Cross your fingers Ulster fans. Stephen Ferris is a big doubt for next weekend’s Heineken Ciup quarter-final against Munster after limping off against Aironi last night.
It hasn’t been the easiest week for Munster fans, but they will be heartened by the expected return of the big fella, Paul O’Connell, for the Heineken Cup quarter-finals.
Hot on the heels of bagging the signature of Tommy Bowe, Ulster have now snagged a new coach, New Zealander Mark Anscombe.
Captain Paul O’Connell will join fellow Munster man Conor Murray on the sidelines for the rest of the RBS 6 Nations as Ireland’s campaign sinks further and further down the tube.
The departure of Tony McGahan from Munster was only a rumour yesterday but it was, very briefly, confirmed by the province via Twitter this morning.
Irish rugby supporters will not only be feasting on chocolate eggs this Easter Sunday, they’ll have a delicious All-Ireland provincial showdown to look forward to as well.
The final weekend of Heineken Cup action certainly didn’t disappoint if you were Irish. If you were the new England coach though…
Munster were so good against Northampton in the Heineken Cup this evening that Joey Barton felt moved to dish out some effusive praise on his Twitter page.
