Stewards' call no music to ears

Two small things that irritate on big match days in Dublin; firstly the call for stewards to 'end of match positions' when most of the time the on-field outcome is still very much in the balance.

Surely modern technology allows internal security communicate without having to resort to the public Tannoy.

It is not fair on players or on spectators when the seed is planted for some to get up and leave early thereby spoiling the conclusion to the game for many.

And, secondly, could provincial supporters, especially those of Munster persuasion, please desist from wearing the southern province's colours wherever and whenever Ireland plays. Is it too much to ask that we all wear green in the common cause on big match days?
