Good if that could coincide with the opening of the new stand.

Great news! I thought renewing the season ticket was the final payout over the previous expensive few months until the end of next season, but i can't possibly miss Munster!

IIRC we need a "pipecleaner" game to get H&S Certificate.

Word is from someone that works at Welford Rd, that Tigers have a friendly lined up against Munster a week before the start of next season. :smt023 Gwan Munster :smt038

I assume they'll do match programmes? there are always biggies you want in your collection and Munster definitely fit in that category.

Don't get your hopes up too much as it won't be a full-strength Munster side as they'll be missing their Lions & their Irish internationals for a start.


My guess is that it will be about the same strength as the Munster side they sent to WR for the 2005/06 preseason friendly where we walloped them 50-19 in front of less than 8,000 people.


I doubt the club will even bother opening up the new stand for the game and they'll just keep it closed so that the workmen can carry on fitting-out the inside of it without being disturbed.

Or they'll open it up at about 75% capacity to get the H&S certificate to open the stand fully
