Re: Friday's rant

Blaming religion is lazy. Right now religion is copping the blame for what happened in Tuam and elsewhere. However scratch the surface a little. Who for example decided, in their wisdom, that women pledged to a celibate life were the ideal candidates to take in pregnant mothers and then basically t...

Re: Friday's rant

We have an increasing HIV issue in this country that has nothing to do with religion. Point being? Yes, but if they also stuck to the rule banning extra-marital sex, there wouldn't be the same problem. People can't pick and choose which rules to follow and which to ignore, and then blame the Church...

Re: Friday's rant

things would be just as bad without religion. Nonsense. When you indoctrinate children from a young age to blindly believe the kind of things that religions teach you're inevitably going to have a much more inhumane society than you otherwise would. I'm not saying religion is the only way that can ...

Didn't we do the exact same thing in the first test the last time we toured there? What will be interesting to see is whether England can back it up in the next game.

Re: Rabo pro 12 final 2014

I don't understand how everything wasn't snapped up straight away in the STH presale, but was in the public sale. I'd have thought everyone would have tried to get tickets immediately once the presale opened. It does make sense though; I mean if even a small subset of all STHs bought 4+ tickets in t...

Re: Time to go MOC

I've been fairly critical of our play this year but I grow more and more confident that our attack will bed down. Had our forwards not got mugged by Northampton we may not have been having this conversation. Toulon are a better team than us but in the actual match a couple of key moments went again...

Re: Rabo pro 12 final 2014

I was expecting everything to be gone within seconds like it usually is, or to start getting timeouts as soon as the sale started. Didn't have any issues though, surprisingly. Are there many tickets left?

Wow, just wow. Can we play Ulster every week please or, failing that, can they rent out their supporters to all our opposition in future? The atmosphere, from long before the start till well after the final whistle, was amazing - their supporters definitely bring out the best in ours. I can't remem...
