    Tense meeting at Mallow hotel (Imperial?) when the Branch clubs were trying to make a direction ordering MR to give more tickets to clubs for a semi final and he manfully faced a mainly hostile crowd incl his 'home' club and told it straight and fair.
    Out in Viadaana on a dull, cold, wet Sunday to play Aironi and he greeted all Munster fans individually and thanked them for coming, as to be fair so did Tony McGahan.
    A gentleman who was always clear that he did not get it right every time, but IMHO did it most of the time.
