Unlucky Irish. Worthy runners-up, fought well to the end and probably played the better rugby. Tigers were a bit more street-wise on the day.

About time to give Geordan the MOTM, and no more fitting time than the final.
Both side were a bit edgy is this game, very hard to comment fairly on their performances.
I think Steffon Armitage has the potential to break the impression he's too small for the pack at Test level. I was very impressed by his power to size ratio. It took the Mad Dog to nullify that pest at the break down.
I'm glad we finally have success to share with our imports, especially Mauger. He came under a lot of sticks when he signed for us and has given absolutely everything to us.
And, who could miss out Captain Cozza? No better person to lift the trophy when the tigers were announced champions, and gave it straight back to Geordan saying "you're the captain today mate"

I have champagne all over the sofa, and both daughter and I were in tears. So proud of the lads, commiserations to L'Irish who played really well and particular commiserations to Catty.

And as an aside (in girlie fashion) how CUTE was Lewis's little boy? With Mini Moody on the back of his little Tigers shirt :smt050
