Re: The run in

Players and coaches (and refs to a certain extent) are human. They make mistakes. They don't always perform to 100% capacity, or even near to it. Paddy missed an easy pen against Munster. He earns us points by slotting over far harder ones. Was Edinburgh such a bad selection by Les? Which great play...

Re: The run in

That's a fairly simplistic view when success and failure are determined by such fine margins. You're lucky you've seemingly never followed a truly tom kite team. Our record so far this season is rather similar to last year's champions of Europe and, lest we forget, we turned over the teams currently...

Re: The run in

We've got more BPs than Munster or Scarlets.

It's not the right time for a post-mortem anyway but the real villain of this season could well prove to be Mitrea.

Re: Team against Dragons

Yeah I liked the clubhouse Neill.

I went to see County play Oxford the day after an Ulster match (shortly before I saw the light) - there were a few Ulster fans there.

Re: Belfast restaurants

Well we wouldn't be rude but we may have been the sleepy one. Early flight over after a long week...!

Re: Team against Dragons

Well, yes although it doesn't have the sheer decrepitness of the Vetch Field nor the menace of Ninian Park.

Re: Team against Dragons

Delighted with the team, wasn't expecting much back from the 6N as per other posts in the thread. First visit to Dave Parade so hopefully a decent show. @UlsterNo9 - interesting call on Edinburgh, I struggle to see it but hope you're right. Scaaaalets have quite a kind run-in - we'll need a favour ...

Re: Injury Update

That's a huge relief.

What are you waiting for? Snap up those season tickets to see our Saffer beasts in action next term!

Re: Northern Ireland House Prices

We could have had a 3 or 4 bedroomed house on the railway track side of the Lisburn Road for tens of thousands less than the flat we got up the street opposite. We were after a holiday home and not an investment as such though. I've been a landlord and didn't much like it. I'd say spend your hard e...

Re: RBS 6 Nations 2017

That should have been a championship winning match. The smart money was on Ireland losing the first game and then winning the title and would have been if not for Henshaw. Am just glad i didn't put my money were my mouth was.

Goodness knows about the Lions.

Re: Injury Update

Starting to read like Bakebook on here. If every player was hauled off the park after they took a knock, it'd be time to get some bigger benches. It's not unusual for these lads to get through a game and then need fixing eg Ruan on NYE. Unfortunately (and remember Gazza in the FA Cup Final against F...

Re: Injury Update

I (very briefly) tried to play on when I broke my fib playing footy. I then limped to the touchline and hung around for 25 minutes until half time when I was asked if I was OK to come back on. I declined on the basis that my leg was still broken and managed to persuade a teammate to drive me to hosp...
