Leicester Tigers 34 — Munster 28

Tom Croft crossed the line for a last gasp try against the run of play as the Leicester Tigers, the bastards, brought Munster’s pre-season unbeaten run to an end at Welford Road last night.

The hosts went in at half time 13-7 up following a fluky Scott Hamilton try.  Felix Jones opened the scoring for Munster with a brilliant touchdown. Paul Warwick, who limped off injured in the first half, added the brilliant extras with an expertly-struck conversion.

Former Munster favourite Jeremy Staunton, now a renegade traitor of course, kicked a number of penalties for the enemy at Welford Road.

How can he live with himself?

Leicester benefited from a penalty try shortly after the interval. But two stunning touchdowns from Denis Hurley in the space of six minutes and another excellent try from Damien Varley saw the visitors overturn a 20-7 deficit to command a one point advantage going down the final stretch.  However, Croft’s last minute, fluky, fortuitous, sneaky and controversial try sealed the win for the English, who of course illegally occupied this country for 800 years.

However, it wasn’t all bad news last night as Leinster, the evil empire, were hammered 24 -8 by London Irish in an all British clash in Dublin.

How could it be an all British clash when both teams (and Munster too) are full of foreign mercenaries ??

I can see the cheating Neil Back’s hand here. Saints and Scholar’s work here Mr Out.

And what would you expect from that turn coat Kilfeacle man? ( Do you rememeber him doing the triumphalist swagger thing on his way to touch down in Dorradoyle, and then dropping the ball ? )

Sniffle, Staunton is from Galbally, Co.Limerick. Mr Kidney and co. decided that he wasn’t good enough for Munster and so began his journey around the Guiness Premiership. Harlequins, Wasps (twice) London Irish and now Leicester. Varley wasn’t considered good enough by Kidney either, so he upped and went to Wasps. Munster swallowed humble pie and brought him back, suddenly he’s good enough. Boyh played AIL for Garryowen. Incidently both played for Wasps against Leicester last season and scored all the points in a 19-0 win.

Jesus, Sniffle, that would be embarassing. I remember a soccer player celebrating as if he scored after his side got a penalty. He put the ball down, indicating 1-0 with his finger as he did so, and then ballooned it about 20 yards over the bar. He neraly knocked a hole in the ozone, talk about being left red faced. I don’t remember that Staunton swagger no, but you’d want to have a heart of stone not to laugh!
