Good win from Frampton boxed clever and seemed to have the plenty in the engine in the later rounds. That shot he took in the 11th would have floored most at that weight. Winker Watson will be camped at Windsor for BBC Newskune between now and then.

Itís hard to see where Cummings goes from here. His stock is very low and I doubt whether MTK will be bothered with him only heís Framptons mate. Just doesnít to seem to have Ďití.

Delighted for Tommy Coyle in the Liverpool show. Comes across as a great guy and he did a real job on Dodds.

Khan must have wanted to watch the Frampton fight.

The island only one win win so far albeit theyíve got beaten by Killyclogher, Errigal and now Omagh. Early days obviously but doesnít bode well for their ambitions to be beaten by 3 of the top sides.

Thanks Owen. Weíre going to test drive a few in the next week or so. I do like the look of the Ateca though.

Anyone any experience with the new Seat Ateca? Is it just more or less a Tiguan with the VW badge? We are looking at that kind of motor for the family car.

Moy ship another tanking this evening in Garvaghey losing to Trillick 2-14 to 0-09. Another excellent result for the Tatts bearing Derrytresk by 3 points.

Probably an expected 2 points for the Tatts but 3 out of 3 is some start considering the first 2 games were against division 1 teams from last season.

The talk around Belfast tonight is the two lads are getting the P45 from Ulster. Hopefully they can get their careers back on track elsewhere. Official announcement expected tomorrow.

Dear lord!!!

How does that nonsense get published??
Are you completely at a loss for common sense  to take on board some of the points made in that article?
Do you think there is no merit for such a rape case to be held in camera, for the complainant  or the accused who were deemed not guilty? That even in a trial where the prosecution case had much more substance, that such an experience for the complainant would be any easier? That such a court experience could be perceived as an off putting ordeal for a complainant?
You don't think people are entitled to have an opinion on the the loutish carry on of the accused?

No, we men must be appalled at all times and keep this feminist uprising down :-\

The people who want to pretend rape and how it is (not) policed and punished isnít a massive issue seem to have used this verdict as a green flag to tee off on anyone critical of the process.

Is it really that hard for people to see beyond their prejudices and look at the human impact? These are your children, your friends, your sisters, your nieces, your wives, your girlfriends. If a rape happened to their loved ones the same people now castigating the woman and the protesters would be at the front of the lynch mob.

Change is never easy it seems.

But a rape didnít occur here!

I was talking about the whole ĎDo and Donítí list crap she spouts.

She makes a few valid points towards the end but in the main itís nonsense and simply fuelling the ongoing trial by social media.

There is a #Ibelieveher hashtag on Twitter already

That has been there on twitter from the first day of the trial and then the subsequent #notmycaptain for Rory Best.

Even this year when we were in my opinion clearly better than the other sides we had to rely on nothing short of a miracle in Paris and an intercept against Wales. Grand slams are incredibly hard to do.

Agree on Paris that was a Hail Mary kick but we were winning v Wales at the time of the intercept plus it was on the half way line. Not as if wales were camped on the line and they were certain to score if that ball went to hand.

Almost feels anticlimactic as we were so much better than them. Scoreline very flattering to England.

You nearly want it to be a nail biter and backs to wall stuff up to the last minute.

But weíll take it!!

Mourinho's press conference yesterday  ;D  ;D
Only just seen it there this morning.
How could any United fan be happy with him saying that sort of crap.

Iíve seen a few people saying if Moyes said those things heíd have got dogs abuse which is correct. Mourinho was talking absolute bollox and covering his own back as usual.

Ringrose is 1st choice when fit and available.

Yeah Iíd agree with that too. Although the way rugby is played now itís impossible to pick a preferred first choice 15 with the amount of injuries. The squad depth at the moment is incredible bar the obvious drop in quality in replacements at 9 & 10 (only because they are amongst the worlds best in their position)
