Re: PADDY JACKSON

Problem with kicking -- if one kick goes wrong -- you start to over compensate and tend to forget the basics , thus the first miss creates the second -- sometimes its best to let someone else take the third -- before you attempt the fourth . ( and or decline the kick and go for touch )

Re: Heineken Cup 2021/22 Other Sides

For a professional rugby side the quality of pass was poor to many at head height or nearly behind the shoulder bad passes lead to injuries . D4 your success is has always been based on the quality of your back row and the power of the front five and the fact that there are on the bench forwards who...

Re: Heineken Cup 2021/22 Other Sides

Big -al You missed the point Leinster a side coached by a former player who edged the laws at every ruck -maul and line out live a life of card free rugby -- now Ulster are not Saints -- but referees definitely have not just one look at an incident in slow motion but have an endless desire to raise ...

Difference between Ulster and Leinster

Leinster late Tackle ( interference with chaser including trip ) no foul play --go to the line out

Re: Positions - how do you decide?

It depends on which side of the body is strongest which arm and which leg .

Whether you left or right handed --some people very few the difference in strength is little and they can play either side .

Re: Vote early, vote often.

On current voting trends the current format of Executive is a hindrance -- a return to majority party executive but all action etc requiring a 66% approval of MLA . The pretence that Stormont or Government can affect the standard of living in current situation is an illusion . Stormont is a like a c...

Re: Heineken Cup 2021/22 Other Sides

Lamour like many speedy young players shine brightly for a while -- start to put on body weight -- get injured and the initial speed that once they had lessens -- the gaps that can be safely exploited become fewer -- and unlike forwards -- back three players find that it is speed that counts not exp...

Re: drop goals

Personally I would be in favour of the removal of the place kick (penalty + conversion ) thus to score you would have to drop kick . It would speed the game up considerably -- no more waiting for the Tee to come on -- no more watching kickers routine eyeing the posts-- eyeing the ball -swing arms --...

How much of that is down to Paddy and...
