    Who is Kenyan Knox? That's a wonderful name

    Very solid backrow, considering we've a few away at the RWC.

    I think he (along with Matt More) was one of the SA's young lads signed out of school.

    20 year old SA prop who we brought over after Craven week two years ago. Has one more year in the academy, but has already signed a 3 year professional contract to start when he finishes in the academy.

    Don't particularly like that midfield.

    Could have put Daly at 13 and Coombes on the wing.

    Nice team other than that.

    Are Goggin and Arnold both injured?

    Both picked up knocks last week and were being reviewed through the week. Not sure if any more was released than that

    Munster have their own #TB12. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 515 ✭✭✭ mogwai81


    Both quality players, but it must be one of the smallest lock partnerships Munster have ever had in the professional era.

    It's Keynan not Kenyan

    Munster A:
    Jack Crowley; Jonathan Wren, Alex McHenry, Jack Delaney, Rob Hedderman; Ben Healy (C), Craig Casey;
    Peter McCabe, Scott Buckley, James Kendrick; Seán O’Connor, Thomas Ahern; Dave Hyland, John Hodnett, Cian Hurley.

    Replacements: Kieran O’Shea, Mark Donnelly, Luke Masters, Daniel Okeke, Kelvin Brown, Jack Stafford, Seán French, Jamie Shanahan.

    That gives you an idea of the current depth chart.
    Peter McCabe still with Munster.

    Scannell at 13 will be very interesting.
    Should suit him much better, more space than at 12.


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


    Looking forward to this, particularly as Ireland vs Japan was called off.

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


    Not much to report so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    A few silly errors but we look good when in attack.


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


    Hibbard in trouble here.

    Shoulder to shoulder. If Hibard is red carded it's a disgrace.

    Not a harsh yellow at all, he was already tackled and fat Thor went in to do damage.


  • Registered Users Posts: 736 ✭✭✭ damianmcr


    Good shout by the ref to check that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Three trips to the 22, three scores....


  • Registered Users Posts: 794 ✭✭✭ Rockbeast2


    Munster should run in 50+ today.


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


    Cracking try from Daly.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,366 ✭✭✭ yerrahbah

    He's seems to be playing with more aggression. Great bench to come on in the second half too :)
