    Munster v Australia 1981

    Back in 1981/82 (?) I think at Musgrave. I remember being 6-7 minutes late and missing the only Munster try that day.I recall another home win, but the match doesn't get as much publicity as the 1992 version. Maybe the Aussies weren't that good that year? But a proud result nonetheless.


    Pity it wasn't on the DVD.....

    I was at that game. A great atmosphere despite the weather which wasn't great iirc. Funny how I still return to the same area of the terrace today as I was that day. I don't remember any big concrete terrace like todays onethen though. Is my mind going soft ?


    BTW Blackwarrior, you're correct, the Aussies weren't great that day.

          Was there too, am waiting for the play, for total recall [img]smileys/smile.gif[/img].


          BTW, IIRC there were grass banks rather than concrete terraces.

              Good, my marbles aren't quite as bad as I thought so. Knew I didn't remember any concrete terraces. When were they built ?

                The year Pierce McNamara was MB President [img]smileys/mad.gif[/img], so probably 94/5 ish. He was the one who had the say in only putting in those small terraces in MP. [img]smileys/mad.gif[/img]

                    Were the MP concrete terraces built before Thomond's? I thought TP's were built in time for the 1999 RWC.

                          Ireland baet Oz twice in OZ around 1980 AFAIK, so beating them was not as big a deal back then, and of course they were world champions in 1992.

                            1979, wildrover....that was famous for the dropping of Tony Ward and the selection of Ollie Campbell.


                            The 81 tour was a notable time for Australia as it was the start of the process where they eventuallybecame a force in World rugby, including players like Mark Ella, Simon Poidevin andAndy Slack.


                            The 1992 win doesn't get the credit it deserves.

                              Another meaningless midweek friendly between two under-strength amateur teams in front of 6 men 4 boysand a rabid old dog?
