Is Jude any relation to the belfast model Postletwaite of early 60s in a famously capable schools cup side in their day? Maybe went into CI?

Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

I am not particularly political in any way but this signing worries me. I do not think that professional players should openly display any political beliefs when representing a club. This guy knew what he was doing and the reaction he would get when he chose to wear his shinner boots. Yet Ulster Ru...

Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

So Shinner Boots takes the Queens Shilling. He's o.k. as a bench player but it will derail Curtis and Johnston, I don't think Lowry will make it -sadly. He simply isn't robust enough. Ulster would have been better trying to entice Callum Sheedy. A superior player.

Re: Benetton v Ulster Sat 29/2 @ 15:00 GMT

I'm hearing several fans still traveled to Venice despite the Ulster game being called off and several fans again traveled to Rome for the weekend despite the Ireland game also being canceled. I'm not going to get on my high horse and advise whether you should have went or not, but if you have and ...

Re: Ulster v Bath

Brett Herron had a very good game for Quins. As has Niall Saunders when he came on. Herron got a lot of flak on here but I always thought that I could see the talent there. Was in the Championship Dream Team last season. I thought at the time that he was a sufferer of premature ejection....... :che...

Re: ASM Clermont Auvergne Vs Ulster Sat 11th Jan @ 1.00pm BT Sport 3

Quins could I suppose beat Clermont and leave aulster topping the group BUT..... Even with 5 pts to reach 22 it is unlikely we would overhaul Toulouse or Exeter, given they would have to lose with no points at home to Gloucester and La Rochelle respectively. Our "best" hope then would be a huge win...

Re: #boibegin

Brian is correct. I binned our accounts with the B.o.I. after 40 years, changed from Vodaphone and now drink local brewery ales instead of Guinness. None of that really harms the forkers but it makes me feel a tiny bit better. I now live in another country so trips home are difficult but if I am hom...

Re: Bath v Ulster

1. It's now an IRFU franchise in Belfast rather than anything like a recognisable provincial side. Far too few local players in the team (anything less than 10 in the XV and I won't watch). 2. The treatment of Ruan Pienaar. 3. The ostracism of Jackson and Olding. 4. The crass commercialisation of g...

Hume out for 4 months after his surgery. Ludik undergoing RTPP and Addison has a shoulder injury and is being monitored during the week.
Sadly it would be bigger news if Addison was fit.
Addison has had more injuries than Evel Knievel.
Addison appears to be made of candyfloss.

Re: Ulster v Cardiff Fri 25th October 7:35pm

WE will have access to a few more players who might make a difference in the backs but AS USUAL IT IS OUR PACK THAT IS UNDERWHELMING. Adding Moore, Herring, Henderson and Murphy is good but they are not goiung to uplift the other guys to new heights - sadly. EOS / McGrath Herring / McBurney Moore / ...
