It may be a bit premature considering that Munster still have to get past Gloucester and then either Saracens or Ospreys, but I’ve booked my trip to Cardiff for the Heineken Cup Final at the end of May.
The quarter-final against Gloucester is going to be a much tougher game than most people believe – beating Gloucester and winning through to the semi-final will be harder than getting to the final. Though there are no easy games at this stage of the Heineken Cup, I prefer our chances against either Saracens or Ospreys.
No matter what happens next April/ May, I’ll still be in Cardiff come the 24th May. I’ll be much happier if Munster are there too.
As a post-script, this will be my first ever foreign “holiday”. In this age of cheap air fares, most of my friends find it amazing that I’ve made it to the age of 31 without leaving the country.
