It would be underlined as well in BOD's notebook.
It can be underlined as much as he wants.

In 98/99 his team was in a certain competition and didn't win it, so he cannae be gurnin' about the team that did win it.

No team from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, or France have any right to downplay that competition and the English have very little if any right to do so either.
Sadly the days of people using proper English are went

The fact is Ulster had to play against the two best French sides and win no small feat for a team which was made up mostly of amateurs and part time professionals training in the morning and evening.

PLUS the management of the game was focused on Club rugby not on the intro pro side -- which was selected not long before by Club representatives and a part time coach over a few beers in a meeting room .
Within this carapace of skepticism there lives an optimist

Does an asterisk for 1999 not mean the buoys can wear two stars on their shirts, should do it just for the craic like??
