Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

I think it was more the formation of the Celtic League that brought a lot of the players home. Before that the provinces had the inter-pros, and the HEC, the final of which was played in December/January (?), and then fúck all else until the following season. Between 95-99 rugby was at best semi-pr...
