    Leicester can keep as low as they want in the long grass.


    At 5:30 on Saturday they have to come out to the roar.


    Remember Saracens. Gloucester I &amp; II. Remember Sale.


    Remember being at Lansdowne last April 1st when the team came out.


    Later that month, can we ever forget the mass of heaving red singing in the sunshine against Leinster?


    And, Cardiff, now that was something else. From the ovation as the team left the field after the warm up. To the build-up to the team's entrance. The noise when Halstead scored. The pandemonium as Stringer saw the gap and went over and we dared to dream. O'Connell St. ROG's final penalty. The last 3 unbelievable minutes. The last seconds. The roar. And the joyous afters.


    So another Saturday 20th has finally arrived.


    The Red Army will come. Our team will line up in the tunnel. Leicester will be in their huddle, as if thiswill act as some talisman against the evil spirits of Thomond Park.


    This will be a day when one of the great clubs of English and European rugby will accept the challenge of lowering Munster's colours on their home ground. Have no doubt but that this challenge will be met by a ferocious crowd and a valiant team. Who happen to be European champions and who will defend their title, their unbeaten record and their honour with a ferocity that many of the Leicester players will be seeing for the first time.


    Who says people aren't talking about Saturday? If that is so, it is because they are waiting for the story to unfold. As it will. And Munster will still be at the summit.


    Let the drama begin.
