I have never met anyone who has slipped on a banana skin. Why then do sports writers, coaches, players, politicians and the population in general warn of a 'potential banana skin'?

Ask all those around you this question. "Have any of you at any time slipped on a banana skin?" And when you get a "no" to that, ask these further questions. "Do you know anyone who has slipped on a banana skin? Or have you ever seen anyone slip on a banana skin?" Bet the answer is still no.

Here is the fourth and final question. Is Munster's last pool game in the Heineken Cup against Edinburgh tomorrow a potential icy pavement? We need more accuracy in the use of our cliches in what will be a game of two halves.
