    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                    Posted this in the other thread
                    was scrolling through the best wishes messages from 2006 on MRSC face book page this afternoon and came across this gem from OD*


                    "Best of luck in the final. If any team deserves it Munster do. Their fans alone make the game worth watching."
                    Paul McLoughlin, Leinster Fan.

                    3 generations and our dog 'Stringer' went over to Cardiff. Before the match my dad was walking the dog and was stopped by a limerick man who asked him what the dogs name was. My dad said 'He's going to win us the match'. Turns out they had a dog named after him as well and a truly bizarre conversation continued as the rest of us distanced ourselves.

                    Great memories

                        Just found some souvenirs from that day.

                          I never blub at the TV but when they cut to Paulie at the final whistle I must admit to shedding a tear. What a match.

                            Still ball like a baby when I watch it. Indescribable. Can't believe it's been 10 years.

                            Stringer is bigger even than his own immense shadow. Pound for pound, he is the best tackler in the world. If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try. And when he got up, as we knew he would, the crowd cried his name as if he had just fixed the economy.Billy Keane-After Munster\'s famous loss to the AB\'s.

                              Best memory was at the end of that wonderful day as me and the group, that had travelled far and wide for years following Munster, sat in our Hotel Bar in Bristol, having a few quiet drinks, big goofy grins on our faces, not really saying very much, no major lunatic session (that we thought we'd have when we won it), just smiling and all calm, saying to ourselves something like "FINALLY Champions!", the emotion of the day had us wrecked!
