    Zebo's last game in Cork I think, hopefully he'll put in a big performance, he's been a little off the boil last couple of games


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Delighted to see Hart get a start, and great to see TB back.


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


    Hart can hopefully make the most of this opportunity.


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


    Go Munster!

    Kind regards,

    Leinster STH

    14 mins gone, 3-0 to munster. Munster the better team, but alot of errors.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Cloete is a great player, but hes a bit of a knack aswell, always into any handbags and always at little bits off the ball. I like a bit of niggle, but it's stupid stuff from him alot of the time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    For all the pressure munster should have come away with something. Blatant by cloete.

    Makes amends there though.

    Lightning quick to the breakdown.

    Munster well on top ..... If they can convert chances no reason it won't be a BP win. (If).


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Scannell if for what looks the first try off a strong maul!

    Edit: 10-0 to munster, 25 mins in.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,119 Jack Kanoff


    That was a clear grounding.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    What a kick by TB!


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Some last ditch tackles by munster, very lucky to not concede the try. Strong tackle by wooton.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Scannell (I think) went down hard and not getting back up


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Strong defense from Munster after alot of Glasgow pressure.

    Scannell seems to be back on his feet anyway thankfully, he's been looking sharp


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,336 ✭✭✭✭ DDC1990


    Love Cloete


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Probably should be 7 points more ahead but it's looking good. Keeping Glasgow to 0 is big too.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,119 Jack Kanoff


    Dougie still looking like he could give a full second half,

    ****ing hell giving up 40m+ on every linebreak.

    Bad one for Cloete there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,462 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    Good man Cronin!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,336 ✭✭✭✭ DDC1990


    Great response after Glasgows try and losing Cloete.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,336 ✭✭✭✭ DDC1990


    Brilliant passage of play there. Excellent from Arnold and Copeland


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,119 Jack Kanoff


    Monster tackle from Arnold... stopped Glasgow in their tracks and to win that penalty.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,336 ✭✭✭✭ DDC1990


    TB been a disaster for giving away posession.

    Cost us some excellent field position.

    He's been quite good first start back... making tackles and stealing ball too ... Hart having a good game too...he's trying things and his kicking from hand is very good tonight.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,119 Jack Kanoff


    Marshall has some boot on him :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,336 ✭✭✭✭ DDC1990


    Stupid from Klyne!
