Bobbievee, I would love Ulster to go a whole season without losing a game. We can but dream.
The SPL - probably the only league that's less competitive than the Pro12. Winning it has the same kudos as winning Boat Race.

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

Only lived here for six months. Realised I hadn’t received a bill for rates and phoned up. Apparently, they aren’t ready yet. So the council doesn’t need two months income then??? They certainly do. Those bonfires and riots don't clean themselves up afterwards! You have your friendly Finance minist...

Re: A little bit of politics folks`

Unionism is in a bit of a low point currently, to me Donaldson is probably slightly more moderate so would have preferred him. Hopefully the UUP start to get their act together. The only personal achievement Steve Aitken could think of was giving Robin Swann the Health Sec job. :lol: Unionism is in...

I've seen him quoted as saying it's 4000 years old.
He's quite conservative, even by Creationist standards.

Some wishy washy liberals think it's nearly 10,000 years old. :lol:

Been a while since we've had anything in this thread. Edwin Poots - born to bore. DUP taking the UUP road to nowhere? I'm posting this with the expectation that Poots's election won't even come close to being interesting enough for anyone to respond to. :roll: Fourth item on the 6 o'clock national ...

Re: Rainbow Cup

Does feel like a different landscape now, Leinster have an enviable schools system and have two teams that could beat our firsts, and Munster don't appear to operate within any kind of financial constraints. I don't see us becoming even the second best team in Ireland any time soon, before consider...

Sinckler didn’t suggest there was anything “unfair” in his non selection and had the good grace to wish those picked all the best.He has missed out on what for players remains the biggest accolade in terms of selection and what he described as the best experience of his life in 2017......minus the ...

Excellent. There are 4 options for the place and year so I'm going with the Showgrounds 1976. It's a Newsletter "heritage" competition and while the locations are getable a couple of them are extremely difficult regarding the precise dates i.e a bloke painting a boat in front of Carrickfergus castle...
