There will never be a better day as a Tigers fan. Absolutely perfect.

Best line from Father ever. He phoned me the morning after the game, somewhat "tired and emotional". he and the old girl had gone, the latter on my ticket.

It made up for the disappointment against Brive and it was a 'glad to have been there moment'. The journey home at Calais was class, just Red Green and White everywhere and rugby balls being kicked around all over the place.

Excellent to re live that thanks. Also, lovely to hear some decent commentary on rugby once again, dear old Bill bless him.

Still think it is incredible we do not have a HD DVD of this full game to buy and watch... :smt012

My thanks go to Iain for his youtube version :smt038

I was rather young then at 15 so wish I was old enough to enjoy it properly (with beer and a night in Paris) but to have gone and experience it was still pure magic :smt003

Truly special. Had seats at the front of the upper tier near the half way line and caught one of the souvenir matchballs they booted into the crowd before the game started, so hoped it was going to carry on being a good day. Can't think of a better moment as a Tigers fan.

I'll always remember being a 16 year old in an Irish bar in Montmatre with my arm around Keith Allen(wearing a salmon pink suit) singing our heads off at 02:00 in the morning. What a weekend!

Was a wonderful 4 days and during one of the nights we received news that our grand daughter had been born.

Came up on the overnight train from Souillac so not much sleep then and not much on the Saturday night, and nearly missed my station on the way home on Sunday evening!

A memory that will live with me is going down on to the Metro to return to our hotel and hearing constant shouts of "Tigers, Tigers" echoing through the tunnels and on the train itself. Also loads of locals coming up and shaking our hands.
