Re: Ulster v Queensland Reds

Kind of had to be something to mark the centenary but I’m not sure anyone thought about it in time to get a suitable fixture sorted out for September. I’ll probably go if only to see Les. We only got one other game in Feb so it’s not the worst time to give everyone half an hour. I’m not confident th...

Re: URC 2022/23 - Other Sides

Just watched the games after managing to avoid the results.

Enjoyable fare.

SP was tremendous for Glasgow.

Munster will be better with a decent 10 next year.

Re: Squad depth 2024/25

Quite simply, there aren’t enough decent props around, particularly in the restricted waters we’re permitted to fish in.

I see Balmain has just joined Saracens.

250 caps in the Prem didn’t prevent him from getting absolutely minced in the Challenge Cup Final by the Sharks.

Re: David Humphreys comments-promising.

Deegan and Penny have both played two or three hours more rugby than Conan this season. Maybe it’s Jack we should be getting when his contract is up in twelve months. Jacks turned down a move to Ulster, several times. I suppose he’d say it paid off but the perceptions about who is sitting in the st...

Re: Heineken Cup 2024/25

And if we got a Saffer team we’d get either Saints or Toulouse if Munster win the URC (see below). Safe to assume, I think, Leinster will get the fourth seeding if they are second in the URC but if they lose this weekend…?? The 4 seeds last season were the winners of the 3 leagues and the Champions...

Re: Heineken Cup 2024/25

Well it’s a sound argument but I’d still stick with the side who are most likely to get the four wins.

Haven’t been to Castres or Stade so I’d take them.

Saracens over here might add a bit of spice.

Re: URC 2022/23 - Other Sides

I see the URC bank 70% of the knock outs.

Anyone know how prize money in the league works? What do we get for finishing 6th?

Well they’re going to have to significantly up their supplies of Prosecco then, after the debacle we experienced last time.

Re: Petrie departs…..

Lots to like about Hugh. He’s on record as saying he doesn’t want the role on a permanent basis though. Prior to JP’s appointment, the job was visibly advertised and recruiters engaged. Are we trying to persuade Hugh to stay on or are we getting someone else lined up before commencing a sham process?
