Slugger and the Rugby World Cup…

Just had the happy news that I have managed to acquire a ticket for the Ireland versus France game in Paris on Friday 21st September. I’m hoping Aaron will also be there, and that, between ourselves and Michael (Robinson) we can sneak some blogging in between festivities. Ireland’s in the group of death, so the French match is likely to be decisive. I see the Irish Embassy is open the next day, but knowing the extent of their generosity in the past, I may give it a bye, be good and catch the plane home instead. Good new: O’Driscoll may be fit to play the first game. NOw where’s that French phrase book?
