    Its a shame how little of this day I can remember.

    I can remember my lofty perch in the stadium . . . . the hair raising ovation Munster got when they walked off after the warm up was a noise Ill never forget . . . .and how the whole stadium seemed to be Munster fans!!!, id never seen that before at a match.

    But the game, I can't remember much of it from the day. Just the shaggin nerves . .

    . . .oh the camera clips from back home on the big screen.

    Very little memory left.
    I've the same problem. I can remember the pre match build up, walking to the stadium, Stringer's try and standing pitchside after the game and watching the players dancing to Status Quo! But the actual game is just a blur.

    I bought champagne. I ended up in a ball in a friend of a friends room about 10, ordered steak, and fell asleep on one of the beds. There was no moving me.

    Had about 10 hours sleep and woke up the only sober Munster person in Cardiff the next morning. The train station was like a scene from a zombie movie.

    It was a great, great day.

    My boss at the time wanted a ticket for his young daughter in the same section as his wife, I got them but when we arrived they were miles apart, I said no bother, two rows of people moved to let mum and daughter sit together, the boss was asking me how the hell did you do that, he didnt know that whole section were Harrys tickets , what a game. I still reckon I have never seen a better game by any player in any game than Strings that day

    I was on the other side - right above Halstead. I remember a moment of perfect clarity just before he did his twist in the tackle, knowing exactly what he was going to do, basking in it because it's my favourite moment on the rugby pitch (bar maybe that perfect pass that sends someone screaming away) - that point when you know you're going to get it down, that the tackler hasn't stopped you, he just doesn't know it yet. I roared my head off at that point.

    I'd gone in a group that had a guy who'd no particular interest in rugby, he was just a great friend of one of the lads I was with. I was next to him and at the final whistle I turned and gave him the biggest hug I had in me. Credit to him, he hugged back. Then I turned to the other side and hugged a complete stranger. 7 years of frustration and near misses pouring out in twenty seconds of pure exhilaration.

    What a day that was. What a team that was.

    Interesting factlet #25863: That gymnastic equipment is the very kit was used for the 2012 Olympics. My daughter was in the gymnastics comp that the UL Arena the was set up for in this video and the Gymastics Ireland chief announced it there.

    Great weekends drinking in Cardiff and Swansea.
    Yep - at home - found it recently. Feels like a real souvenir too.

    06 was my first final and I have all the memorabilia from 06,08 and all blacks games. It's a sickness at this stage for me to hold onto all that memorabilia. But memories I will have for the rest of my life.

    Was that before or after Lehman Bros went belly up?
