Would have rather seen Alby going down instead of Wee Dave but if he has been producing in training well he deserves the reward!

Leinster 14 point favourites with Paddy Power, I suspect they will cover that. Very strong Leinster 23.

Spotted Dave leaving the ground yesterday. Well, he was mostly obscured by his steering wheel but I think it was him.

A feeling we'll get well hoked here with the usual Ulster capitulation at the RDS. Leinster don't lose two in a row at home (or away fs) They'll be well up for this one.

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

Of course they will be up for this one. They should be. It's an interpro.

But so should Ulster be up for it . . . like the Westies were last week.

I'm not saying we are gonna win, but we at least should not be you going there with the mInd set that we're beat before we start.

That really is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Sadly the days of people using proper English are went

There won't be a capitulation but the hoking may well occur. In reality we need to be facing leinster with next to zero players missing out through injury to compete from 1-23. Throw mcgrath, hendo, reidy, stockdale, alby, balacoune and Addison into the 23 and we can compete on an almost equal footing. The fine margins usually tell in rugby and we just don't have the SID yet but it is improving.

Pre-Brexit, South African and South Sea Island players classed as European under agreements with EU, Australia and New Zealand didn't. I am guessing these rules are still in place. The Kolpac Ruling.

Thanks Neil and apologies KOTH had completely forgotten about that agreement, will it change now I wonder post Brexit or will we be able to have something specific for UK/N.I or will we adopt that part of Euro legislation or will we need a ruling from Europe to class us as Europeans from now on?

No worries. It’s only really this season with alby,Faddes and carter that it’s been noticeable with Ulster.
