We'd obviously been lulling Bath into a false sense of security regarding our line-out.

For about the last three years.....!

Do we need Addison in the side at 13 or 15 though?

Re: Bath v Ulster

Also thought we got away with being offside a lot yesterday, not sure if we had great timing but certainly that was the way it looked. Kicking duties I would take away from Cooney when we have better options on the pitch, could have cost us. 21 out of 23 in the Pro 14. It’s not too shabby, is it? T...

Re: Bath v Ulster

Conney doesn't seem to dwell on the odd bad miss which is a plus.

Re: In Defence of Schmidt, Ireland's RWC and where to now?

Amazing story about Jamie Heaslip. In his book he claims he failed a drugs test after a Churchill Cup match. He has today denied it! If he did in fact fail a test was this information ever in the public domain? Since we have such lily white sponsors in Guinness and BOI, I wondwr what tbeir thoughts...

Only the Welsh would organise a game v the Barbarians which clashes with a full round of Pro 14 game.

Ulster facing Scarlets that weekend.

The only thing worse is watching geriatic retired players playing a game.

Re: loyality to club or fame and fortune.

Difficult to expect loyalty in the pro game when club and country will invariably give little or none in return.

Like Merv and Rocky,, I could run with Carmel Hanna. I'm not so sure about Naomi. From what I hear from inner East Belfast, she has lost contact with her roots. Happy to be corrected.
Still ginger the last time I looked.
