The six bonus points which each team receives for proper dress code is very simple........

(b). if any team hasn’t the proper inter county team dress code in place they don’t receive 6 bonus points.

Any player can play for any county in these Ulster team championships but once they have played for a team that’s it, they can’t play for any other Ulster county team down through the years......
