Well Dublin anyway which ye are welcome to. Indeed ye can have Dublin, Louth, Meath, Longford, Carlow, Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon. We'll keep all the decent counties and move the capital to Cork.
Mate, you come from the biggest sh*t hole in Ireland, would you give it up.

Re Jack, excellent signing for Ulster and I think it will re-ignite his career, definitely plateaued at Leinster, I'm not sure how much of his falling behind Ed Byrne is down to that versus knowing he was already out the door. Dooley has also been a superb prospect but injury record has held him back, but if he rediscovers his form of old I think we'll be fine at loose head.

You've probably never been outside the pale, mate. Take a trip down to my beautiful banner county and then tell me again if it's a sh1thole, never mind the biggest one on the island.

You know we are heading in the right direction when Ulster start getting slagged off in the press. D'arcy the latest to have a pop today at our non producing academy.

Non-producing? Where did Stockdale, Baloucoune and Lowry come from?

Plus, even when players were rejected by the Leinster academy and subsequently developed in the Ulster Academy, Leinster get all the credit.

Two key scrum penalties in Saturdays game, the scrum after the McCloskey rip which gave Leinster 3 points and the scrum penalty in the corner after Stockdales slip which gave Leinster an out from their own line.

Hopefully McGrath can turn those pens around next season.

Totally agree 9, even after all these years the set pieces can still be critical and to me ultimately made the difference in the match. Anyone got an opinion on our hookers and which ones are the best scrummagers, would be interested to know?
