    I think our back row is what wins this for us tonight...

    According to TRK, the saints will probably be routing all their back line movements at width directly through Ford, if we can just nail the receiver from Ford's pass we'll have them in disarray

    Saints have already been crushed once today, would be harsh to make them play Munster now too!

    We could do without this lad on co-commentary.

    What a pass from scannell! Some high tempo 5 mins.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Leicester not even competing a tiny bit at ruck time. Munster should be trucking it straight through them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,468 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    I'm shattered after that.

    Excellent kick chasing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,468 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Conway having a great start, great break and chasing every ball in the air and competing well


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Johann van Eyebrows looks a serious fella.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,899 ✭✭✭✭ BBDBB


    appreciate the updates lads, thanks

    BOD is ok in the studio and good on podcasts and things like that. But he is an awful awful match commentator. He used to be ok, but he's gotten really nervous on the mic the last 12 or so months and it's getting worse.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,468 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Keatley looks badly hurt....


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,016 ✭✭✭ Bridge93


    THAts the worst advantage play ever by the ref. They lost 30m

    Munster 3 - 0 Leicester after 15 mins.

    Keatley took a fair knock but seems to be okay to jog it off.

    Conway early contender for MoTM

    Done everything well


  • Subscribers Posts: 36,255 ✭✭✭✭ sydthebeat


    Nice one


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,080 Don Kiddick


    Don't forget the ball Rhys :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    Great hands from Rhys Marshall. Reminiscent of that try that Shaggy scored once carrying the ball behind his back!

    Easy direct rugby really.

    Munster 8 - 0 Leicester, straightforward conversion to come.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,754 ✭✭✭✭ emmet02


    10 - 0 : 21 mins on the clock


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,010 ✭✭✭ leakyboots


    Great stuff, have said it on here before but Rhys is possibly the best all-round hooker on the island, amazing hands and footballing skills

    Leicester are all over the place. Munster can get a BP no bother here.

    Scannell, Arnold, conway and Marshall all having crackers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,433 ✭✭✭✭ thomond2006


    Leicester are offering little so far. Munster's defence is well able for them.
