Re: Ulster v Bath

He's been our best back three player this season, as things stand his place in our first XV should be fairly nailed on. I'm slightly suprised that nobody is talking about him with respect to the Ireland team, i think he's playing well enough and with Earls in such bad form and Kearney not in the sq...

Re: Munster 2019/20

I also remain unconvinced about Rory Scannell. Unconvinced? There isn't one part of his game that is convincing! He's not a heavy runner. He's not fleet footed. He's not a great passer. His kicking is too inconsistent to be good. Average in every facet of the game. I'm not sure de Allende is the an...

Re: Heineken Cup seeding.

So basically it boils down to (if I understand it correctly):

- If Clermont win, then we are away to either Exeter or Toulouse.
- If Clermont lose, then we are away to Racing.


Heres hoping Clermont win then! I'd much more fancy our chances in Sandy Park or Ernest Wallon than in Paris.

I wonder if those include finals and semis plus a couple of saturdays they hold double headers at Wembley which could seriously bend the average.
Says on the graph:

"Home attendances don't include any games played at national stadiums (e.g. Twickenham, Aviva or Principality)"

I don't even think that Jesus was very good at rugby.
You sure?

I thought he was a top notch 15 back in the day.

Sure when he ran in a try against Munster from under his own posts, did they not record it in folklore as "the parting of the red sea"...

Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

Belfast is no distance from Dublin in the grand scheme of things. The family* can easily jump in a car and come up the road to see them play, or the player can make a wee a visit down the road within a day with absolutely no bother. Living in Belfast is very comfortable with family roots in Dublin r...

Re: Ravenhill crowd/attendance

It does make it difficult to fill it up just before kick off though. I’m not sure what the solution is. TV camera on the opposite stand showing where the space is and put it on the appropriate big screen. Could easily have the big screen at memorial end show the camera pointing at the prom and the ...

Re: ULSTER MOTM vs Connacht

Baloucoune for me is also a natural defender and rarely misses a tackle.With pace to burn he is one for the present never mind the the future No substitute for raw pace, his acceleration is what really sets him apart. Genuinely scares his opposite man. Indeed. Without his speed - that disallowed tr...

Re: Leinster 19/20

Ah but Joe will bring in Rab Korney for the 6 nations.

Can't be playing guys that are in form and might win you a match - all about the folks that had 2 good games 7 years ago.

It's simple.
The FAI just rejoins the IFA 98 years after breaking away.
Problem solved.

While the IFA look competent in comparison to the FAI... lets not kid ourselves that in absolute terms that makes them good at what they do!

Re: Belfast Tele poll

I'm surprised Burns and Humphreys are so close. I'd give my right arm for an outhalf of Humphreys quality right now. Sorry nope. At least wee Billy isn't chicken. I'll never forget iHumph literally waving a Cardiff player through while signalling for a knock-on (that wasn't) instead of trying to ma...

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

So then it looks like a huge majority for the tories. That'll solve all the problems in the UK. Indeed the only positive thing is that the DUP will be most upset. Give Arlene a big bucket of red paint and tell her to start painting a border in the Irish Sea ... Ah, make sure its a heavy bucket of p...

Re: Ulster Vs Harlequins Sat 7th Dec @ 15.15 BT Sport

I wouldn't have thought we were even close to within a 1000 of capacity.

Crowd probably around 16,000 I'd have thought.
