South of France or South Belfast, I know which I'd go for.

If true he's landed on his feet, fair play.

Delighted for the two lads that they got sorted.

I'd welcome both back to the Irish fold in a heartbeat.

I would welcome them back too: I’d give them a verbal kick in the hole too- certainly. But they’ve served any penalty appropriate at this stage, but I can’t see it happening- at least not any time soon.

The pitchforks are still in the thatch , if there’s any attempt to forgive them their “crimes.”

so, what you're saying is that unnecessary punctuation has no place in criticism?

What I’m saying is- you’re neither a critic of any worth- nor in a position to set yourself as one- given you’re own record with grammar and punctuation.

But don’t let the fact that this is a serious issue deter you from your dreary shite.

I wouldn’t normally bother to reply, but we have history- I’m sure you remember?

So in this case, it is “your” actually. I’ll let you work it out though the filter of ‘your’ Old School Socks.

I'm afraid you'll have to remind me, all you are right now is some bloke (possibly lady?) who doesn't understand the difference between the second person possessive and an abbreviation of you are

https://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/bil ... 69470.html

Bill for rugby rape trial exceeds £500k (€562k)

Lower than I expected with even though it doesn't include the players' legal costs.
They must be discounting the wages of the court staff, the judges etc.
The real cost of this must be in the millions.

https://amp.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/news/northern-ireland/revealed-500000-bill-for-ulster-rugby-rape-trial-37322257.html?__twitter_impression=true

There is a fuller breakdown of costs and what is covered
There is bound to be a lot of other costs such as police time, PPS time etc which are not in that lot.
Jury costs are right I would think as there is a maximum of about £65 a day to cover wages if you are employed. Personally I know self employed people who have just paid the £1000 fine and not turned up to long cases because of that.
