Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

LAR might beat us tomorrow. But nothing they've shown would indicate they're a 'brilliant' team. This is the furthest they've ever been in Europe. They've beaten Edinburgh, Glos and Sale to get here. I'm usually very negative about big knockout games . But I'm confident about tomorrow I must say. T...

Re: Friday's rant

Hate's a bit strong, I enjoy slagging him though. Being serious, in the lineup of people speaking in the ads he does kind of stand out. Not just because he's a white, hetero, man and thus extremely far down the list of people likely to suffer serious abuse online , but because he spends so much of ...

Re: Friday's rant

Austin Healey as the face of an ad about online hate. Stop being such a little penis Austin if you don't want hate. Wow! A lot of hate right there. I like Austin, he's fun, he can take and give the banter. Always ragging on the fatties. He is also an excellent co comms. He's biased but so what, are...

Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

A thought occurs to me with this push to pronounce Pasifika names more accurately in Super Rugby; we should probably be pronouncing Levani Botia's surname as if there's an m before the b. I don't think I've heard anyone saying it as 'mBotia', but that's probably the correct way to pronounce it cons...

Re: Ulster Rugby - 2020-21 Season

Tigers played a different game in the second half, played to their strengths and put the pressure on and took their chances, this is mostly a new Tigers side, with a lot of youngsters coming through from our academy, the big difference with Borthwick is he is using them, plenty of squad rotation so...

Re: Ulster Rugby - 2020-21 Season

Ulster bossed the first 20mins so decisively I thought it was going to be a rout. But they just stopped playing. There is no belief in that team.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen R Osborne play a game bar once, what’s he like? Is he any better than HOS?
Started down in TP Christmas before last, played very well. We won of course.

Re: European Cup Semi-Final: Away to La Rochelle, Sunday 2nd of May 3pm

I've been a bit disappointed with the build up too. There's less sport on than usual for this time of year so you'd think it'd get more coverage. In particular, the rugby podcast Ive been listening to have largely eschewed it in favour of moot Lions selection debates and coverage of the Munster gam...
