Re: English Premiership 2019/20

I wonder if they will stay relegated for 2 seasons to avoid opening up their books for this season?

A team winning the Championship doesn't need to accept promotion, they can choose to stay down.

Re: English Premiership 2019/20

Apparently Championship teams need to demonstrate they have stayed within the EP salary cap for 2 seasons to be promoted...

How much did McCall know?

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

There is no debate that “We send the EU £350 million a week” was a lie.

Were you fooled by it Rum?

My usual source of tickets for this game hasn't come through and I missed the news about the public sale last week.

Travel and accommodation booked, just need one ticket!

If you know of one going for sale, please send me a private message,

Re: Wasps Vs Ulster Sun 21/01/18 BT Sport

Well that was depressing. Horrible weather, half empty soulless stadium, an Ulster team that could only score if the opposition gave them the ball.

Looking on the bright side, the trains were all on time so my journey back home went well.

I bought a ticket in N29 as well.

Obviously before I saw that BR had bought a ticket there.

Re: Wasps v Ulster

Like any true bandwagon jumper, I was going to and see if Ulster had anything to play for before deciding to go to this game.

As fermain says, plenty of tickets available so any preferred location for Ulster fans?

Quins were rubbish, not sure their backs got a single line break all game. Their best chance to score came from the Ulster line out giving away possession which it did a number of times...
