just finished Guy Martins latest tome " We Need to Weaken the Mixture". I like the man, daft as a brush, honest and a grafter.

Re: Munster V Ulster Sat 29th Sept 7:15

Let's not forget the headline of the final score. At no time has a 64 7 defeat to another Irish province been acceptable . Notwithstanding the relative strength\ weakness of the teams and irrespective of the competence of the officials the result is almost the inevitable result of the 4 previous gam...

Re: Dan McFarland

I have not heard anything specifically related to a formal interim coaching arrangement. I have been told that Farrell has been to Ravers on 4 visits over the last few weeks , presumably pre tour to Oz, looking over the current squad. If either rumour of a temporary coach are true it would indicate ...

Re: And today, joining the underground .....

Whilst I have every sympathy for the family and friends of Dan Kneen, can we really call the death of a road racing motorcyclist a tragedy?

Re: Ulster V Ospreys SDC Qualification

In my view there was one very significant moment after the game. The entire squad including those retirees/leavers not playing gathered round in a circle and being spoken to by Rory.
