Ah Man.... so close unlucky! they were that close! oh well some match though my heart brimmed with pride as the boys ran out onto the pitch. The munster boys who did the hakka were amazing it has to be one of the best sights i've seen at a rugby game ever pure class the roar of the crowd behind them was unbelievable. I had goosebumps watching it. There is just something about rugby in munster though each county has either hurling or football but we all come together for rugby it's a religion really.
I have to say aswel when they brought the ball in by helicopter i thought "only in ireland' still though when the army man held up the ball there was some roar, and lets not forget the boys who played in 1978 were there too. they got the biggest cheer!
anyway the first person to score at the match and at the new thomond park stadium was Paul Warick. How has he escaped my radar? Yer man is a ride! Myself and my buddy J were transfixed looking at him. He's fecking lovely!! for a pic have a look at Glitterkitty's site, drool
It's a pity we didn't have that back row on sat last! i know people are saying that it was the New Zealand B team but it was still New Zealand! And some of the munster guys hadn't played before either. So we should be proud of them! And fair play to the New Zealand boys coming out after the match and saluting the crowd too.
that is all
