Agreed & they will (more than likely) face Ulster in a play off & I fancy Ulster there.

Just realised, I wasn’t too far off with my prediction, the WRU have been reading SF again and have tried to
pre-empt me and discredit me by announcing his new team just 3 days before judgement day, the gits.
Anyway I’m sure that they will probably parade him around the principality stadium on Saturday, like some kind of prized turkey.

And I believe that the game will be at the Kingspan.

Ulster have improved significantly over the last few games, and are on a 3/4 match winning run.

The single play-off Match will be played at the home venue of the European Club that (as between the two participating Clubs) has the most League Points at the end of the League Stage. If level on points the normal deciding criteria will apply: Points Difference, Tries Scored, Try Difference, etc

Edit: It will be either Edinburgh or Ulster away....

After North's alleged recent refusal to play. I'm tempted to be naughty and ask Osprey's fans who will play on the wing for them next season now that Hassler is rumoured to be leaving ?

Great player to have for them. One thing I know. If he has another concussion I think he’ll be advised to give up rugby.

Hope it goes well for him (apart from games v us! ) .Seems to have lost his way and rather dithery about his career decisions. Will a new coffee bar be opening in the Liberty I wonder?! Wink

It’s that view from the rooftops that is so clear and objective.

Good reading of the tea leaves.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

I’m not sure George has quite the consistency to be compared to someone renowned for delivering top class performances week in week out, season after season.

I just hope for George's sake that he gets an injury free run next season and get back to enjoying his rugby. He is without doubt an incredible talent who we have only been able to enjoy in all too fleeting glimpses. A fit firing and happy North will do our World Cup chances a lot of good.
