Re: Ulster v Weegies

So what have I missed?

Faddes is useless, based on his first 40 minutes in an Ulster shirt, playing in a pre season friendly, with a second string side and cannot tackle a fish supper having had 4/5 weeks to adjust to our defensive system.

Okay thanks all.

Re: Ruan Pienaar

Cheetahs with Ruan in the driving seat will give a good showing this year, tails up after winning the Currie Cup and like ourselves will not have suffered from losing players to the World Cup. I would love them to put in a showing, they are one of the South African sides that are very capable of fil...

Don't get too excited 29 man squad, will be many changes etc
With Marcus Rea playing thats probably best for the weegies, he's the reason they never bothered with upgrading to sliced bread in Glarryford.

Big hopes for this kid.

With Billy as captain, are we officially the billy boys :duck:

Heard a rumour that Toner wasn't included in the final squad because they couldn't get a big enough bed for him in Japan.
I heard he sleeps standing up.
Big Dev doesn't sleep, he just lays there in wait.

Re: Cameras in Ravenhill.

Camera regulations went out the window in most cases with the dawning of the mobile phone camera.

How do you police it when everyone in the stadium has a camera in their pocket.

Re: Welsh welching on the Pro14 again?

Any links to an article on this?

From a revenue point of view being in the same league as English clubs where the big TV audience is makes the future of Irish pro teams sustainable.

Re: AIL 2019/2020

Any publication on how much the deal is worth?

I remember talk of sponsors bank rolling AIL teams to the tune of 50k - 100k per year back in the 90's. Would the league and all clubs combined come close to that now?

I understand Donnelly Group are very supportive of Armagh Rooster?

It'll smash $3mil at this rate.

The shutdown of his gofundme page was great publicity for him and his case. If you're on his side of the fence it was only viewed as further persecution.

Will be interesting to see where the money goes if he wins compensation.

Big season for the following Zack McCall, Greg Jones, Clive Ross, Jonny Stewart and Angus Kernohan, could be the end of the road.

Ireland in a group with England, Fiji and Australia next year. Final was decent watch. As this competition is about development, who really cares? Do you think they would develop the same playing Cook Islands U20? The tougher the opposition the harder it is both physically and more so mentally. Thi...
