Gloucester director of rugby Nigel Melville admits his team will be careful where they write their plans when they take on Munster in the Heineken Cup this weekend.
This Saturday sees Gloucester take on the Heineken Cup heavyweights from Ireland for the first time since their fatal 33-6 defeat at Thomond Park last season.
Munster's remarkable victory, that saw them progress at their opponent's expense, was described as "the most outlandish ambush" in the cup's history and attributed, in part, to a Limerick taxi driver who had found Gloucester's game plan in the back of his cab.
Melville, writing in the Guardian, said: "The story was a bit surprising since we didn't write down our game plan and, when we checked, none of our party had travelled in a Limerick cab.
"Later it transpired that the cabbie was something of a local folk hero and the "game plan" turned out to be nothing more than the aide-memoir we give players before each game summarising what we have been talking about during the week.
"We had been unable to print it from our own computer and had used the hotel's but had not bothered to trash the file once it had been printed out and put under the players' doors. It certainly wasn't that important and certainly wouldn't have changed the way Munster played, even if they understood it.
"The truth is that we played poorly. We just didn't play.
"Anyway, as luck and fixture list would have it, we have been drawn in Munster's group again this year.
"And despite everything we won't be changing our plans. We will stay at the same hotel, only this time anything written down will be on rice paper."
As part of the build-up to next month's Cardiff 2014 Heineken Cup and Amlin Challenge Cup finals weekend, ERC has joined forces with the WRU, Cardiff Blues and adidas to develop an annual grassroots community rugby programme targeting young players.
The Ulster Rugby full back, Jared Payne (No 15), has been suspended for two (2) weeks following an independent Disciplinary Hearing in Dublin arising from the Heineken Cup quarter-final match against Saracens at Ravenhill Stadium on Saturday, 5 April.
