Cover the K and they will work well.

It's the kings BTW. They have had to come straight from super rugby/currie cup and then cobble a team together for this. Hopefully they will be stronger next year.

Jean, if the Band come anywhere near the Mem Stand Herbst won't be the only one hunting bores. The old SLR (Black Widow) still packs a punch.

If our downward slide isn't stopped, people might be asking what Ulster bring to the league in a few years time.

Ahh yes I now see that each team benefited from 500,000 euros to help with the cost of travel etc and that Sky and Guinness wanted to explore the great SA market.. I worry however that they now realise what some may have already expected that these two franchises are poorly watched and may not widen the market as first anticipated...

I suspect the wider viewing figures in SA will be a more telling figure as without the market sponsors will move on elsewhere and no doubt the US will be high on the list of alternatives...

Apart from that I see two teams whose standard of play is an embarrassment to what I once thought of SA teams hell even the Hond and Diack might get a regular game for them..

There may be doubts over the profitability of the SA teams but you cannot question the quality of the Cheetahs. They are third in their conference with 41 points. They definitely add quality.

Thought ref and assistants were giving them a hard time yesterday, then again it was Welsh assistants in Wales

One decent attempt and two disasters in quick succession made it a rather dull moment, no build up that you get when kicking from the tee.

Band are still crap.
Thanks. And what method did UR use to force everyone to watch? Did they close the bars 10 minutes beforehand? Send a team of German shepherds into the food village? Arm eventsec with cattle prods to ensure those on the terrace paid attention?
I hope you included the ideas about dogs and cattle prods in your season ticket survey. Inducing fear and panic, and inflicting actual pain, would certainly be useful ways to liven up the crowd on a quiet night.

Perhaps the footage from the dogs being released into the food village could be shown on the big screens as part of the half time entertainment?

just send the band into the food village that would get everyone out. Might be a health and safety issue though as a stampede to the terraces might ensue.

I'm not sure about the German shepherds. A bunch of blokes called Hans, even with their crooks, don't sound that threatening. Better letting loose some big, vicious dogs .
I have a cunning plan...why not just leave things as they are but tell the Brexiteers that we have left the EU? After all they believe every lie that they were told by Boris and Nigel.

Just tell Rodders he gets to sample a freebie from every food vendor in Spanners and he’ll scare the crowds back onto the terracing. Watching him eat would be far scarier than some Nazi Alsatians.

That's just reminded me of Rodney the Torpedo on Friday night. It's the first time I've ever seen the ball carrier make a no arms tackle. Legendary moment.
