    Strong team - no Wycherley and great to see Farrell back. I thought we'd have started Murray with Carbery again this week.

    So you don't think you sound like uneducated morons singing a Connacht song for a Munster team?

    A Connacht song written by a Dublin man? :rolleyes: Doesn't that make it a Leinster song?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,238 ✭✭✭✭ Diabhal Beag


    That Munster team is just asking for injuries

    surprised that Connacht are not putting out a stronger team (no disrespect to those named)
    Also, will be even more surprised if anyone makes a comment about the Fields of Athenry that is even marginally funny for either side.....


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,419 ✭✭✭ evil_seed


    So is Copeland injured? Or not good enough? Or what?
    Is Godwin injured?
    Bundee was always getting a rest for this having played the other 2.

    That's a strong Munster team, but their away form isn't great so here's hoping

    Proper rugby talk getting drowned by "banter" about a stupid song

    I think it's a good sign for Wycherley that he doesn't feature. He must be close to the Euro 23 now.

    Can't produce players have to steel them from other provinces, can't produce songs have to steel them from other provinces. Sad!

    If Loughman scrums well I'd worried, it could be the stupid red that colours my judgement but I dont rate DRM that highly recently. Although better to have Bealham against a fresh Kilcoyne maybe. Roux in though may still give us an edge there.

    Thornbury/Roux imo is our strongest second row at the moment, Dillane is playing well and should add some momentum from the bench

    Daly at 12 is interesting, surprised we didnt go with him in Europe first and give Godwin this one but maybe theres a knock.

    Roux and Kleyn is going to be spicy - two brilliant bullies at ruck time


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,775 ✭✭✭ shootermacg


    Really hope Farrell gets though this with no injuries. It will be exciting to see him starting alongside Goggin.

    He really needs to start playing regularly now, will be interesting to see where he's at.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,305 ✭✭✭ Dubinusa


    Good to see Gallagher back. Same with Farrell.
    I think it's going to be a good one. Interesting to see what Daly can bring to Connacht.

    Biggest fixture in the Pro14 for a while.

    Osprey's V Cardiff a big one too at 3


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 14,138 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Zzippy


    Surprised we haven't gone fully loaded for this. Butler, SOB, Bealham, Godwin would be a big difference IMO, obv Bundee too but he's not available. Think Munster pack esp back row will dominate and starve us of possession. We can win alright but I'd give it 60-40 Munster looking at the teams selected. Hoping Tom can win the battle of the Farrells again :)

    Do you think neither of Butler Copeland or SOB were able to play 20 off the bench? Or did Gallagher impressed in training? Hope the latter




    Nobody's talking about De Buitlear. Tough ask to come into such a game.
    Huge for Horwitz too, if one of our centres goes off, he will cover 12


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


    Glasgow have lost again. Munster could go top of Conference A with a win tonight.
