On 20 May 2006, Anthony Foley held aloft the European Cup for Munster and cemented his position as a legend of Irish rugby. With a father who played for Munster and Ireland and who was a member of the team that conquered the All Blacks it was no surprise that the young Anthony took to the game and he has shone on every team he has played for from the St Munchin's Junior Cup team to the Irish national side.He was part of the Shannon side that dominated the 1990s, winning four All-Ireland league titles in a row and played in all forty-eight games in that amazing record.In a memorable debut for Ireland, he scored a try against England in 1995 and went on to gain over sixty caps and captain his country.But it is with Munster his true band of brothers that Anthony is most identified. He is the provinces most capped player, holds the record for the most tries in all competitions and he has led the Red Army to glory in the Celtic League, the Celtic Cup and, of course, the European Cup.In Axel, Anthony looks back at his outstanding career and lets us in on what makes one of the last, great amateur players tick.
