    whilst title holders, Garryowen, will travel to Dublin to meet Lansdowne in

    Commenting on the results of the AIB Cup draw Der Healy, President of the
    IRFU, said: "I eagerly look forward to the upcoming AIB Cup and AIB Junior
    Cup All-Ireland competitions and the wonderful fare I know they will again
    engender this season. These additions to our rugby calendar have proved to
    be very popular across all the provinces; more so now that we have extended
    the Senior Cup to include all 48 clubs. The welfare of the game at club
    level is uppermost in my list of priorities for Irish rugby and as
    President; I want to express my thanks on behalf of the IRFU to AIB's
    sponsorship as part of their Supporting Clubs – Supporting Communities
    campaign."

    At the risk of seeming pedantic, that is the AIB Cup draw. The AIB League was announced a few weeks ago. Details on www.irishrugby.ie

      Right thanks, my fault, I have corrected it.

      This is a new section and I am a bit rusty for what concerns AIB but I'll get better [img]smileys/lol.gif[/img].

          Will the various existing Club related threads (i.e Yellow Road) be moved here?.

                  Just using it as an example. More might get involved in club related threadswith a specified AIL forum. What harm will it do? We have fora devoted to "Other clubs" and "Other Sports" here, so why not one for local rugby?.


                  The AIL Clubs are still the foundation stones upon which the current Munster and otherprovince-based sides are built upon and will continue to for the future. Just because there has been a fall off in support for theclub game shouldn't mean we have to abandon them. (I know that's not what you're saying, btw)I'm happy to continue attending AIL and junior rugby whenever I can, not preaching here, but we've gotsome great rugby on our doorstep that deserves our support.Whether or not the AILForum is going to increase the interest in the clubs here is a fair point.I hope it doesand at least now there's an outlet for it.

                    Ah jaysus, Dungannon? f**k that for a game of soldiers, travelling up there for a league game is a stretch.


                    Nice work on the club forum Oz!
                    "It’s not the team you support, it’s the club you should support. The team on the pitch will ebb and flow because that’s the nature of sport. No team has ever been successful decade on decade. The club has the history and that’s the passion you should have."

                            You saying you will provide updates on the club scene in Leinster?


                            That's great looking forward to your reports!
