Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

It would be wise to assist the Mexicans in providing some additional vaccines. There is no point hogging surplus doses (if it comes to that) whilst new variants begin to develop in other countries. Particularly our neighbours and kin downstairs. I thought Brussels had told them that they couldn't a...

Sorry, brain-dead. I was thinking of Bloodlands - shows how much telly box I watch.

Re: Autumn Nations Cup aka 8 Nations

When was the last time an Irish team took the field with no Ulsterman in the starting XV? When Billy came on it didn't take too long for them to break him.

Didn't Kyle MacColl replace Gareth Milasinovich. John Andrew had an outstanding game.

Re: Return of Supporters

Just announced on BBC that no supporters will be permitted at elite sports for the next 4 weeks. I wouldn't hold my breath on that time being extended.

Re: Cricket season

Good pub quiz question for the future - In which one day international did 3 Irish players score centuries.

Re: Coronavirus 2020 - What can I do?

As I was panic buying for armageddon in Sainsburys yesterday (toilet paper etc) I also bought my first ever 12 bottle box of Corona yesterday as it was reduced nicely by £2.50 to £10. That works out at 83.33p per bottle. Not bad. But will it get cheaper? Hope you remembered to get your bag of limes...

Re: TREVISO - SATURDAY 29 FEB 2020

The four times I've been (with my wife) we've not found much to honest. We normally go for a week or so and add another destination before or after. Bergamo, Modena, Trieste and Udine are possibilities but except for Modena need more than a day. I think the biggest problem will be where you will be ...

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

Possibly but they'll have their players back too. That's assuming the game can be squeezed in for later which looks like it might need us to lose to Toulouse first. The weekend of the last round of the 6 Nations is apparently favourite, although why another two weeks is going to make much differenc...

BBC reporting Cooney going to miss out again. It reminds me of the old ad jingle - Murray mints, Murray mints the no need to hurry mints!

Re: U20s / Women's 6N 2020

Could they not play some of these games outside Dublin? It was played in Cork, which last time I looked was a bit outside Dublin. Surely no-one can be suggesting any of these matches take place at Ravenhill! Just think of the problems the team would have crossing the border :fleg: And remember they...
