..and who would have thought it would end like this.

When does next season start?
When are fixtures announced?
Will it revert to Pro12?

Anymore questions?
2020/21 season apparently starts 1st weekend of October, it will be a Pro 12 with no South African sides. Don't know when the fixtures are announced.

It’s unclear to me what they think the benefits of ceasing top level sport would be.

Amongst a number of other things.

Location: second barrier up, at the half-way line ... or is the third?

Nor this. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-55349545

"No sporting events will be permitted at all - even at elite level - with people being urged only to leave their home for essential reasons"

Presumably means no training for the players as well as no home fixtures. Probably not allowed to travel for away fixtures either.

If so, it's entirely possible, probable even, that Ulster will have a 100% winning record in the Pro12 league going into February - who would have predicted that?

The ban on elite sport is finishes is until the 2nd Jan. Ulster are free to train/play after this.

Good spot - I hadn't picked up that minor detail. Thought it was for the full period.

What odds now on Ulster still having a 100% winning record in the league by February? :lol:
