THe FIRFUC's favourite province have to win. :roll: :roll:

And of course from the penalty Mexico go for the corner and it results in a try. 14 point swing.

Baggy, the Munster tackler knocked the ball on in the tackle - nothing deliberate, no penalty - BUT - Earls then picks it up in a clearly offside position - so - penalty to Mexico, same result.
As to the Earls binning, he got the timing badly wrong and, though it looked far worse than it was, not a surprise that he was carded.
Given the number of times that Ulster have had players carded in seemingly harsh decisions, I have less than no sympathy for him. Nor have I any for the Turnips. They did enough crowing after stuffing us that all I can say is "suck it up lads!" At least Dan the Man didn't waste his breath whinging about the ref like Van Graan.
It didn't take too long for me to reconcile my republican heritage with the diverse political and religious backgrounds of my teammates. There was no border in the Irish dressing room.

What's certain is that Arnold's left shoulder impacts on Henshaw's right arm. After that who knows. I don't think you can definitely say it was a knock on though.

For the first time ever in reply to a post from the legend that is Rocky -

Utter rot old bean.

Me árse. Anyone who was crowing over that deserves sympathy as they are clearly deranged. No sane folk crow about an average performance regardless of the manner of victory.
It is a man's own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.
