Heineken Cup legend Anthony Foley will have even more people urging him on to another semi-final appearance on Saturday following the birth of his second son.
The 34-year-old Irish international back row man was delighted to welcome home wife Olive and their latest addition, Daniel, on Tuesday, after his arrival in the early hours of Friday morning last week.
Having been at the birth, Foley then made his way to Galwey the next day to help Munster continue their push for the Magners League title.
Daniel will join brother Tony in watching his Dad trying to ease Munster past Gloucester in Saturday's Heineken Cup quarter-final at Kingsholm. If selected, Foley will extend his tournament appearance record to 86 matches.
All Munster coach Declan Kidney will be hoping is that his long-serving back row man gets the chance of a few hours sleep before the big game!
