We thank you for your support throughout the past year and sincerely hope that we have given you value and enjoyment for the time you spent with us on the site.
We look forward to the the New Year with optimism and hope that each of the provinces can continue in the same good form that they enjoyed in the latter stages of 2003.
Finally we extend our warmest congratulations to Ulster on winning the first trophy of the season and commend them on the manner in which they achieved that victory in Murrayfield.
