    Just to get things straight, I’m a Hooker. I should say I was a Hooker really but the feeling never leaves you. So officially I’m a believer but I’m just bored of scrums.  Scotland Vs England on the weekend was admittedly a total horse tranquiliser of a game. I dozed off for about

Ferris starts, O'Connell making all the right noises, can they do it? Does it really matter? Will Gatland ever shut-up?

Ferris Included in Starting Line-Up  Sweet sweet music to my ears. Having listened to Gatland prattle on about closing roof’s and untrustworthy locks all week I have been proud to hear the legend of Deccie keeping it positive and brief. O’Connell pitched in with the following earlier: Structurally their attack goes out the window. Once they’ve

Attoub enlists Lee Byrne's legal team for appeal

Or at least he should. Lee Byrne’s appeal has gone remarkably well and on the most part, without enquiry as far as I can see. It seems to me that there has been a dramatic turn around on the behalf of the Independent Disciplinary Committee who less than a week ago told us: The independent

Ulster give Bath a pasting before they have even kicked off
