Two players, late into the night, playing backgammon for a few quid. Playing despite having far too many Guinness. The love of the game gets too extreme as they battle their ongoing grudge match. The conversation widens to include their respective clubs. “We have some really good players developing at Worcester, how are you doing in Cork?” “We’re not too shoddy ourselves!” “Shall we pit them against each other in a Cork v Worcester competition?” “Great Idea!!!” And so it began. A late night conversation. Vic and Sean have come up with an idea. Over a few beers it was bound to be slow in gestating.
