Re: Random mutterings on attending the match

Haven't been in over 18months. Do they still have some DJ mispronouncing the opposition names? Do they still preach about 'Ulster Values'? Do they still pump in SUFTUM? Is there a Band? The whole experience used to be very organic, head down, meet your mates, cheer on the lads. Now it's feels very ...

FWIW everyone around me in the grandstand clapped when Quins scored.
Did you never get those seats in the away allocation swapped? ;)

Random mutterings on attending the match

Let me start by (re)introducing myself: I'm a 50+ year old male. I used to watch a lot of rugby. Went to Ravenhill as a kid. Attended the odd interpro after. Regular since the start of the European Cup. ST since the CL got its act together. I think it would be fair to say I was a prolific shìte talk...

Re: Time to move on

I was a bit surprised that my 'Reason for stopping playing' had to put down as 'Other'. There wasn't a 'because I was shîte' option.

I don't think there'd be any room. Perhaps someone should call room-service.

Re: November test matches

I agree with you on the issue of a penalty offence at the scrum, but I don't think Barnes is alone in doing that. I would suggest that most refs allow play to continue if the ball comes back quickly, irrespective of any offences occurring in the scrum. Indeed I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) tha...

Re: November test matches

The problem with scrum penalties is frequently it is difficult to correctly identify who is offending . Eg a front row may go down voluntarily or may be forced down by illegal means in such circumstances refs may make a wrong call — knowing that ,frequently no call is better than a wrong call. Sent...

Re: November test matches

You'll never agree with every decision by a ref and for me last night was no exception, but overall i thought my mate Barnsie had a decent game. Not questioning his decisions, more his style. If the kiwis can't see when a ball is out (or understand his interpretation of that) then that is their pro...

Re: November test matches

I enjoyed that game. Re Barnes - why is he telling the NZ team when the ball is out on the Irish side? For me it is an example of the way he coaches and lets infringements go. Another is the way he ignored infringements in the scrum provided the ball gets played. Why does he insist on addressing al...

For a reset - I agree. But a penalty offence should at least generate an advantage.
