    Why do they get a longer warm-up? Why do opposition teams have to stand there getting even colder after the anthems?

      That's what it was like as a student from Cork ,going up to face Young Munster in Thomond Park or the killing fields...... back in the day.

      They'd bring their goat, they'd continuously f & blind you, 'tellin ya', that they were going to 'effin' kill ya.....', 'Clohessy will get ya, ya posh, Cork, student ya.......'

      .... and that was just their women folk!!


      P.s. ah yes, great days indeed :))

        The Cookies came, in strength, to Templehill a few years ago when a very young Peter OMahony was on the Wing for Con.

        During a break in play, one of them shouted at POM "what the **** are you looking at?"

        He just stared back at his questioner with "that" look of his.

        No more was, or needed to be, said.

            Twas when they wouldn't let her into Lansdowne Rd for the Ail final, and she even had all the dogs kitted out in cookies colours........ if ever there was 'an incident' that showed the difference between Munster & Leinster club rugby at the time, that was it imho...

                  One of the best usernames anyone ever used to join this forum was '78 - I was three. I don't know how long it was before I did a double-take to realise what it actually said rather than what I thought it said.
                  Tis but a scratch.

                    I had the same 'dyslexic' blindspot with that, Chippy, for a very long time. Always read it wrong & even then I wondered if the user had made a typo originally!!

                    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"
