Off topic, I know, but do we know which weekend the Heineken Cup quarter finals are? Can't seem to find it on their website.
Pretty sure they make everything impossible to find on their website.

Re: Munster Game

There is always an element of over familiarity in interpro lineouts, but it does emphasize a weakness.
