The Dust Settles

You might have wondered what happens after the last test! Well, we get a very welcome break, a few nights out and a few nights away from the pitch, gym, each other and well just a chance to relax and unwind!

It’s done and dusted, we salvaged some pride in the last match which was some consolation but not what we came here for, its dissappointing to not win the series no matter how you feel you did personally, it’s a team thing and failing to reach our goal is never easy to accept...

The whole tour was of course an amazing experience, on and off the pitch, one I am very proud to have taken part in. Personally I have had a great season, a grand slam win and Heineken Cup victory, while it would have been great to cap it off with victory in the Lion’s test series I really can’t complain too much. Right now I am off on (what I feel!) is a well deserved break for a few weeks before next season so all that’s left to do is thank the people who followed the blog and for not only reading here but for all the support from back home and those who came down with us. Thanks for all the kind messages they were really appreciated throughout. Roll on next season – another big year in Irish sport!
