What a mess, you can see it already. They should put it off until the summer and not fudge with the NTHCSBH

Someone high up in the Norn Iron vaccine programme said today on BBC Radio Ulster that she expects ALL adults in NI to get the vaccine by the start of summer!!

Sounds to good to be true

If we consider the start of the Summer as the first week of June, that would require around 75,000 vaccinations a week, every week, between now and then. As of yesterday it was 91,000 vaccinated after five weeks. Extremely optimistic.

I suspect 2021 is largely a write off big event wise.
For anything like Music festivals, you'd suspect it'd be way too late in the cycle to organise stuff like that, even if summer was possible.

Isnt the issue supply? With three approved vaccines there is now more supply, certainly that is the case in the rest if the UK.

Not saying it's not possible but the logistics issues go a long way beyond just supply. Same down here, we've a target of 700,000 vaccinated by the end of March and we have 35k+ already done; it's possible but I'd be inclined to think 500,000 would be doing well. I'm a natural pessimist though.

Given Moxham has featured fairly consistently over the past month I would expect him to be in the academy. Big guy for a 19 year old back 3 player.

He’s really a centre I’m told , played most of his rugby there. Just being used on the wing at the moment because that’s where Ulster needed cover .

No rugby this weekend sucks balls. However, any chance the extra week will allow ringtone and furlong a chance to make the squad?

If ringrose doesn't make it, would like to see a sexton frawley henshaw midfield with h Byrne benching

We’ve Hayden Hyde who looked a promising athletic centre for the 20s last season and Curtis who has played several times for ulster prior to bucking up his knee. If he has any pace he should stay on the wing a la Ian Whittrn when he moved to Exeter

Apart from 10. There is still a massive Paddy Jackson/Stuart losing hole there. No 10’s coming through to the best of my knowledge. James Humphreys is there, but not sure how talented he is.

As a Wexfordman, I’m happy to confirm that we do indeed have lattes. Only in the civilised parts of the county, though. They recently tried introducing coffee to the savages of Bunclody and New Ross, but the Bewleys rep was burned at the stake for sorcery. And the poor Enniscorthians haven’t had any drinkable water since the 2018 cholera outbreak.
