Re: Are we a soft touch?

With due respect to the thread starter; Wasps are a team sixth in the Aviva Premiership, Northampton fourth. Wasps didn't even make the Heineken Cup this season. Saints are out of Europe entirely. Saints have had a fairly dismal recent disciplinary record. Wasps, I can't talk about. These really do...

Re: Ireland V Italy

I said on this forum last summer that the 60 nil defeat to NZ was a day of infamy for Irish rugby, which was promptly ignored by the Union. Our first defeat to Italy in 14 seasons of the 6N is similar. Even allowing for the injuries. Heads on a plate please. Drico cited this evening to rub salt in ...

Re: Long Memories

Just thinking about Neil's point in one of the threads today about questioning of a decision from 12 years ago. We are gas really as we do find it hard to forget things, especially the bad stuff, from years gone by. Sometimes we just get bogged down in this stuff and like to replay over and over al...

Re: Edinburgh v Ulster

The biggest impact on our season will be whether or not Best can get rid of his throwing yips. France aside, and they didn't even really challenge such was their fear of the Irish maul, his throwing has been poor since the Saints home game. I'd expect Borthwick to be hoping to cause us all sorts of...

Re: English are taller, really?

So Ireland suffer a season where we have a lot of injuries and this article in the indo was trying to explain why. One cause cited is our diminuitive stature. And the Irish are also slighter than our European counterparts. The average Irish male stands at 5'10" and weighs between 12 and 14 stone. T...

Re: Ireland V Italy

Re: Ireland V Italy

Well done the Azzuri, wel done Wayne Barnes ( a fair and consistent game all round)! From an Ulster perspective - Rory did well in the loose, Craig Gilroy did very well (defensively), - concerned about Luke Marshall's availability in the near future - why oh why did Small Paul did not get at least a...

Re: 6 Nations 2013

As long as Wales beat England I'll be more than happy. To me an English win and listening to them go on about it for years is a much happier thought than any Welsh win Where be your celtic solidarity?! How can you say that - especially at this time of year - our own Saint Patrick was a Welshman. I ...

Re: Ireland V Italy

Italy finished by far the stronger against Ingurland than we did We haven't played a 2nd 40 yet Going to get thumped this weekend I find it hard not to agree! If the Azzuri get points up in the first half we are stuffed - simples. WeeP might save us some embarrassment in the last 5 or 10 but I can'...

Re: Central Contracts

I note with interest that the reduction in central contracts and passing of wages on to the provinces comes at a time when Ulster are in a position now where they would expect to be carrying more centrally contracted players than ever COINCIDENCE? :stir: :stir: :stir: Maybe not a bad thing!

Re: Ireland team for 2015

Bowe for Cave at 13. Ryan for Henderson McGrath for Heaney (not convinced Heaney is international standard) Sherry/Varley for bench hooker, Cronin to start D.Kearney to displace Olding, and on that note, people ought not to get carried away. Olding has been very good but to tout him for an internat...
