Okay – we’re now just a week out from our Connacht semi-final showdown with the Sheepstealers and we’ve had a range of opinions expressed here about how this match will go, with, at the one end, some expecting a very comfortable victory for us while others fear we could end up getting mugged in our own backyard.
So, what’s it going to be, then? A walk in the park (McHale Park, to be precise), like the facile victory we recorded over the same opposition at the same stage of the Connacht championship back in 2009? Or, perhaps, a nervy win, such as the one we chiselled out against them in Hyde Park in the Connacht final of 2011? Or, God forbid, an upset like the one we suffered when the Rossies last downed us in the championship at McHale Park, way back in 1986? It’s time to test the waters.
How will we do against the Rossies?
