    Quarter final venue



    Just an idea (I know it's "out there" but don"t reject out of hand - think outside the box).





    Why don't Munster host their Quarter & Semi finals(if they have to leave Ireland) in Brussels' King Boaudouin Stadium? http://www.staderoibaudouin.be/


    Seriously ...


    50.122 seats,


    Great beer


    In the middle of town,


    Great beer,


    Same currency,


    Great beer,


    Everyone speaks english - no language barrier,


    Great beer,


    Large expat community,


    Great beer,


    Cheap & excellent quality food & drink,


    Great beer,


    Easy access for people coming from Ireland (5 flights a day from Dublin + 1 from Shannon on Friday) - certainly no more awkward or expensive than travelling to Britain,


    Great beer,


    Makes it more awkward for the "away" fans (if they're english or welsh) than anywhere in Britain,


    Great beer,


    Except for the Paris supporters, it's awkward enough for the southern french team's supporters (Castres, Biarritz, Perpignan) to get to. They won't travel .


    Great beer.


    New ground - Munster were the first team to play a HEC match in Spain, the first team to play a HEC march in Switzerland, so why not be the first team to play a HEC match in Belgium ? Stade Fran├žais were thinking about it two or three years ago, but decided on Parc des Princesor Stade de France (can't rememeber which) in the end because their fans wouldn't travel 1h30 on the train to Brussels.





    Okay, I know it sounds ludicrous at first glance, ... but why not ??

    Ok this is getting silly (even by my standards).

    What will you do if Munster lose the game against Leicester?

          My pet hate is crying over losses in sport / penalty shoot outs / near misses.

          Pathetic behaviour. You wouldnt catch Roy Keane or Martin Johnson at that sort of crap.
