Here's how it feels to be in your first Heineken Cup final

Live long and prosper, dudes.

RELIEVED, TIRED, SORE and very, very thirsty. That’s how Regan King, Lee Byrne, Ti Paulo and Wesley Fofana look to us.

Ultimately, though, they’re more than happy to be that way after seeing off Munster 16-10 in today’s Heineken Cup semi-final in Montpellier.

Understandably, spirits are high on the victory bus. While Lee Byrne tweeted us the above picture on the four-hour journey back to the Massif Central, Nathan Hines was down the back of the bus slagging off Richie Gray.

He’s just about big enough to get away with it, I guess.
