Agree on both points.

We need a chunk of time when we have our big names playing for us and not distracted by green. I mean that also in the sense not just that they could bed in with the new coaches, but that any hint of absence making them somehow fonder than some of the younger lads needs to be properly tested. Time to get down and dirty in league games...

Pretty shit matchup for whoever gets them
I imagine the only way to cut the wage bill is with voluntary pay cuts. Think they were trying to offload some players mid season but no one was interested.
The IRFU should have stepped in and offered to put Farrell up in Ulster, take Itoje to Munster and both Vunipolas to Connacht.
Would have been worth it to watch the Walrus explode.

:lol:

Wasnt Winnie as I vaguely knew one of the guys in their party and they weren’t from Lisburn but I felt like telling them to go to the bar. All night was taking trips to the bar, comparing Ravenhill to Windsor and some “casual” racism thrown in. Not a great game surrounded by plum :thumbdown:

Yeah, I think the 49ers are looking good this year, and it’s all very open with the Patriots out.

As long as the Chiefs lose, I can handle any other winner.

And SF have looked the best balanced team in my book.

The only downside of the Sarries publicity for Aliianz is that they got caught.

Yes.

BP win puts Glasgow out of reach.
Although Sarries can overtake them tomorrow with a win.

BP win for Sarries makes them 7th seed - avoiding Leinster and going to Exeter or Toulouse.
Non BP win and they get Leinster.
Interesting to see what they do now they've got nothing else to play for - could just coast the Premiership and go 100% at Europe.
Would love to see them knocked out tomorrow.
I'd quite like to seek an Exeter V Cheating Cunts QF

Exeter are the team that's lost most by their cheating, & I'd say the two sides would knock seven bells out of each other.

Normally I'd agree but when it comes to racist stuff, it requires a bit more than tut tutting under one's breath.

The fact they are relegated means they have no incentive at all to focus on the league.
Hope that racing win tomorrow cos they are surely just going to concentrate fully on Europe if they manage to get through

Even if they win the Heineken this year, they will not be in the competition next year. The championship is not a competing league so it's team's cannot compete in the Heineken.

That said, they can still look to win the Heineken. It'll allow them to add another asterix above their badge and ilegitimate trophy to their trophy cabinet.

That would be pretty sweet. I think its either Exeter, Toulouse or Leinster right? The cunits can get to 6th with a BP win over Racing.

The best thing to happen would be Racing to beat them. Their season over then and there would be lovely.

They can't get to 6th, Ulster are going to finish 6th.

If two teams are level on points, to decide the seedings does it go to points difference first or head-to-head?

You didn't state that initially though.

Anyway, probably best for him to crawl back to Windsor Park.

I know, apologies. Obviously had it been aimed at someone else it would have been a bit more than "casual", if you want to put it that way

Whether we'd any chance or not, you'd struggle to find many of us who thought we deserved to go further.

Not at the races this year. Well off the pace.

Paddy Power were offering a Racing win at 4.25 last night pre-announcement. Definitely worth a punt.
Racing need a win to get a home QF, and a potential home SF, so they have plenty of an incentive to hammer Sarries.

I’m all for creating a hostile environment but there is no doubt that the Ulster crowd can be embarrassing. And its always the pissed casual supporters that have the standard ‘the whole world is against us’ chip on their shoulders, not the genuine fans.
The state of them booing the decision not to award the Treadwell try :lol:
There must have been 3 forward passes and a knock on in that phase of play.

This Saracens carry on is f**king nuts. I'm surprised they haven't made some sort of legal challenge yet. The club has to be in serious trouble now, they'll come back up to the Premiership again easily I think but there has to be a player exodus and trust in them from basically everyone has to be gone.

Also read a suggestion you have to be salary cap compliant for the past 2 seasons in order to get promoted, which obviously they won't be at the end of next season even if they win the championship. Which would mean they couldn't be promoted.
