    can't be too serious a chest injury for Prendy .. he was back in Limerick over the holidays. If it was serious I doublt he'd have been travelling at all.

            @@@@SPAN style="font-weight: bold;">Halstead set to miss Heineken Cup clash with Bourgoin@@@@/SPAN>

            09/01/2007

            TREVOR Halstead will miss Munster's Heineken Cup clash against Bourgoin in Geneva on Sunday.

            The centre aggravated a calf muscle strain in Friday night's Magners League defeat to the Newport Gwent Dragons. However team medics are hopeful that he can return for Munster's final Pool Four game against Leicester Tigers on January 20th at Thomond Park.

            Back row, John O'Sullivan, is also out of contention with strained medial ligaments which will sideline him for six weeks.

            Another casualty from Friday night's trip to Wales, Jeremy Manning, was diagnosed with soft tissue shoulder damage yesterday. Manning along with Denis Leamy (flu), Barry Murphy (stomach bug) and Jerry Flannery are all expected to be included in Declan Kidney's squad for the trip to Switzerland.

            Meanwhile Kidney will celebrate his 60th game as a Heineken Cup coach on Sunday. It will be his 53rd game with Munster.

            He also spent one season at Leinster, after a brief flirtation with the Dragons, and steered them into the quarter-finals. In all, he has only missed the knock-out phase of the Heineken Cup as a coach in one season out of seven prior to this campaign.

            He has taken Munster to three finals, his record in the tournament has only been bettered in terms of number of games by two coaches — Guy Noves of Toulouse (84) and Gareth Jenkins of the Scarlets (67).

              Geneva braced as Munster hordes invade for historic Heineken Cup clash
              <DIV =LeadPara>MUNSTER’S next European destination, Geneva, is bracing itself for the mother of all invasions as the Red Army gears itself up for its historic first Heineken pool match in the Swiss Alpine city on Sunday. </DIV>
              <DIV =LeadPara>An estimated 10,000 Munster supporters are expected to descend on the picturesque city of just 180,000 inhabitants, arriving to the 30,000 seater Stade de Geneve by plane, train and automobile. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>While there was understandable anger amongst Munster supporters at ERC’s decision to fix Munster’s Heineken Cup round five tie against Bourgoin for a Sunday — their third-in-a-row in this year’s Heineken Cup campaign — a number of the travel agents chartering flights to the match are almost fully booked. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>Killester Travel, which work closely with the Official Munster Supporters Club on away trips, are fully booked having chartered two flights from Shannon and one each from Cork and Dublin. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>Glen Flanagan, Munster Supporters Club PRO, says the novelty of Switzerland holding its first professional rugby game and the passion of Munster fans, who have built up a reputation in following their team, are some of the reasons why he expects at least 8,000 present. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>"We’re tied in with Killester Travel who offer our members discounts on all our flights," said Flanagan. "Many, many more will find their own way to Geneva but you’ll definitely see 8,000 Munster fans in the stadium. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>"There was an awful lot of anger when they heard it was on a Sunday and people have had to readjust their schedules. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>‘‘It’s the third time in a row this has happened this season but it would take something like a nuclear bomb to stop the Red Army from travelling. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>"People, for example, are flying into Paris from Cork and Shannon and then getting the TGV down to Lyon," added Flanagan. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>"They’ll stay there for one night, then make another two and half train journey across to Geneva, stay there for a night and back again." </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>Irish holidaymakers on skiing trips in central Europe will also make their way to Geneva for the game, according to Flanagan. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>Pat Dawson of Dawson Travel has said demand for this match is "unprecedented" and confirmed that up to 900 will fly out of Cork and Shannon as well as 200 from Dublin through his company. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>"The demand is unprecedented for a pool match. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>‘‘It just shows the extra supporters that come on board as a result of their great win last year. I would expect between seven and ten thousand Munster jerseys at it." </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>Declan O’Connell of Lee Travel still has limited availability for a charter flight leaving Saturday and returning after the game. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>The Stade de Geneve will become the 80th stadium to stage Heineken Cup matches. </DIV>
              <DIV =TailParas>"We have given over 2,000 tickets to French schoolchildren and over 1,000 to schoolchildren from Geneva to offer as many potential rugby fans as possible the chance to experience Heineken Cup rugby," said Director of Bourgoin Rugby Pierre Raschi. </DIV>

                Jesus on a Bike,8000 supporters at Geneva, that is just unbelievable. That's just lunacy!


                I'm a little sick and tired of the usual cliched "Greatest Fans in the World" headlines, and the worst cliché of them all, the queues outside the Credit Unions across the province, but it seems pretty guaranteed there'll be at least 6000 or 7000 Munster supporters in Geneva for the game.


                Granted, while all of them might not be travelling from Ireland, with huge numbers of not just Munsterfolk but all Irish coming from across Europe, Geneva's very handy that way, but still, 8000 is really taking the P**s for away support!


                It's no wonder the ERC take us for granted, we'd travel to the Moon for a 12 midnight kickoff if we had to. Good God, we are lunatics the lot of us! [img]smileys/razz.gif[/img]Friday cannot come quick enough!

                    I hear you about the clichés, it's almost patronising. I reckon though that the owners of Geneva's Irish bars are planning the indoor heated swimming pools off the weekend's takings already...

                        Considering Munsters average home attendence is just over 9,000 it certainly puts those bandwagon jibes to bed.

                              Fark moi! I must say, I felt sure they'd be doing well to get 2000 or 3000 to travel; especially with Sunday game &amp;Bourgoin are effectively out of the tournament. I know it's not a dead rubber, as we still have to get two more wins regardless, but you know what I mean...

                                <TD ="article">Defending champions Munster, along with Llanelli Scarlets and Biarritz Olympique are the only teams left with four wins from four but nothing will be determined for even that trio until after Round 5 with most of the qualification spots and important rankings staying firmly in the melting pot until the following weekend.

                                And the new venue of Stade de Geneve, Switzerland, will become the 80th stadium to stage Heineken Cup matches as Bourgoin take their clash with Munster across the border.

                                “We have given over 2,000 tickets to French schoolchildren and over 1,000 to schoolchildren from Geneva to offer as many potential rugby fans as possible the chance to experience Heineken Cup rugby,” said Director of Rugby Pierre Raschi.

                                We would hope for around 2,000 Munster supporters, who we are looking to support with transport from Lyon and Bourgoin, as we are for our own supporters who have made the decision to follow us to Switzerland.

                                “We are looking to promote rugby on both sides of the border. Munster are renowned for both their fantastic team and the amazing ambience brought by their supporters and a match like this would be a fantastic advert for rugby in Switzerland.”

                                2,000 sounds like a more reasonable figure for the travelling support.
