Re: Ospreys v Ulster Sat Feb 15

FFS Rum its was a penalty, a dumb ass one at that, all day long. You cannot seriously argue that he went to ground to gather the ball when, having watched the replay several times, he clearly falls backwards on top the the Osprey then proceeds to turn and try to pick up the ball. Quite possibly the ...

Re: Rory Best Interview

Headlined on GMU this morning. Clearly someone in the BBC NI newsroom has an anti UR agenda. Its old news and certainly not the most pressing news story in Norn Iron today

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 .
