    That was right in front of me. Dougie pointed to where he wanted the ball and Dinny put it on the exact spot.

    Happy days.

    I don't think he moved to 12 until his final season. He possibly should have done it sooner. I seem to remember thinking it suited him and us.

    The fifth day of April 2008 would alter Denis Hurley's career path. In front of 16,000 spectators at Kingsholm Stadium, he showed why Kidney had put so much faith in the callow back. He nearly got in for a try, made a potentially try-saving tackle on James Simpson-Daniel and contributed to Munster's quarter-final win with a sublime grubber kick that set up Doug Howlett's 62nd-minute try.
    I remember watching him in the 08/09 season wondering why he couldn’t catch high balls anymore. It says he moved to the wing but I thought he moved to Centre 12 for us which didn’t really work out

    Very eager to give these guys a send off i see. i don't think munster owe a whole lot to CC.


    Let's not live in the past here. I'm sure halstead knows how appreciated he is everytime he is in public.


    This thread is about young Hurley, and I am thrilled with him but also think he is gonna be a real talent. He's 22 and has all the attributes for a big strong and great irish fullback, the likes of which I've never seen before.


    I hope he has an absolute blinder, and if he does, I hope to god he doesn't get pulled off at the end for that has-been's swangsong.

    If Hurley starts and Earls doesn't it will be a disgrace.....it is great news for him tho, and I am taking nothing away from his good play this season, which I have read reports of.
    Agreed.

    But he is only coming back from injury......having watched Earls a number of times this year, he is a great talent, but has a long way to go...I get the impression here people are expecting miracles from him...lets hope people dont expect too much too soon and let him develop.....

    Same Hurley alright, the wing/FB.
    Hasn't been mentioned on here, would be disappointed if it happened now that he'll probably be battling with Mossie for the FB slot.

    On of the Munster folk who posts on lf.com says Hurley (I think it's the same guy) is heading to Exeter next year.

    Sad way for Cullen to end his career but I guess it was time.

    Whats the thinking of not letting him finish his career/time with us infront of Munster fans athome? Verysad way for anyplayer to finish his time with any club....


    Hehad the family over from NZ for the Dragons game. I assune it was what he wanted himself. It is typical of him, no bulls**t just get on with things.
