    I'm sure there are plans ready to be put in place.

    No way.

    I really hope not.

    If they do win the GS though, I reckon some sort of event/gathering in Smithfield similar to what is done every year after Dublin win the All Ireland.

    Unfortunetly if we lose to England, the IRFU have stated that all 23 players will have their contracts cancelled and not be welcomed back here at all

    Good gracious, I hope not. It would smack terribly of a 'peoples' sport, like soccer or some such.

    Okay this isn’t funny anymore it’s just trolling. Banned.

    That will suit the Munster lads. They can all follow Zeebs to Paris. And they can blame Jamie Heaslip ;)

    POM is going to Montpellier...he much prefers the Languedoc region as he's a connoisseur of fine red wines

    That's such a coincidence, because Heaslip was a connoisseur of red whines

    I'm actually chuckling away to that one :)

    There might have been, until you guaranteed a loss by starting this thread.

    There is a homecoming event tomorrow. You need a ticket however so keep an eye on the IRFU/Aviva Stadium/Vodafone Twitter/Facebook on how to get one.

    You see, rugby is for the moneyed. Keeps 'the people' in check. They can have their O'Connell St double decker bus events. Rugby. Different. Better. And just a touch more exclusive.

    A homecoming was already planned last week.

    Something like this might be appropriate......:D



    Just in the tradition of a triumph someone will have to walk beside Joe whispering "all triumph is fleeting......." ;)

    It'll certainly reduce the numbers attending, which is a pity. No way I am going out in that......speaking from SouthWest Dublin.

    The SCT final has been cancelled so there’s a chance this might be too.

    It's absolutely howling snow in D4. I can't see this going ahead. I doubt emergency services will look kindly on big crowds descending on the Aviva.
