    It is for me. Evening kick off with a smallie means if it's not in Cork, I miss it. I go to the Mardyke in the afternoon with her instead.

    On pure rankings from the league, we'd have an excellent chance of getting Connacht in every year. If we were only acting out of pure self-interest, that's what we'd have done. We didn't. It's why...

    FFS. "We shall" is a future tense, not an intention. Give it over, because all you're doing is making yourself look (even more) ridiculous.
