

While the wee man may be small - its not always the size of the dog in the fight. iHumph was notorious and virtually impossible to hide on the pitch - he wouldn't even try and make side on tackles never mind the head on stuff. One instance stands out to me in the Arms Park when he literally waved th...

Re: Bill Johnston

Lowry played at 10 in the game against Ospreys.

(Came off fairly late in the 2nd half after shipping one heavy collision too many).

Woeful decision.

Frank Murphy is ten times the referee.

If we had not had Coetzee fit for most of the year - I'm not sure if it would have been that much different from previous.

Re: Ulster 2018-2019 Postby cormac » May 4th, 2019, 12:24 pm Watching the Brumbies v Blues today, one of the commentators mentioned that Lealiifano was out of contract at the end of the season and had offers from the Brumbies, France, Japan and Ireland on the table. I'm guessing it's Ulster who hav...

Re: Ulster v Connacht, Sat May 4th 2019 17:35

The booing was an embarrassment. Ok he should've got a yellow but honest to God we're turning into Glasgow fans. It is f**king embarassing all right. At the initial decision, fine. After that, move the f**k on. [Apart from when it was that chunt Garces sending off Payne and possibly costing us the ...

Re: Ulster v Connacht, Sat May 4th 2019 17:35

What is required is actions that demonstrate that UR and thus the IRFU put their customer first and that is the paying public. I don’t see fairness in approach between the provinces and ultimately I have witnessed decisions that fundamentally affect the product on offer, and as a consumer I’m withi...

Re: Brexit - now we see what it means.

Well, if Bombardier Shorts is closed down - its all on the DUP for not taking the deal that would have left them tariff free in the single market.

Airbus would have snapped them up.

That said, as regular attender for 17 years and season ticket holder for past 12 years, I'll not darken the doors nor give another penny to the ># IRFU after their treatment of Paddy and Stu Fairplay.

Re: Ulster v Connacht, Sat May 4th 2019 17:35

Perhaps a Friday night game would have "allowed" a bigger attendance? I know fellow culchies might find Fridays a pain in the balls from getting into town from a travel point of view - but I find a Saturday game inevitably makes a real balls of your day. In winter, its using precious daylight and a...

Re: Ulster v Connacht, Sat May 4th 2019 17:35

Average attendances appear to be declining. 2016/17: 15,961 2017/18: 14,663 2018/19: 13,697 We probably need to look further back to put it into context. 10 years ago, what was the average gate? Then somewhere along the way it became the place to be seen - so there were a lot of bandwagon jumpers f...

No. You can't offer a public service and then select who you do business with. That would be discrimination.
If you said "no political parties", would that not mean you are not discriminating (as you are treating all the same?)
