      TOL on Baby under the posts vs Clermont would be mine

          Still never a yellow for me! The supposed strongest man in Irish rugby being creased by TOL. He's savagely strong for a scrum half!
          He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

            TOL on baby. Baby had to go iff iirc
            So I walked as day was dawning
            Where small birds sang and leaves were falling
            Where we once watched the row boats landing
            By the broad majestic shannon

                      i was thinking of that one too. not exactly match winning but had hickie got away 7-10 could have led to a very different match

                        I can't remember who or when, but wasn't there an amazing chase and take down just before the posts, I think away to Scarlets in the rain several years ago?

                          That was Mafi 2008 IIRC.

                          I remember - but it's hazy - a wonderful tackle by Christian Cullen on - I think - a Castres player at Thomond Park where Cullen came across on the player who was racing down the wing for a certain try, Cullen took off in a flying leap, grabbed the guy around the shoulders and kind of flipped him over and into touch.

                              Keatley pulled one off in a League match last season. Sprinted the length of the field to put a guy into touch in the corner to prevent a certain score. Munster went on to win a tight match. Can't remember the match, but I certainly recall the tackle.
