The last round in this Years Six nations comes to a head. Ireland, England & Wales are drawn so far but can Ireland pull it out of the bag to retain the Six Nations championship??? Find out this Saturday 21st March from 2.30pm in The George Bar.. Oh! and there’s Free Pizza.
Ireland faced Scotland off the back of a whipping from her old master.
Ballerina-footed Ollie Campbell and the greased ferret like elusiveness of Colin Patterson lead the charge, backed by southern musclemen, Donal Spring and first-time in green try scorer Moss Keane.
Niall Kiely wrote in the following Monday’s Irish Times:
Our resident Scotsman in a busy restaurant came from Troon, and named, inevitably one-felt, Brown. He had found problems to transcend the day’s woes, one of which led him to beseech every woman present for a needle and thread – a terrace scrimmage had seen him split his only pair of trousers – yet further tragedy stalked in that he had belatedly discovered that Galway , where he wanted to visit an old flame, was not a suburb of Dublin.
Some of you think England are the next best side in the 6 Nations Championship after Ireland.
Some of you would even like to see England’s Mike Brown in green.
Alan Quinlan, commenting on the Ulster Bank rugby survey said:
Once again the Ulster Bank Rugby Survey has thrown up some very interesting results from fans across the country. Most interestingly for me is our backing of England in this year’s World Cup but no doubt that will be forgotten during this weekend’s contest
