Re: Cricket season

Or perhaps as you're no longer crouching over the bat for those daddy hundreds you've regained your normal upright stance and your hands are now 9" further away from your feet... ?

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

No confusion, I've been a 'Standup' member for a long time. I was wondering if this new 'togetherulster' membership had in fact replaced the 'Standup' membership. I hope not. Setanta, my apologies for forgetting that there is yet another UR membership... and thank you Mervyn for bringing it forward...

Is 'standup' membership only available for the new season?
If you're referring to the #TogetherUlster membership then all info here: https://www.ulsterrugby.com/2020/07/tog ... p-launched. (You might have got it confused with the URSC periodical which is called 'Stand Up' ?)

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

I would reckon capacity of 4.5k and number of ST that took up TU could be close to each other. Roughly 50% uptake, just gut feeling. URno 9, care to tell us a little more about your gut feeling about that 50% ? Particularly whether how many of those 50% of ST's holders both donated their 'unused' e...

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

If that figure is close, and I have no reason to doubt it, then there will be problems getting tickets even after paying the £65 so a URSC membership will not get you tickets? Only if there are more people who buy the #TU membership than the ground capacity..... I'd not be so cynical as to say the ...

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

I don't see how that's relevant. My logic above was used to assess the TU membership on its own merits. Yoda, your post outlines your logic for paying for the #TogetherUR membership very well and it's clearly not my place to dispute/criticise your rationale. The purpose of my questions were, in the...

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

I don't subscribe to premier sports but am likely for the next year if access to live rugby is reduced. I therefore took the view that £40 of the £65 is reducing my tv subscription - so I'm really only paying £25 for advanced access to tickets next year - if I only go to 5 games that's a premium of...

Re: STOP BRENNAN 2007-2027

This thread is a little like Newgrange, Beaghmore or Stonehenge.... not entirely sure why or when it was started, but it was a long time ago in days gone past.

Re: Tickets and seat allocations 20/21

What were you expecting though? Got mine. Well, looking at it on the UR website, you can get all these benefits plus access to international tickets from the Ulster Rugby Supporters Club for £12 per year..... if I had any expectations it would be that it might exceed that ? I'm not entirely sure wh...
