So many memories, most of them no doubt already mentioned.
Playing in grass about six inches long which seemed to be the standard years ago, second row forward Gordon Cripps kicking penalties from well inside his own half. Crowd of 21000 watching Western Counties v New Zealand back in the fifties, crowds of several thousand Cornishmen invading the Memorial Ground to watch Glos v Cornwall in the old county championship. a man sprinkling tin taks over the pitch before West v South Africa in an attempt to stop the game being played, the two press huts for Evening Post, Evening World on what is now the family enclosure, and of course everyones favourite, being showered with rust when the ball landed on the roof of the shed.

"and of course everyones favourite, being showered with rust when the ball landed on the roof of the shed.".....Remember this well and the short pause between the ball disappearing over the roof and the thud as the ball hit it.

The toilets!! before the Centenary Stand was built.

Having only really started watching regularly in 02-03, think my favourite memories stem from the 04-05 season.
Exeter & Wasps are the two stand-out ones but that whole season...fantastic; as well as the sort of mentality we need this season!
