“This was one of those sporting occasions which transcends a game and makes bolder statements about humanity……………….during one of Donald’s earlier, and also crucial, kicks, the silence was broken only by the barking of a dog from outside the stadium.”
This is an excerpt from an extraordinarily well written piece by a Kiwi, Martin Moodie, whose article captures the greatness of sportsmanship as demonstrated by the Munster fans. As the late, great Jack O’Donnell from St. Louis Missouri used to say “read this and cry”.
