I never thought I'd see anyone post "Ballybofey is like New York."

Replying To Donegalman:  "Yeah but don't forget 2011 2012 2015 2018 first round games were from the prelims so we had extra matches, home and away first round ties really. 2013, 2016, 2017 were home without prelims. 2014 we were away to Derry, so you could say we had 3 home games out of 8 years."
Was a quiet morning in the office so looked at the Ulster Championship over the last 10 years and the breakdown of home/away games are as follows:

Antrim = 3 Home, 7 Away (1 of the 3 Home draws played in Armagh)
Armagh = 3 Home, 7 Away
Cavan = 9 Home, 2 Away
Derry = 8 Home, 2 Away
Down = 5 Home, 6 Away
Donegal = 7 Home, 7 Away
Fermanagh = 5 Home, 6 Away
Monaghan = 4 Home, 7 Away
Tyrone = 7 Home, 6 Away

The teams with more than a total of 10 are those who played and won Preliminary round matches over the 10 years.

This is a better representation of what I said. Fair play.

When you put it like that, I can see your point.

And both have a bridge which if you cross you are in to another sprawling Metropolis.

Why are there 51 home games and only 50 away games ?

Should still be the same number of home teams as away teams.

Then must have tallied wrong. Sure why don't you check yourself and come back with the correct numbers like a good chap. Ta.

Following a stewards enquiry I rechecked and couple of changes....

Antrim = 3 Home, 7 Away (1 of the 3 Home draws played in Armagh)
Armagh = 3 Home, 7 Away
Cavan = 7 Home, 4 Away
Derry = 8 Home, 2 Away
Down = 4 Home, 7 Away
Donegal = 9 Home, 5 Away
Fermanagh = 7 Home, 4 Away
Monaghan = 5 Home, 6 Away
Tyrone = 4 Home, 9 Away

That's 51 on each side and hopefully right this time as checked twice - though thought was right the last time so make your own minds up.....

Another typo - Armagh 4 Home (7 away)

What happens when doing when watching the Rugby.

Depends who is playing and what the outcomes of other games as to whether they get called off. After Ireland's victory today the Scotland Japan game will be called off allowing Japan to go through as group winners.
