Hey there.

Just registered now and saw this intro section.

Am Irish, live in Dublin and Belfast, and due to family connections am a permanently conflicted supporter of Leinster, Ulster and Munster.
Have been a regular contributor to other sports and discussion boards since late nineties. Enjoy researching and writing articles, as well as getting stuck into a good discussion and swapping banter.

Played rugby from age 8 through to club rugby in mid-twenties when I had to give it up for health reasons. Love going to games and watching whatever I can on the TV whether it's PRO 12, Premiership, T14, Super Rugby, and the various internationals, North and South. Like most Irish fans, hated going to Lansdowne in the seventies anytime Ireland were playing men in red shirts - the wizards were depressingly brilliant. It's been fascinating to watch the changes over the decades, and particularly in the professional era since 2000.

I'm a fan of change in the game, and I think Rugby has still some way to go in bringing about really effective changes to the game at local level, as well as test level and globally. No doubt, there'll be an opportunity to express views on those topics in the months ahead on things happening within the game at home and further afield.

See you in the forum topics.

You can not live in Dublin AND Belfast, you have to decide if you are European or not :D

Welcome, but are you sure you really want to come here? Have you read it?
