Re: UAFC First XV

Great craic!
With only 270 posts I am absolutely delighted to be even noticed and to be included with such illustrious posters.

Many thanks. My aim is now to be on the next list in 15 years time.

OK Ruan was possibly a better all round player but at the time Ulster needed an experienced leader to gel the pack I thought he played in the 2nd row, rather than the back row that wins matches? A bit like Willie john, ba...
