    I got the impression from that that he feels there's nowhere to go after you've coached Munster so he'd take his time getting there.

    A little time as a coach abroad may give him a little better perspective on Munster. He's still very emotionally involved.

      Bang on! The only other job would be the Ireland one which I always think is a poisoned chalice.

            De Paper can't spell Thomond Park FFS, and they're planning to let more sub editors go next year!

            Anyway, for the benefit of new readers, ROG says we can go all the way, although he adds the caveat that our players are not as good as they used to be back in the day.

              No name on the article, or did I miss it? Poor show getting the spelling of the ground wrong alright.

              Re the squad, I think it's more of a "lay down yeer marker lads" type of comment -
              When asked how far he thinks Munster will go this year in the European Cup, he said: "I think they can go the whole way, because that's the standard Munster has set for themselves, and he [Anthony Foley] knows what it takes to win and he's a championship attitude.

              "I don't think the squad is as strong as previous years - that's my one negative comment - they probably wouldn't be in the quality of the Jim Williams or John de Villiers or other top names.
              "But that's for people coming in to make their mark and hopefully if expectations are a little lower, they can shine so there's a winning culture there and that stands for an awful lot but they've a massive game on Saturday.”
              Tis but a scratch.

                    Ah it is, being pedantic, professionals spelling incorrectly is a bug bear of mine.

                      The article itself is fine and I'm not a spelling/grammar nazi on here, but when it comes to people who write for a living it's just not acceptable to get stuff like that wrong.

                        The Examiner also called Robin Copeland Roger on Friday and had a D Smith listed in the team instead of A Smith so proof reading is not going so well at the moment. I probably have some errors in my blog on occasion, I spend a lot of time checking spellings and things but living in a glasshouse I guess I shouldn't throw any stones

                          ROG was on Off the Ball tonight.

                          Part 1 - about 51mins in.

                              ROG writes about reffing the scrum and was looking forward to the Saracens visit on Fridays paper, quoting the Sale visit as one of the best examples
                              It’ll be dark and misty and the traffic into Limerick will be a bitch. Do Munster a favour, though. Open your laptop and YouTube the home game against Sale in 2006. When Sebastien Chabal and his friends came to town. This is the only time this year an English side comes to Thomond Park. It’s special. Watch that Sale game. The crowd. Experience that atmosphere again before you head out the door tonight. That’s what Munster fans need to do this afternoon.
                              These things are important, more than you can ever imagine, to the Munster players.

                                Ronan has high praise for the supporters in this weeks column: http://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/c...ey-295721.html

                                "In last week’s column, I wrote that the crowd support was the important factor and they didn’t disappoint. It’s a basic, simple ingredient at any level of sport, being driven by the home fans. Not just attending and sitting there but actually participating and in Munster that’s what laid the platform for so much success."
