    Thanks for posting OP.

    Bookmakers have Munster to lose by 8 which sounds about right. I'd absolutely take a LBP from this. It should be a fun watch!

    Going by previous results, a TBP is more likely than a LPB :P

    Coming away from SA with 6 points would be grand.

    As a matter of interest what odds had the bookmakers on the Glasgow and Ulster games there?

    Glasgow were -6, not sure about Ulster.

    Marshall in the bin and 7 nil to Cheetahs


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Ball lost in the maul, ref gives Pienaar 15 seconds to find the ball instead of awarding Munster a scrum :confused:


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,781 ✭✭✭ PetKing


    The two lads commentating should just head down to the pitch and get the shift with the Cheetahs out of the way, seriously like


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Cheetahs back three being targeted well, they're crap under high balls
    Keep it up

    Penalty against Munster: "Good decision by the ref there"
    Penalty against Cheetahs: "Interesting decision, not sure about that"



    :rolleyes:

    Doing a very good job at controlling the pace of the game, not getting sukered into a loose display.


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


    We're in this one lads!


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


    Not watching but 7-6 down despite copping a YC sounds good?


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


    I think I'll die before I'll ever have a clue what that penalty is for.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Daly caught out there, have to trust your teammate inside to make the tackle.


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

    Ref gave a penalty for god knows what, then at least 1 forward pass for the cheetah's try.


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


    9 - 12 at half time. Brilliant pacing by Munster.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    I'd take 12-9 at half time.
    If we can keep the penalty count down there is a win for the taking here.


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


    I'd be dropping bombs on their back 3 all next half.


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


    Targeting the back 3 well.
    Good performance so far

    Loving our backplay, offloading and a bit of variety in attack is what has been missing. Very early days but you can see what they're trying to do. Marry that with our standard of forward play and that'll move us up a level this season


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


    Mike Haley can certainly tackle.

    I actually like them, they’re positive and will call out good play from both sides


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


    Great pressure from sweets there


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


    Feck, that was some turnover and pressure by the cheetahs.

    19-9


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Decided not to play our game and look what happens


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


    Not too impressed by Nick McCarthy

    Edit: subbed at 49 mins


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


    Jaysus, scrum absolutely demolished there.


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


    That must be driving up! archer's legs actually left the ground in that scrum!

    Front row needs replacing, minced in the scrum
