    Great to see Jack O'Sullivan getting an opportunity to start and Craig Casey will hopefully get 20-25 minutes.
    James Cronin makes his first start after a long-term injury.

    Really liked the look of O'Sullivan every time I've seen him.

    Hope he has a massive season


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,683 ✭✭✭ aloooof


    Cronin's chance now to establish himself as the back-up when Alby leaves. The SH selections so far this season strongly suggest his contract won't be renewed post-November.

    Holloway's first start as well?

    I would really doubt Alby would be here past November

    We have
    Murray
    McCarthy
    Cronin
    Casey

    We are well stocked at SH

    Alby is only a few years into his short term contract though :pac::pac:

    He's a good player. But time to start developing the 3 promising options behind Murray

    Jed Holloway?
    I was thinking who the hell is he. Jed? he can’t be Irish!
    Missed him been signed.
    Kleyn needs a few games to get rid of the rust!

    No internationals back until the Ulster game.

    Alby is definitely going unless there is a injury curse in the next few weeks. One of the best temporary signings Munster have ever made.

    I'm delighted to see Casey in. Hopefully he can make 10-15 appearances this season.

    Weather is miserable and doesn't look like its going to improve.
    Added to that having all ticket prices bumped isn't going to help turnout. €30 for a Pro14 terrace ticket?

    All games in Cork last year were sold out, why introduce early prices now?

    Prices haven't been bumped up this season, you just left it so late to buy. Munster have been running dynamic pricing for a few years now. The closer it gets to selling out the more expensive the remaining tickets get. You can get terrace tickets for the next game in Cork (Edinburgh) for €22.50. Terrace tickets for the Ulster game in Limerick are €25.

    Terrace tickets (minus any booking fee) last year were €20 all the way up to nearly kickoff. Have receipts to prove it.
    Same ticket is not €25

    Should be a reasonably comfortable home win with 4 try bonus point.

    From yesterday. North/South terrace tickets for €20. East Terrace tickets for €25. I paid €25 for East Terrace last season.

    My mistake


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,233 ✭✭✭ Yeah_Right


    On current form I'd keep Alby and let Murray go.

    I see the plan to build towards 2023 is quickly forgotten......it only took 6 days....has to be a new record

    Ah here, Shef, please don't start this again. Alby has only started 1 of our 3 games this season. McCarthy has had more minutes. He isn't even in the squad for this game! Munster are doing exactly what you've been calling for, but you still want to hammer them!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,051 ✭✭✭ Dbu


    ****e evening for a game lads. Dolphin for a hot toddy might be in order

    Think you might need to download the latest version/update the App. Happened me yesterday

    Thanks for that, I meant to say that I am trying to watch it on my laptop on their awful website that only works on internet feckin explorer.

    On their website, all they have is a video telling me to download a new app. I didn't switch to Eir so I can watch the rugby on a 7 inch iphone screen, and Iphones don't do streaming to smart tvs

    I'm really annoyed


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


    They have a licence to play! Nice passing there!


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,592 ✭✭✭✭ 2smiggy


    Happy enough that high shot was only a penelty, if only they could keep up that consistency


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


    Goggin has some strength


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,599 ScrubsfanChris


    Poor intercept

    Ref starting with a few dodgy calls. That wasn't a maul and he also called Jack's pick-up wrong.
