handed themselvesin to South Wales Police
after this game stating that they had lost their identity
12 months ago when on a team bonding canoeing exercise
at The Best Brothers Adventure Centre, Portadown.
As well as losing their identity Ulster
appeared, in front of 8,000 witnesses, to lose their ability
to tackle and to pass the ball. "It appears",
said one shocked witness, "that Ulster have completely
forgotten that they used to have the best defence in the
Magners League. All they do now is overcrowd the midfield
and wave the opponents through on the outside. I wish
we could go back to the good old days of Mark McCall.
Last year we won two of these Heineken Cup matches. Those
were the days my friend, I thought they'd never end!"
With three of the FRU's panel of judges
forgetting to send their nominations in The FRU
Man of the Match goes to Tommy Bowe
who got the only vote.
Tommy is pictured
with Mrs Derg from the London Irish game this time last
year, but by all accounts he's forgotten about her already!

In The News.
great trip, another disappointing game.
Swansea is definitely one of the best set-ups for the
rugby enthusiast with friendly pubs and friendly locals.
Unfortunately every time we go there
it's full of Munsters but I suppose after six or seven
pints they're all right as well (besides they tend to
go to bed early)!
Big thanks to the Ospreys supporter who
gave us a lift in to Wind Street after the game. Hospitality
above and beyond, and much appreciated.
