Munster troll Ulster as Irish legend finally makes return after Rugby World Cup injury
Tommy, Tommy Bowe. Tommy Bowe! Tommy, Tommy Booowee!
@scholesr93 replaces @TommyBowe14 at halftime after a successful 40 minutes. Great to see @TommyBowe14 back on the pitch!

It has been a long six months for Tommy Bowe.
The Irish rugby legend has been battling against adversity for a while now. He even had to fight just to win his place back in England during the Rugby World Cup. But, after just 17 minutes against Argentina, he was stretchered out of the quarter-final action and has been laid up since.
The Monaghan native missed the whole Six Nations campaign too with the same knee injury and he's had to watch the Pro 12 whiz by.
It hasn't been easy for him. Not even in the shower.

But on Thursday, the winger returned.
Somewhere in Naas, somewhere on the Forenaughts field, Irish rugby was given another lease of life with news that the Ulster Ravens were boasting the iconic number 14 in their line-up for the InterPros.
Tommy Bowe is back.
And it was seemingly only Munster who had a problem with it.

Welcome back, Tommy.
