Amazon Prime UK and Channel 4. Ireland's 3 group games are live on Channel 4 and RTE2.

No guarantee that Amazon Prime will get the rights in Ireland and other countries etc.

Hurray, we've got Amazon Prime! I was dreading BT Sport.

Mike Adamson is reffing England v the Barbarians.

Ticket holders are currently imploring Boris Johnson to keep his finger firmly on the pause button until after the game.

David Humphreys and Neil Doak join Georgia's coaching staff

GEORGIA HAVE ANNOUNCED the addition of former Ulster fly-half and Director of Operations David Humphreys to their coaching staff.

Humphreys has joined the staff as High Performance Consultant until the end of the Autumn Nations Cup, a new competition introduced in place of the traditional cross-hemisphere internationals.

David Humphreys’ last job was as Director of Rugby at Gloucester, which he left at the end of last season.

Another former Ulster player, Neil Doak, has been added as Backs and Attack Coach. Doak was Ulster’s Attack coach from 2008 to 2017, and has been working as Backs coach at Worcester since since 2018.

Former French international hooker Sebastian Bruno has been brought on board as the Forwards and Defence coach, and World Rugby High-Performance Advisor, Calvin Morriss has also been added to the staff. He served as Georgia’s Strength and Conditioning coach under at the 2015 World Cup, having worked with England four years earlier.

Georgia begin their Nations Cup campaign at Twickenham on 14 November, while they visit the Aviva Stadium to play Ireland on 29 November.
Good luck to both men

One silver lining to Hendo's red card. At least he won't get broken playing for Ireland. He's lost to us for the next few weeks but we should have a good chance of getting him back safe and sound.

The good news is that we will probably get Jacob back for Ulster matches now that Lowe is in the squad - along with Stu and Billy once they’ve finished holding tackle bags!!
Hope is not a strategy.

Wouldn’t mind a couple of players back for next week. Glasgow are likely to field a pretty decent side.

No John Cooney. Disgraceful. Feel really sorry for him but lets face it if he was a Leinster player he would have been a certainty.
Good to see Burns selected but to see Lowe wear a green shirt makes me cross as I personally find him very annoying as a player.
