▼ News | Essence of the sport

After the 1995 world cup, when the game of Rugby Union went professional, the following was published by the club,

" in the midst of all this change it is easy to loose sight of the essence of the game, to remind ourselves of what that essence is. It is sometimes neccessary to look beneath the surface, away from the glamorous and potentially sordid side of the sport. It is by looking at aspects such as the voluntary club officials, the underage scene and the less illustrious clubs in general that one can glimpse the true quality and meaning of the game"

paragraph taken from the editorial ( Eddie O'Grady) on the match programme Munster v Connacht ~ Junior Interprovincial Championship match on 4th September 1999 play at club grounds Rathuard ,Limerick.
