    I suspect that was media bulls@it, it was a great way to sign off, a bit of humour and an echo of amateur days.

      I’m sure the papers blew it out of proportion a bit but by all accounts Healy did have a bitch about it, and according to GT, Muldoon apologised afterwards.

      If I was a Leinster player I’d have been embarrassed to have a guy apologising for kicking a conversion against my team in an absolute rout. It wasn’t like he even missed the fecking thing!

      Just all came across as very precious when a bit of humility after a fantastic performance in honour of a true warrior would have been more appropriate. Church couldn’t just let Connacht have their day.

            Put in Eoghan Clarke at hooker. Dave Heffernan might qualify for your team as he went to Blackrock (as did Denis Buckley) but he's from Connacht originally. Craig Ronaldson at 12, Tom Farrell at 13.

                  We can- in a neutral final- alas a ‘home’ semi for us would be away, in their back yard.

                    Yep, people who are run over by a bus - don't see it until it hits them.

                      Why doesn't someone start a petition to open up one of the Munster GAA grounds for semi-finals....

                          At risk of going a bit of piste - I think there were a few indications

                              It will be interesting to see how Le Roux goes, he was very good in the recent International Tests.

                                "To be energetic and self-sufficing is to be happy; but while one desire remains in the heart happiness may not come there. For to desire is to be incomplete: it is the badge of dependence, the signal of unhappiness, and to be freed from that is to be freed from every fetter that can possibly be forged."
