    Your one and only

    From u'5's to International Rugby, lets be having it, the moment that did it for you, just the one, please, if it's done it's done.
    One of the techie brightsparks might put together an auld Vijo for us all to watch over the Christmas. 100 moments in Irish Rugby from the BJ era, ie before Joe.
    Thanks



    There is a big man of Tyrone,
    picked up Gregan,
    most-capped of them all,
    put him under one arm
    and would not put him down
    'til the Qantas caught up
    with its own.

      He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

        "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"

            2004 win in Twickenham doing the conga around Soho and up Shaftsbury avenue out of the Lyric pub. Brilliant day and even made it home safely. It felt like we were at the beginning of great times and so it proved even if we could never beat the chuffing French, maybe this year will be different.

              Take 2:

              There is a big man of Tyrone,
              picked up Geni
              as if he were ball,
              put him under one arm
              and would not put him down
              til the Quantas caught up
              with its own.

                Either Michael Kiernan's drop goal against England or Ginger McLoughlin's carrying the English pack over the line...

                  I was going to pick Stringer's try in the '06 final, but Quinny provoking Pelouse into kicking him up the hole and getting him binned as a result was pretty f*cking funny ...
                  Tis but a scratch.

                    2nd February 1980, Moss Keane scores a try against Scotland. Brings a tear to the eye now just seeing it again.

                      One and only.. hard..

                      Once during a schools game i got 3 tries, 2 from charge downs on their outhalf and the 3rd from a chip & chase, (completely miss-hit the chip/kick, should have been a garryowen), thought i was the next Ollie Campbell.

                      as a fan,

                      running on to Lansdowne pitch after Ireland won the Triple crown in 82

                        Can't decide between McLoughlin's try in '82 against England or Mannion's try v Wales in '89......

                        Gonna go with this one

                          Many things, many games, whether it was School's rugby or heading off to Landsdowne, heck even when I stepped on the pitch at 38 to have a go at playing women's rugby and spinning out of a tackle much like Zebo to pass off to a lock who scored. Phil Orr called out one day to school and that was a thrill but 2 things still send the shiver up my spine: Bull crying at Ireland v England in Croke park and The all Munster HAka v the All blacks. I thought I would pass out merrily and be done.



                          Tic-Toc. POC and DOC. Stop the clock.

                            Lap of honour in that shyt hole in Lille, I thought we were done for good.

                            The silence for the Haka in TP, then the unison of that roar, that roar came from 120 miles around Thomond Park. The entire province roared as one, we were singular.
