Willie said that things could be very different later in the spring in the UK, that's true and it will affect him personally. At the same time saying that the UK is going to be improving it's then probably safe to assume that other countries will also be improving as lockdowns take effect and the vaccines are rolled out.
That is all well and good but he didn't say that now, did he? :roll:
Yes he did.
Show me where he said the bolded part.
I used this thing called my brain and made things called assumptions and inferences after he responded to a post on the u20 6N with a comment from the UK's Chief Medical Officer about the spring.

I didn't do the blanket assumption from several on here that Willie was doing "oh look Britain is great", because, well, I'm not a moron.

You can buy a latte in Wexford, can’t you?
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.
the new coffee shop in courtown has really caused a stir.
Courtown is such a kip, it is Ballymun with no sun. It used to be alot nicer in the 80s not as rough and used to have an ok beach now the beach is all rocks have to go up a fair bit. Some nice parts either side in Ballymoney and further up coast.

Earl, for starters we're well behind you guys. Secondly, he responded to a post about an international competition without referencing all the nations. It's a meaningless point that the UK might be in good shape. Hopefully everyone will be but reference all of their CMO's statements then, not just assume that because it's ok where you are that it'll be OK everywhere.

u20 from Sullivan, was playing for trinity earlier in the season. Has been mostly a 2nd row, but theres hope he might have a future at 6 as he is undersized for a pro lock.

He's a good player from what i've heard but I don't know if he is a future academy player. Be interested to see how he goes tomorrow at 6.

Deputy chief doctor in England told BBC radio today that he expects to see the UK in a very different place this spring.

Now genius, tell me where exactly Willie said what Earl said/implied.
The 6N is an international competition, not a UK one, so what difference does it make if the UK will be in "a very different place this spring"?

and then moved on to an implication based on Willie's statement.

You are the only one claiming Willie said something other than what he did.

As for your last question, it's not inconceivable, nor is it stupid, to suggest, as I am doing - not Willie or Earl, that for the sake of a year you could move the comp to the UK if it means having the competition, when 3 and a half of the countries taking part in it are from the UK

Watched a game mcmenamin played in, workrate was poor I thought. Always appeared next to a ruck when it was clearly won and never really done anything of not.

Apparently the Cormac fella is a quality athlete. Think he is a Leinster reject though???

He also played a good bit of 7s, for all whining about the Irish 7s here it has produced some decent players for 15s. The one area it really seems to help them is defensively, Keenan, Baloucoune, JOB all came through the 7s and they are all decent tacklers especially in the open field.

F**K OFF, WE’RE FULL.

Probably. The EU are stealing our ham sandwiches ffs, they’ll definitely shaft us with our phone networks.
No intention of going near the border, just had seen something somewhere else about roaming abroad limits in the EU.
Oh how I would laugh if the Gardai stopped all the lads coming over the border for GAA matches and took their sambos off them :lol:

Don’t know why shadow.
That’s why I asked the question
Why do you follow me around like a lapdog
Why do people find fault with willies points regardless of what he says
Some of the questions that philosophers will ponder over for decades to come no doubt

Typical Whingy. Attempt to stir the pot but when challenged fail to back it up. Stick to the personal insults, you're much better at it.

No, the mobile networks said they wouldn't charge for roaming post Brexit.
Regarding checkpoints for the bogball games, sounds like a good plan - turn them all back and stop them coming down :thumbup:
