Re: Welsh welching on the Pro14 again?

A British and Irish league would make economic sense. It would also make more sense for the Italian clubs to hook up with the French leagues.

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

From a Northern prospective the "Church" would not be seen now as "the Monster in the bed " justifying the claim of a "Protestant Parliament for a Protestant People " -- The "Unionist" population ,as I believe most of the population of NI would vote for the Union on an economic basis rather than re...

Re: Mexico Vs Ulster KO 5.45pm BT Sport 3

This rip was ruled a knock on by Poite. The resulting scrum produced a penalty which Byrne kicked for 3 points. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190401/9a77fd2953739396e699a32554c93af8.gif To me, that looks like the ball goes forward, then bounces back. I don't know the rules well enough to know ...

Re: Mexico Vs Ulster KO 5.45pm BT Sport 3

Losing hurts more when it’s close. Let’s hope that some of those who came for the day out yesterday will start being regulars at Ravenhill. You get the feeling that with the age profile of the squad, and the performances that we’re now starting to see, that something really good is just around the ...

Sport, IMHO, should be something which requires a modicum of athletic activity. I'll reluctantly give you darts, but if you start putting in board games, where does that stop? Is draughts a sport? Tiddlywinks? :banghead:

Re: NORN IRON

Nobody likes a tell-tale. I understand there were Ulster fans singing in the Red Panda on Saturday night but I would not go so far as to name them. Speaking of singing, there is a very strange story in the BT online this evening relating, loosely, to football and Tiffany’s classic number 1 single. ...

Re: NORN IRON

I've been threatened in Rotherham, chased down the street In Cambridge, had bottles thrown at me (well, in my general direction) in Coventry. And that's just the away games. The home games were just as terrifying when the likes of Cardiff, Crystal Palace, Millwall and Plymouth came to town. ... Rot...

Re: NORN IRON

On the plus side, you can still go to a rugby match, stand wherever you want in the ground, and not get your head kicked in. You also don't have to put up with seeing your favourite player being thumped by a fan. Slainte :thumleft: It's hard to beat a good generalisation, ain't it? I have been to m...

Re: NORN IRON

Good start to Euro 2020 last night. Norn Iron 2 Estonia 0 . And it just goes to show that you don't want to be winning at half time ( 0 - 0 ). Some fans gurning about the atmosphere but way better than Ravenhill in my opinion. Found the £5 charge for a small bottle of magners a bit steep. And traff...

Re: Six Nations 18/19

It was a horror show. All 15 were useless, backrow and half backs beaten up. I had predicted a good defeat but not a hiding. Schmidt was top of world three months ago with not just a GS from last year but the ABs' scalp.What a funny old world. He now has to find a way back but he has time. He may n...

Re: Brexit - now we see what it means.

So I see the UK Parliament has voted in favour of requesting the EU to extend the A50 timeframe. Hardly a surprise but I'm not sure what they expect more time to do for them as the politicians don't seem to be able to agree on what they actually want. If her deal passes on Tuesday, the request will...
