Beafy Botham is my sporting idol!
I met him once at LR before an Ireland Vs England game in 1989 and I was in awe of him.
He epitomises what sport should be all about, playing as hard as you can, never giving up but most of all having a bloody good time doing it.

Allez les Blues predated Bourgoine by at least a year. I can remember it being sung in Biarittz in Jan'04 - I remember the funny looks we were getting from the Locals hijacking their language

Well, in days gone by, yes. Another favourite was the "plucky Irish". Not recently, since we've begun beating the English and being spanked by the Southern Hemisphere-ites though! On that theme, the 'English Saxons' coach (Callard?) before they played Ireland, remarked that when teams play Ireland,...

I remember David Campese just wandering away from his teamates with a ball and continued his warm up when the Haka was taking place. The ABs went mental and threatned to pull the plug on doing it in the future.

Well, I don’t know how true or untrue the car pushing is. All I know is what my mate told me, and I would have absolutely no reason to disbelieve him. And if this was brought into the training regime then well and good. Who are we to argue with Cheika and Knoxy

He shares an apartment with one of the new trainers of the team and he said that he has been really putting them through their paces this past week out in UCD. Pushing cars up hills, making them run 400m in less than 64 seconds and if t...

Thats a disgrace ... €80 for a stand ticket. Max price you'd pay for a stand ticket in Croker for GAA is €30 on All Ireland Final Day. Incorrect. at least €40 for All Ireland Semi (and that's not for "premium" seats). They have to make a buck somehow given that they're shelling out at least €1.25m ...

I think the Lotto funds were being given to the Leinster Branch rather than Leinster Rugby (pro team) for the upgrade of the back pitch in Donnybrook. As regards the Lotto money to the RDS, thats not for Leinster Rugby either, but rather for the upgrade of the pitch in their ground and the redevelop...
