Teams from all over Europe have been paying tribute to Anthony Foley this weekend
Clermont’s Yellow Army turned into a Red Army for the day.

IT WASN’T JUST at Thomond Park where the rugby world were remembering Anthony Foley yesterday as teams from all over Europe paid tribute to the Munster legend.

A minute’s silence was impeccably observed at every ground before Champions Cup and Challenge Cup games but some clubs went further to honour the Munster and Irish legend.
