Re: Ulster in the Challenge Cup

Ford is only 28 so McPhillips may still have to bide his time.

Didn’t look out of his depth when he had that run of games with Ulster though.

Hope he starts against us and comes a close second.

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

After a game and a half, it’s 18 pens and a DG.

Thought French rugby was supposed to be an easy watch!

Re: Rainbow Cup

The Pro 14 need to think outside the box here. Maybe we could play them online at darts or chess? As things stand, we’ve got two weekends off before the semis and then trips to Munster and Leinster before a possible final. Do the guys really need to be playing after that anyway? Even the money argu...

Yellows possibly clouded the issue in the first half.
While we didn't take advantage at the time, I think the physical effort for saints from that period told in the end.
I dunno. Three of them got a ten minute breather and eight of them got subbed off.

Re: Saints v Ulster QF Saturday 8pm KO BT Sport 2

Bench did well. Herring and Jordi stood up. Discipline decent.

Yellows possibly clouded the issue in the first half.

Considering the pack is missing a fair few caps in Hendy, Marcel, Carter and McGrath, it was a good effort.

Is O'Flaherty irish qualified?
Attempts to piece his family tree together have failed apparently. His dad’s family hail from the Caribbean.

Why have Leinster stopped using the pre-binding three man latch? Worked so well...
Rum emailed World Rugby and the refs have now clamped down on it.

Sounds like a reasonable claim to me.

They’d lost 12 in a row at Christmas, of course.

Re: Saints v Ulster QF Saturday 8pm KO BT Sport 2

The reality is of course that it won’t make a great deal, if any, difference but it’s a welcome distraction and an opportunity for some kids to get their bake photographed next to the cup which can’t be a bad thing.

Still a few games to win yet though.
