Yes, once more it is that time of the year. Rugby has returned with a vengeance. The Magners League has been on for a few weeks, and now it is the second week of the Heinekin Cup. Course what with not having Sky Sports I don’t get to watch the actual games. But I have just watched RTE’s highlights package.

In case any of you all were wondering Munster did indeed win the Heineken Cup. Twasn’t a game that’ll please any southern hemisphere types I’m guessing but I don’t care, I’m a fan of forward play. This would be my cue to start moaning about the ELVs and union turning into league, but I’ll resist, instead I’ll share the joy:

Disappeared again for a few days there didn’t I? tut, tut, my bad. But just be glad I’m here at all. Cause you know… Nope, can’t come up with an ending for that sentence at all.

I’d’ve started this post with a Dude-like exclamation, only I did that last time, and I can’t be repeating myself. Not for a short while anyway. I guess Ronan O’Gara was proven totally and utterly correct when he said that Irish teams no longer have to fear English ones. After all, all three of our provinces involved in the Heinekin

The countdown has begun. And I can honestly say I’m more nervous about this match than any other match/sporting event I’ve ever watched. Maybe because Irish teams don’t tend to get to finals. I know Irish teams get to the All-Ireland finals, but in that case I’d be cheering for Sligo, and they never get there. Although I do cheer

More rugby today. The Six Nations may be over, but the European Heineken Cup is just starting to get real interesting. Three matches today, but I was only paying attention to two[1] Leinster were playing away to Toulouse[2] last year’s winners. And Munster were in Lansdowne Rd to play Perpignan. Both matches were quarter-finals, and the winners will be playing
