The school motto was in Greek a language older than Latin and life was I'm sure a little harder than either RBAI or Methody, as a boarder

And the only language I ever really mastered Was a non approved of Anglo-Saxon. Pure Tory

A question, to which I think i already know the answer ...

Would Chappell's bowl even raise an eyebrow in today's 'sporting' world?

Cricket isn't the worst to be fair. A bit of cheatin' no doubt but old school gentlemanly conduct frequently prevails. Kohli and Root are gents.

Interesting comparison: the aforesaid gentlemen are of a similar age and attainment in their sport. Kohli is worth an estimated $50 million. Root is worth an estimated $3 million. Pays to be Indian in cricket.

.....Top class Indian, Or a top class 20/20 specialist Merv.

So alas No eir sport for me - I’ve watched the highlights on the beeb.

I’m happy enough with the yellow for toner.
The Leinster centre head clash with Madigan was red all day long.
Warwicks was yellow - no way was that red in context of the other yellows....if so toner and the centre are off. Frankly it’s embarrassing Warwick has a 2 week ban for a secondary contact but effectively a headbutt to the face gets no sanction.

RBs 2nd try was absolutely fine....I’m pretty sure a dummy line is used to deceive a defence & that happened. Ruddock turned in early and engaged with McCloskey NOT the other way round, Ruddock fell for it. I can understand a Tmo asking to look at it, but it wasn’t blocking. The inconsistency of reffing ruined the game as a competition.

I am noticing a worrying trend of TMOs effectively applying pressure on refs to overturn decisions or dish out cards it’s almost a challenge to the refs authority / and doesn’t come across they are working as a team - I don’t like it. What I did like was the snippets of DMcF after the game long may he stay at Ulster - top class.

As decent as they are AOC & KT aren’t they aren’t going to give you the grunt required to beat a decent set piece team. With carters injury profile and IHs injuries/ire commitment we are a good 2nd row short hopefully young Cormac can develop but he is very very green and a few yrs off.

Lots of Exciting selection for dragons - I’m looking forward to seeing Moore. Clearly a player with so much talent his kicking game has been erratic at times but when that clicks it really gives UR an extra option in the centre.

The Ulster Locks are not as bad as everyone makes out to be honest

Funny thing about the scrums and the penalties awarded -- Leinster put twice -- wheel twice -- penalty to leinster twice

The thing is the team guilty of the wheel were leinster --- The wheel was achieved by boring and lifting by the leinster Tight head. the Bore being towards the Ulster Hooker as the leinster scrum shuffles back and towards the Leinster tight head. with the second breaking to appear as if pushing towards the Ulster goal line .

line a penalty is a better option than a harassed pass by a scrum half to out half .

leinster had the motive, the means and the man in the middle

The only team with a motive to disrupt the scrum in the modern game is the team putting the ball in , the ball goes in so crooked the other team have no chance of winning it and professional packs are to evenly matched in weight to enable a team to push the team awarded the scrum off the ball.

I think it's more to do with being a superstar in a sport in a country with 1 billion plus population and the advertising and merchandising revenue that generates.

The 3 wealthiest cricketers in the world are all Indian.

Certainly would!

Everyone would be questioning why he would deliberately bowl a no-ball! :shock: :scratch:

One less run required by the batting team and an extra delivery to face.

Have known one local captain telling his bowler to bowl (what would be) the last ball of the match deliberately wide to lose the match.

With the scores tied but plenty of overs and wickets in hand to score the one run required, and the facing batsman on 99, he preferred to lose by bowling a wide than allow his opponent to score a well deserved century.

Funnily enough when players' numbers were introduced soon after, said batsman was given the number 99 as a reminder of what that famous local club had done in an infamous act or poor sportsmanship.
Sadly the days of people using proper English are went
