    Everyone will hate you because of [Mike Ross]. But not a hair of your head will perish.

    August 2011.

    A relatively young and untested Ulster side travel to Wales to take on Neath in a pre season game.

    Nobody saw what was coming next. Led from the front by Lewis Stevenson Ulster romped home by thrashing Neath 34 - 15.

    This was the game which I believe laid the foundations for our run to the 2012 HC final in Twickenham where Leinster famously cheated their way to a fortunate win.

    George North's try v the Wallabies for the Lions in 2013

    Rugby-wise that day in the Six Nations where nearly everyone could have won it and France wouldn't put the ball out at the end, nearly giving the country collective heart failure, was a day of sport we'll probably never witness the likes of again

    I’ll never forget that game. Was watching it in the pub and the whole place went mental when France won the ball back, only for it to turn to everyone screaming in terror when we realised they didn’t kick it out!

    When the ball finally went dead the place erupted again, only to be interrupted by a bottle of wine falling from a shelf and nearly whacking the poor chap underneath in the head. When everyone realised he wasn’t hurt everyone started cheering again! What a day!

    World cup wins over Australia and France have to be up there, if just to remind us of what could have been.

    Bods last game in Paris, when himself and Darcy were hanging on for dear life.

    Chicago and Aviva victory

    I'm not big on the Lions but the drawn series was actually very entertaining.

    I think at this point I'm just naming moments when I cried in the last decade.

    England v Scotland 2019 6 Nations just for pure unadulterated rugby madness.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,932 ✭✭✭Yeah_Right

    For me it was the RWC 2011 and 2015 tournaments. Obviously because the ABs won but also there was a lot of good matches and good rugby. I really enjoyed those 2 tournaments. Outside of the AB or Irish matches, the 2 stand out games were SA v Japan in 2015 and Tonga v France in 2011.

    As a few others have THAT 6 nations super rugby was incredible.

    A couple of individual matches that were very memorable were both in 2013. There was the game at the Aviva that y'all pretend never happened 😠and the Boks v the ABs in South Africa. Absolutely epic match with the lead changing a dozen times. Tries galore. I remember being exhausted just watching it.

    I've already posted, but another was the 6 nations when 3 teams could win on the last day depending on results. All the matches were incredible but the England France game at the end of the day (mentioned above)was just edge of the seat drama.

    But it as the whole day. Attacking, fast rugby that was great to watch.
