Re: Japan RWC

Really enjoyed the rugby yesterday. Fiji spirited as usual and gave Ozzie a scare. France were fantastic for 40 mins - best I have seen in a long time then horrendous in the second half and vice versa for Argentina Boks were very solid as you would expect. Very one-dimensional which may be a bit of ...

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 hundre...

Re: RWC warm up matches

Warm up matches is all they are. Expect Ireland to hit their stride just before the QFs. That said, the old confidence has taken more of a blow than anyone expected. Probably another defeat this weekend but then it's build for the RWC. All comes down to injuries. Full strength and Ireland can probab...

Re: Mexico 2018/19

I see Leo reckons all Glasgow Warriors fans are Rangers fans, so celtic fans should support Leinster:

Re: Glasgow v Ulster, Fri May 17, 19:35

Ulster really have an a remarkable season considering the last 18 months or so. I haven't been able to watch the side as much as previous seasons so what has went right? Coach, players or a combination of everything?

Wonder will this tool ever get sacked? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190410/9c5b1082427d86bdd3935fb4fd96aa4d.jpg I don't really think this is incitement of hatred. He's expressing his belief that he thinks a whole range of folk are off to visit the big scary red man with the fork. I think he's...

Re: Jack McGrath

Was Jack not getting enough gametime at Leinster? Fantastic signing. Seems to be more movement within Ireland of players than ever before. Any decent forwards from our academy coming through?

I though Henderson look the ball standing still quite a lot and didn't carry particularly effectively.

Re: Mexico Vs Ulster KO 5.45pm BT Sport 3

Not sure I've ever been so proud of an Ulster side. Gutted about the Stockdale mare and Cooney should have got his conversion but as people have said, after loosing the likes of Ruan et al, and the debacle with Olding and Jackson and the coaching fiasco and the ceo and the list goes on, to even reac...

Re: Mexico Vs Ulster KO 5.45pm BT Sport 3

All the best to those heading down to the game. Went to a few knock-out games in Dublin over the years Vs Leinster and they were all pretty miserable. I just hope we can take any chances that are on offer and give a good account of ourselves. Living in hope more than expectation but we do have playe...

Re: Six Nations 18/19

Discipline is key Vs Ireland. If you keep the penalty-count low then Ireland struggle to get any kind of field-position as there is not a lot of creativity there. England defused the aerial bombardment and had great line-speed and controlled aggression in the tackle. Smothered Ireland which is what ...

Re: Where’s Baggy????

Whilst he is super funny and in many ways is the soul of this forum, he routinely oversteps the mark and is a right d***head at times. I've no doubt he will be back. Slightly subdued for a while and then back to his antics until he gets another slap. I suspect he may currently be vacationing in NZ: ...

Re: Will he stay or will he go?

Whilst like Baggy I have little or no time for the IRFU, I do think and always have that Joe is indeed the second coming. His results and achievements speak for themselves. As an Ulster fan, I love the way he's stuck with Rory as captain. If Ireland stay clear of too many key injuries I think he has...

Re: The Complete Overreaction

Yeah, I'd say it was a bit of an over-reaction. Ireland have beaten NZ before - albeit once... But Ireland were building for this particular game and were at home. With home advantage, you should be beating pretty much anyone or at least be within one score. In saying that, I didn't think they would...
