Thought the Gaelic was entertaining too. Great to see St Michael's Enniskillen claiming the title. :cheers:

Pee-more if you have the time to watch it it's fine; for those who don't; then skip it.

i assumed that many wouldn't have the time and when they entry the programme might not realise the rugby was included at the end.

The unfortunate thing about the final like many Methody finals it was a mismatch -- Methody were a much more mature team both physically and mentally at one point the commentary points out at one point Methody were a stone a man heavier and mostly in upper sixth . That fact makes the assessment of the individually players, especially the forwards, extremely difficult .

What i liked about the Methody out half and wings was their pace , their timing of the their passes and their willingness to support the player with the ball which identifies potential .

Shame about the result but the sun was out for a good bit and it was more entertaining than quite a few Ulster games I've been at this season (& last). One question arose we couldn't agree on - Are the steps on the West Terrace smaller than the steps on the East Terrace?

They won 22 out of 22. The Scottish Premier League is more competitive. At least Celtic lose occasionally.

I was at the game early doors and watched both packs going through their paces and I must say both sets of lads looked very much on an even par size wise. I think Campbell actually put in a good shift first half and it was only when MCB started putting width on the game and bringing the backs in that the dynamic changed. Good game from both sets of lads.

I would suggest that if at one point Methody were a stone a man heavier, the same was probably true at all points (of the match).

The same applies to them being upper sixth.

If indeed any of it was true.

Does anyone believe the quoted weights of any player, schools or club/provincial?

Which teams exaggerate the most?

I dunno.

One of the 'finishers' for Campbell would have tipped the scales back in their favour.

He'd certainly finished plenty of pies.

It's Campbell dear boy. They were "tortes".
