If there's a game you want to relive once more, please post below. Doesn't have to be a Cup Final - any game that sticks in your mind for whatever reason and if we did a report on the game I'll try and republish!

Excellent idea DG.

Not sure it's my favourite but I happened to find the full game online (I can't remember what the policy here is about links so please delete if not allowed) [www.youtube.com]

It was a huge result both in terms of a message from the club and the players. PRL had released the news about the relegation shortly before the game in a manner to cause as much disruption as possible. Skelton went off leaving the team down to 14 for half the game but we saw a real performance of character and grit. It was a great performance.

I had forgotten how grim the second quarter was.

Agreed TT.

Lightning start then Billy off in the first five minutes. The two very soft tries conceded in quick succession and Wills red card in that second quarter. Painful.

I honestly don't see any other club, including Chiefs, turning that round.

The same YouTube account also has our home against Munster.

55 minutes of defence, then the handbags and an aroused attack.

Biarritz at Vic Rd, 2005 and Racing away, 2010 are the first that come to my mind. The second was in all likelihood an awful game of rugby, honestly couldn't see much from the stand, great fun though!
