    So this idea came to me on the RTE bashing thread but the more I think of it


    With the amount of poo ont he TV these days I would expect RTE to hit the archives. A huge part of the population would not have watched the great Grand Slam of 2009. I managed to get lovely tickets for Ireland v England :P


    Anyway could we somehow put a request into RTE to play one of the games from that year each night on RTE. Would be a lot better than the drivel that is on.

    A week of rugby would cheer up the country, especially in the knowledge the end is that drop goal and missed kick :P:P:P


    Make it happen people, make it happen

    The France game aside, they were not good games. Without the tension and drama they would be pretty grim watching I think.

    It should all be somewhere on Youtube anyway. I must say watching a full rerun of every game does not appeal to me. 15-20 highlights yes but not the full 80.

    I have the DVDs. Every match, in full.

    Still in the cellophane wrapper, ten years later.

    Inspired by this thread I watched a 15 minute highlights package of the France game this morning. We all remember Heaslip and BOD's brilliant tries in that game, but Harinorduquay's try was pretty tasty as well. It was a good match.

    Just rewatched the 2003 game vs England on YouTube. Talk about missed opportunities, so many squandered chances. Geordan Murphy was on fire, just a damn shame he broke his leg.
