The aim of this blog is to share my passion for Munster Rugby. I believe that supporting is not standing there waiting to be entertained but engaging with what is happening on the field and the terrace. I hope you enjoy the positivity in the blog, the glass is at least half full and sometimes overflowing!
Whether you were at the game and wish to relive the experience or could not attend and wish to feel like you were there, this blog is for you as my aim is to go beneath the skin of the supporter – their trials and tribulations, highs and lows, what energises and entertains them. There are plenty of other blogs and media reports with previews and reviews of the game. In the West Terrace View you can read what makes me proud to be a member of the famed Munster Red Army despite living 200km from either home ground for which I have a season ticket.
Top blogs from 2016: Irish by the grace of Munster: the CJ Project, the incredible Glasgow home game after the sad passing of Anthony Foley and the Maori All Black game while 2017 started with the emotional return to Paris: Above & Beyond and securing a home quarter final through wins in Glasgow and Thomond and the Toulouse quarter-final..
Most read blog ever remains: Munster by the grace of God, published in October 2015 – a tribute to Felix Jones and other players who adopted the province to become more Munster than those born there.
