This weekend sees the return of the rugby season for the Irish provinces with the kick off of the Magners League, and I can’t bloody wait.
The first fixture of the weekend sees Connacht entertain the Ospreys – I can only see this match going one way to be honest.
An hour later, the Magners League champions (that’d be Munster, doncha know) will be kicking off against Glasgow Warriors. I can only see this match going one way also, but in favour of the Irish team who have named a strong enough squad, going for a mix of youth and experience. You can watch the mighty Munster return on Setanta Ireland, kick off is 8pm.
Saturday sees the return of the….. of the…… damn it, I can’t bring myself to say anything nice, so lets just say Saturday sees the return of Leinster. Heineken Cup winners, champions of Europe, blah, blah, blah. Anyway, they are playing the Scarlets in the Parc y Scarlets. Leinster have also named a mixed squad of youth and experience. This match is on Setanta Ireland too, kick off is at 6.30pm.
And on Sunday, to wrap it all up Ulster return to the fold, also travelling to Wales to play the Dragons.
Hell to the yeah!
