Re: Ulster v Gweilch

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) I could not go due to work commitments. Watched it on S4C (on mute to avoid getting covered in phlegm) when I got in. Perhaps a better showing by the forwards, particularly in the 2nd half. Diack carried well. Lineout functioned a bit better. Trimble always com...

Re: Positives And Negatives: Ulster V Cardiff

tom - that's rubbish and you're fooling yourself if you think otherwise. As others have said, we are too ready to blame a ref and not look at our performance. Okay, our performance aside. Are you going to tell me that Laulala wasn't offside for his interception? Had it been called, no interception ...

Re: Rory McIlroy

yep, pretty awesome performance it has to be said. Don't think Westwood could have done too much more. I've never been a fan of Woods - his on course behaviour has left a lot to be desired long long before his off course shenanigans came to light. And he was at it again yesterday, stomping off befor...

Re: Good Wins for all the Irish Provinces.

It's the quality of those numbers that counts.........replacing an international with an international.

Re: Positives And Negatives: Ulster V Cardiff

I was happy to advise the ref and the TJ when perhaps they were unable to see an infringement. 8) (as were many others in the vicinity........yourself included Captain)

However, I was also pretty scathing about Ulster's abject performance (again) and that that was the main reason for the loss.

Re: ERC QFs

second that S5 :salut:

Os played v well but butchered several gilt edged chances, even with a misfirng set piece.

Munster's self belief took them through, but they also took their chances very clinically.

Re: Good Wins for all the Irish Provinces.

don't let modesty get in the way cf - great win for you Westies and well deserved I thought. Can't see both Leinster and Munster winning in France in the SFs - although I seem to remember a Lansdowne final that was 'destined' to be an all-Irelnad affair before Perpignan and Stade Toulousain put a sp...

Re: Leinster v Clermont/

Agreed, fantastic game. I was very impressed with CA - excellent performance. Also, Leinster showed a lot of grit and determination in coming back into the game but as previous posters have said CA would have won comfortably if James had kicked his penalty goals or hadn't bottled the dropped goal at...
