    I can see why you're suspicious, but at the same time Adams and co took it upon themselves to act as judge, jury and executioner - and that's not something that any other political leader is likely...

    It may not be fair, but it's hard not to see some overlaps with this case and the conviction of his own brother for child rape. It seems clear that some people were to be shot, and some not, with...

    Our loose play in the pack has improved, but we were regularly extracting penalties and penalty tries from opposition scrums last season. That edge has gone.


    The key this week is consistency....

    Midfield ****ing dreadful. Conway all over the place in his defensive positioning. Felix phoning it in. Worst 40 minutes I can remember from a munster three quarter line in Europe.

    I think it's an interesting analysis. My, slightly less scientific, one still holds that we'll beat the piss out of their pack if we get out of the blocks properly.

    Sale v Munster October 18th - Team Named #315

    Big if as regards Sale though. Leinster have a better pack than them and didn't stop our tight drives. Neither did Scarlets.

    The contested kicking is predictable, but it's also very hard to...

    Might see a few of you in Walkabout tomorrow night. I'll be the man with the guitar feeling more sober than normal come 9pm!

    I think naming it after Paul Darbyshire would be a nice gesture. As would naming it for Conrad O'Sullivan, for a Cork connection.

    I think there's a bit of an illusory dichotomy being presented here. Even if regulators failed to stop the financial services sector from bankrupting the country, it remains the fact that it was the...

    My opinions of the virtues or otherwise of capitalism are irrelevant, as are yours. It is a well established and clearly defined political and economic concept, and your use of it is inaccurate.

    I don't see any justification for differential entitlements for tax payers based on whether they are self employed or not. It's a pretty unusual state of affairs I think.

    Thatcher maintained a 60% top rate of income tax for 9 of her 11 years of government. Right old Trot she was.
