Memorable Rooster, but my favourite was the one he scored at Dragons when he took the ball on the burst, scorched through the defence then beat three Dragons into the corner. Jackie used to have it playing on his posts, I used to watch it 4/5 times.

Bring it back JB. >EW

It is in this one as are all of his televised trys

Aye it's there a 1min 37. Bullied them in their droves. :cheers:

Recovered this off Bakebook, shows a bit more of it, pace, power & determination, that was Nev.https://www.facebook.com/ulsterrugby/videos/1339707802774982/

Just watched the documentary, very well done. For all we spout about Ulster at times, in respect of Nevin his dad Noel & brother Graeme Ulster seem to have got just about everything right.

Well done indeed to those who put that together. >appl

Clearly, I don't share Emma's beliefs and hopes, but she is a wonderful young lady who is a credit to and an excellent spokesperson for the family and well, I just love her painting of Nevin, there is such life and energy in it. :thumleft:



Baggy, as someone who like you doesn't share those beliefs I had the same thoughts watching that documentary. As Emma herself said, the family was ripped apart that day by not just one loss, but three. If it had been her Dad, then the brithers would have been there to comfort her or the Dad if it had been one of the brithers, but to have to deal with all of that in one go must have been unbelievably traumatic. Every time i hear her soeak about things I am just awestruck by the way in which she carries herself.

When we think about some young sportsmen these days getting affected by fame, Nevin's story is truly humbling. A guy who was totally modest and just wanted to be a typical brother or mate to people, rather than some kind of star. That and his joy of life (with the constant smile) are things plenty of others could learn from.

Never Forgotten :red:

Echo everything that has been said so far. Nevin, his dad and brother were great people and the Spence family deserve huge credit for how they have coped since then. Puts all our rants and raves into perspective and on this matter UR have been exemplary.

He was a special player and a wonderful young man. Can't believe it's been 5 years.

Never forgotten.

Have to add my three ha'pence. That second try against the Dragons was a beast of a score from a lad who looked like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth.

Is it really five years? Still a heart breaker. For all that he was and represented, he should never, ever be forgotten!

Wonderfully talented rugby player, the greater loss though is the admirable young man he was...god bless him and his family - I'll admit I had a tear in the eye for the lot of it.
I can't shake D Humphreys words about Nev and what it meant playing for Ulster. I'm an exile and never been through the schools system etc, but ulstermen will drive Ulster forward not foreign journeymen, if a visit to Ravenhill and the Nevin Spence centre can produce a few more Nevins, Ulster will be a better place on and off the pitch.

I often ponder how good he’d be now, had he been around. How infectious his smile and enthusiasm could have been at the peak of his powers.
My blackened heart goes out to the family as they lost so much more than us moaning feckers.

A couple of days early chaps, but no harm in that.
