Re: Cables

Bit of a lump in the throat reading through all these messages. Stanley was a true gentleman and I always enjoyed bumping into him at the URSC tent on a Friday night or a URSC event over the years.

Re: Wales V France: game over after 20 mins

you beat me to it wuzaflanker.........Wales had plenty of opportunities to win this game and should look at themselves rather than complaining about the referee, well at least Gatland and Davies. 4 missed kicks and butchered the drop goal attempts. There's no debate about the red card. Aye your ma h...

Re: Wales V France: game over after 20 mins

It was absolutely the right decision by Rolland. 'Tip tackles' as the SH call them were highlighted by Paddy O'Brien pre-tournament as something he and the IRB wanted to clamp down on. By the laws, Rolland had no option and good on him being prepared to take the tough decision and not kop out becaus...

Re: Ulster Rugby - driven into the ground

prom - 'new' stand (could they not have named it the Kyle or McBride stand??) has more than enough corporate facilities. New 'old' stand :scratch: should have facilities for the ordinary punter e.g bar running the length of the stand a la Stoop.

Re: Ulster Rugby - driven into the ground

MR do you think this is possible at Ravenhill for the long term or are you hoping like FB that the national stadium will be built? small point in the grand scheme of things, but I'm not in favour of national stadium and never have been.

Re: Munster win

agree with BartS and cables - on current form neither side likely to win before the 'show down' at Ravenhill (BP may or may not be picked up but essentially doesn't change much) - it will be winner takes all.
