Re: Before the Castres game.

Sounds like a plan - has anyone told the Catres supporters? Je travaille sur le... Or something. J'ai une account sur their forum, si c'est aider (maybe best to get a francofile to do the actual wording though ;) ) Have a tame frog who'll do just that for me. It's tricky enough unless you have a bi...

Re: Elwood

Maybe Declan Kidney will be available come May? :stir: It will be an interesting competition when Kidney 'becomes available' (nice euphemism :D I'm sure his agent will take note) between him and EOS as to who is the most unemployable :D Of course maybe his many cheerleaders in Munster will put thei...

Re: Match entertainment

match entertainment is.... the match, no?? :scratch: it's always escaped me who the honchos believe need to be 'entertained' before and at HT.. HT is the perfect length for a bog break, and time to grab another scoop, and maybe leaf through the programme. I'm more than happy having some sprogs playi...

Re: Munster 2012/13

While greatly complimented, I feel I must point out to both DL and Rooster that they are vastly overestimating my role at Munster rugby. well I would never have put it so bluntly :) but as I said As it happens I don't think this actually is the case - the problem is that the squad simply isn't as g...

Re: rugby shirt request

Anyone on here any good at embroidery? Yep - Have Embroidery Machine - happy to add 'NS' under Ulster Rugby Logo to any Ulster Rugby shirt FOC. Can do it while you wait, we are based in Coleraine - I'm sure any local embroidery shop could do (2 min job). :salut: nice gesture, assuming you stock the...

Re: Ulster v Connacht

In all honesty, anything less than 5 points will be a disappointment for me. I know what you mean, but there is no greater guarantor of undeprerformance than complacency.. Connacht: .R Henshaw; T O'Halloran, E Griffin, D McSharry, F Vainikolo; D Parks, K Marmion; B Wilkinson, A Flavin, R Loughney; ...

Re: Munster 2012/13

I would have thought early season raid on the O's was a good match to pick up points on as they are a bit like the ladies in that they are brad pitt at the start if the season If all Munster were interested in was maximising the points return from the 22 league games this season they'd send out 15 ...

Re: The Anscombe Plan Starting to Unfold

And another thing - it's not all Anscombe, our defence has been smashing again this year, following on from the second half of that year, so Jonny Bell take a bow.. Nobody has ever won a thing without a rock-solid defence - and we have leaked fewer tries than anybody else in the league (4, while Sca...

Re: Top of the league + a game in hand?

Understandable, been getting exactly the same thoughts. December mind you will be a hell of a month & we will know a lot more about our resurgence then. For me the biggest game is Leinster, even if they send up a weakened team & its the Rabo rather than the HC, they are the team above all we strugg...

Re: The Anscombe Plan Starting to Unfold

There's a clear plan (as highlighted by BBC Wales) involving Williams where he draws 2-3 tacklers leaving space for the other players outside him. Watched the ITM Cup on Sky on Saturday morning and saw the same thing happening, albeit to a lesser effect. Maybe all we needed to click was a NZ style ...

Re: Munster 2012/13

The only reason ROG could be getting picked ahead of Keatley is to keep him happy and surely that is a bad start to a new coach's tenure? Another reason would be if Penney is under orders from Kidney. you'd wonder - I don't think there's a coach alive who would be going into the Leinster match with...
