The Alternative UBL tables 2014

The social Media #UBL

So the season is drawing to a close with leagues and cup’s being won, some teams going up and unfortunately some going down. It got our minds thinking what are clubs like off the pitch. One easy modern day way to measure this is social media, so for a bit of fun to kick off the impending off season so we have come up with the alternative Ulster Bank League tables. This one you don’t the get points for trys or kicks just for likes and follows.

We have taken the four  All Ireland leagues and seen how would they have finished up if they were decided on social media. We took the official club facebook pages and twitter feeds  and counted up the followers and likes so check it out and see how your club did.

What we did find was that it may not have been a great year on the pitch for Bruff RFC however off it they were the king pins of social media in the UBL winning Division 2B and having the highest points of any UBL club. And the club who will have to work hardest in the off season online well that goes to Buccaneers RFC we could only find 100 followers for them on their official pages.
