One good positive is that there has been a noticeable improvement since Toby Booth joined.

Possibly. It would be a big impact to have achieved in a very short time. I’m sure he has made a difference, but I think it’s more likely that it has coincided with having Marler (and Sinckler) back and a few of the newer players settling in.

As others have said, I think there are some more encouraging signs and I’m a lot happier with the way we’ve played in our last 3 games rather than the previous 3. Onwards and upwards.

That would explain the accent then!

Well it would if it were true. The fact is the referee Mike Adamson of the SCO was born in Stirling in Scotland,

But born in Belfast

Mike Adamson, the referee, was born in Stirling. Check your map, mine says Stirling is in Scotland.

ref & linesmen Scottish

Ref and touch judges represent Scotland.  However, Keith Allen is from Northern Ireland.

Not such an unusual thing for a ref to represent a country other than his own.  JP Doyle and Marius Mitrea are other examples. 

Meanwhile, Luke Pearce has the impressive honour of being born in both Exeter and Pontypool, at least according to Wikipedia.  Well done Luke's mum...

Yes, just confirmed that. The referee is from Scotland, one touch judge from Scotland and the other from NI.

So there was an northern Irish official officiating in a northern irish teams game? That surely can’t be allowed.... I did think I heard an Irish sounding accent over the comms when he continually chirped in when Quins infringed but not Ulster.....

so there was one official, not the referee but one of the two touch judges was born in NI. Is that why Quins lost you're saying? If you take your blinkers off for a second you'll probably find that the Ulster supporters where equally not fussed on some of the refereeing decisions. Happens in every game. You see what you want to see.
Will be a cracking game at Quins, looking forward to it. Yes I'm an Ulster fan, but always had a soft touch for Quins since the Keith Wood days. Good luck to Quins in the Premiership old bean.
