Editor's Viewpoint: A welcome return
The return of Andrew Trimble to the Irish rugby team for Saturday’s Six Nations opening match is great news.
The flying winger’s international career has been |cruelly interrupted and now he has been given the chance to shine. There is sadness too that injury has robbed fellow Ulsterman Stephen Ferris of a chance to showcase his enormous potential.
Three other Ulstermen make the bench for the weekend game, a reflection of the sterling performances put up by the province during the Heineken Cup campaign. Hopefully they will be given some opportunity to play in what should be a winning start to the defence of Ireland’s Grand Slam.
