They lost last weekend to BRA. Don't know definite score, but have been told it was around about 40-30.
You haven't seen me at my best yet. Let's be honest, you probably never will.

A number of Ulster schools players to return ( 4/5 I believe?) couple of centres a 10 and an 8. The first XV haven't played this year however the 2nd XV have had a few games with a couple of losses to Sullivan and BRAs 1st XV. I believe around 7 players in total set to return from representative stuff and injury etc. I would expect a fully fit MCB side to challenge for honours but the talk is all RBAI/ Campbell. Don't get to games as much due to work etc but from friends inside the school it sounds like a close run battle this year.

Full MCB squad trained/ played together on Monday in a game against Belfast Met and all concerned seemed happy with the first run out albeit only a 30 minute stint with the 2nd XV playing the second half. MCB have good pace in this squad and a good captain in number 8 Zac Jordan. As stated previously most chat is around RBAI etc this year and sources tell me Ballymena have a strong squad this year.Being underdogs this year could suit the MCB lads but time will tell. Ballymena away this weekend will be a great test so early in the season and should let both teams know what work is ahead of them. I hear that the Wallace squad is good this year but not as strong as the team that should have won this years schools cup. Sullivan I believe are in the same position with the 2014 cup final team being their best in recent years. Best of luck to all the teams as it's a long road to the final involving real graft in all weathers whilst trying to balance the academic side. Love to see MCB win though!

So MCB had 4 players missing through Ulster schools and 3 injured. Did they leave out the other 8 players to train and not play any games until 2nd week in October?

Don't really know Kingofthehill to be honest as I just got my info second hand whilst at Pirrie picking up my daughter from hockey :cheers: I do believe Monday was the first time the squad had a full run out. I would assume a number of players turning out in the defeats to Sullivan and BRA would also comprise the 1st XV set up as they have done every other year? It's s squad game and come schools cup selection MCB normally get it spot on :D with Nicky Wells at the helm you never rule MCB out, the schools cup is not decided on pre Xmas friendlies :cheers:
