I must say I got a kick out of seeing all those gowls with their red berets on them watching their franchise getting it's ass kicked by a local French team yesterday.

Once French teams start taking this UK, Ireland, & Bits Of France Cup seriously, the Munstershire customers will drift away, leaving Limerick with a very expensive open air concert venue for performers like Rod Stewart and Eric Clapton.
Nail on the Head. Repped.

Yes.

70,000+ people at the Stade / Harlequins game at the weekend - how bad is that.

I use the same analogy with the all Ireland Hurling - the few counties from Munster,1 or 2 from Leinster every year and ignored/abandoned by 20+ counties every year.Did Kerry not send a hurling team out one year ?
