my first visit and most likely my last to Belfast


pre game had a bit of craic with the majority of ulster fans.
during and after the game a small number of their supporters were disgraceful they way the acted.

booing bundee when he came off the page.
I never saw this in my life before at a Rugby match.
when they scored their winning try one of their supporters started to hitting me on the back of my head.
After the game we had to stop a ulster fan gloating at Finlay coming out of the dressing room.
he was shouting "better luck next time"
we asked him to go over and cheer his own team coming out of their dressing room.

i almost got into a fight in the chipper at the end of the night.
a guy came in and he rub my hair while i was eating and started singing stand up for the Ulster men.
I did, and he stopped singing.

majority of Ulster fans are brilliant. but there were so many bad moments that I witnessed yesterday which I have never experienced before at a Rugby match.


Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

I didn't think he did too much wrong he spilled one ball, that I can remember.
He took the ball up quite well a number of times in a game that Ulster defence had us well marshalled for the majority of the game, and not too many of our backs were allowed chances.


Absolutely right. Knocked on one ball but did everything that was asked of him in defence and attack otherwise. Unfounded criticism of individual players is extremely unfair. For what it's worth, we were bossed at the breakdown yesterday and that's where the game was won and lost.
