James Gemmell and Will Greenwood found themselves with a bit of time to fill on Sunday afternoon with the Challenge Cup tie between Stade Francais and Harlequins delayed due to a partially frozen pitch.

Greenwood had been in Limerick the previous evening as part of Sky's coverage of Munster's final Champions Cup pool stage game against Racing 92.

The former England international spoke generously about a moment which he, along with Alan Quinlan, Scott Quinnell and Sky Sports presenter Alex Payne enjoyed prior to kick-off.

We had this moment before the game.

It kicked off in the evening, a 5:30 kick-off. We were chatting with Alex Payne. Alan Quinlan was in the studio and Scott Quinnell. We were getting into the intracies of the game and who were hoped would play well.

We broke off half-sentence - the fireworks were going off, the Munster Rugby Supporters Club choir was singing and it just felt like it was '08, like it was '06, those years when they were dominant and they won.

The magic felt as though it had returned. The belief in the stands, the belief in the field seems to be back.

It was a wonderful to be there on the mid-tier levels surrounded by Munster supporters.


Greenwood and Sky Sports in general have often been accused of having a bias towards Munster - there's no doubting that they do love covering games involving the two-time European Cup winners.

Greenwood implored anyone who felt this to be the case to visit Thomond Park just once and see if they do not come away feeling affection for the province.


People have often said, 'Why Munster? Why always never back against the Men in Red?' Sport is about having experiences, wonderful experiences. If you ever think that there's a bias towards them, go to Thomond Park - just once.

Go to Thomond Park just once and then tell me you don't have admiration for Munster and what they've done and what they've achieved off the field to bring the whole community in and for the rugby team to be their talisman.

You can watch Greenwood speak about his affection for Munster below.
