The Grounds

     

Thomond Park

Thomond Park is a purpose-built rugby stadium that was completely redeveloped in 2008. The capacity currently stands at around 26, 000, making it the largest club rugby ground on the island of Ireland.

Two large covered stands dominate the ground (East and West), both of which offer standing areas at the front and seating to the rear. Behind each set of posts there are small terraced areas. The atmosphere at “Fortress Thomond” can be immense despite the open ends, particularly when “The Fields of Athenry” is belted out around the ground.

In terms of access there are two main aspects that strike you. The first is that it is easier to move around inside the stadium than it is outside it. The main entrance leads into the West Stand and this is where you will find the ticket collection point, not to mention the two main bars. Fans based in the East Stand and Terrace must go back out the main entrance to go down towards the City, a short walk of less than a minute. The North Terrace is easier as you can access from the main entrance and its at the back of the ground.

 

Musgrave Park

 Musgrave Park is the Cork home of Munster Rugby. The West Stand was demolished in 2011 and replaced with a temporary structure holding a seated capacity of 2900, increasing the stadium capacity from 8300 to 9251.

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?

Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems? (Tue, 17 Oct 2017)
  We could be witnessing the start of a perfect storm for English rugby:  too many clubs losing too much money, ever-increasing demands on players to the extent that strike action has been mentioned, and PRL’s latest whizz, the controversial suggestion that the domestic season should run from September through to the end of June. … Continue reading Could ending promotion solve rugby’s problems?

On the weekend when the Aviva Premiership season kicked off there was this headline in The Telegraph: “We’re moving towards football, slowly but surely – it’s very sad” While the article started off by congratulating the sport on the increased number of spectators it was attracting, it’s increased television audiences, how sponsors were falling over … Continue reading Rugby union is moving towards Football – it’s very sad…No it’s not,It’s reality

Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football (Wed, 17 May 2017)
Colin Boag is a regular columnist in The Rugby Paper, and I usually find him worth reading. However, he is one of those rugby writers who like to blame all rugby’s ills on football. He was at it again in a recent column. He was writing about players’ attempts to get others booked, and predictably … Continue reading Rugby needs to learn the right lessons from Football

Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU. (Mon, 08 May 2017)
The Champions Cup final this weekend will lack a team from the Pro 12 for the fifth consecutive season following the Munster and Leinster semi-final defeats. The tournament has become an Anglo-French production, although in those five years only four clubs have made it to the final: Toulon, Saracens, Clermont Auvergne and, last year, Racing … Continue reading Premiership Rugby ambition must be challenged by RFU.
