    Help needed in Marseille for a Munsterfan Sorted

    Just had a message from the wife of one of the posters on here - Markcaver (he's the dad of Ruairi who's famous after the Lost Ball thread).

    Mark got hit by the ball that Jonny Wilkinson kicked out of play to end the match.

    He's ok, but is in hospital and it's looking likely that he's dislocated his finger.

    He is though still hoping to make his flight home tonight. The only worry he's got is that he's on his own with little Ruairi (who's about 7 by now) and he's on morphine and so is looking for somebody that could watch out for them both in the airport & on the plane home tonight in case he feels a bit spaced out from it all.

    They're booked on the 11.55 (local time) flight with Aer Lingus from Marseille back to Dublin TONIGHT

    Munsterfans, do what you do best - get this message out to those travelling on that flight please!

    Diolch!

    I don't doubt for a moment that this request will have a satisfactory outcome. Good luck to Mark and RuairĂ­.

      All sorted - a cousin of a poster is on the same flight.

      Yet another reason to add to the never ending list as to why I support Munster.

      Diolch!

      Mods - any chance someone could edit the title of the thread so that it says 'Sorted' after it?

          That's why Munster are special. All for one! That cheered me up immensely after foolishly reading RTE tweets.

              Sorted in 20 minutes!
              Why am I not surprised.
              Between this and all those pitching in to help Pixie and other wayward travellers - I'm feeling like MOS after a half bottle of Jameson.

                I don't know why this makes me tear up.

                      Is it too soon to start slagging him for (presumably) knocking the ball forward? 😱

                        But will Wilkinson be cited for reckless play?

                          Jonny will probably post him a signed ball with an apology for busting the mans finger. He's that type of talisman for the sport.

                            Hope the finger is better soon! I remember years ago being hit on the poll by a ball kicked out when we were in the terraces at a Gloucester v Munster game (the reverse fixture before the "Miracle Match"). Never saw it coming - woke me up big time!
