COVID Impact on Fixtures

Post by Neill_M » Sat Jan 09, 2021 3:46 pm

Multiple sources including Murray Kinsella reporting rounds 3 and 4 of Europe are postponed with a travel ban for elite French sport. Clearly 6N impact also.

Does mean Munster Leinster and Glasgow Edinburgh (P-P last night frozen pitch), could be played in next 2 weeks.

Null and void. It's a load of banker anyway.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

The whole season is tbh. The Eurotrash, the half ar$ed league, the Rainbow Warrior Cup and the endless series of internationals which all seem to be against Wales. The sooner 20/21 is put out of it's misery the better.

Agreed, no point winning any of these asterisks trophies. BOD will be underscoring his notebook.

All games off ?

I’m sitting on the fence at the minute. Heart says it’s a royally fcuked up season and everything is devalued so any trophy and every Cnut down south and elsewhere will say ‘Whatever!’ .....even though they had every chance to win it and didn’t just like 99.

Head says there’s a few trophies for the taking to break the duck regardless - great chance for Pro X and Bic Biro Challenge Cup - can’t see the rainbow cup being on. Any win will be positive and moral booster to push on from as I don’t see us winning either Pro 14/16 or Hieny any time soon tbh.

We won't win a competition with Leinster in it. I would say go all in for the Parker pen but it's looking like it might not happen. Would it be ok with BOD if we play on without the French, Italian, other European (mainland) teams?

I always prefer watching Ulster play, to not watching Ulster play, so, even if we treated all the remaining matches as friendlies, I'd be happy.

Could well see Munster v Leinster soon then, rather than during the 6N.

Not sure that’s good news for Ulster.

Indeed.

Trips to Limerick and Llanelli in successive weekends.
