    Munster:
    Mike Haley; Calvin Nash, Chris Farrell, Dan Goggin, Darren Sweetnam; JJ Hanrahan, Craig Casey;
    James Cronin, Kevin O’Byrne, Stephen Archer; Fineen Wycherley, Billy Holland (C); Arno Botha, Chris Cloete, Jack O’Sullivan.

    Replacements: Diarmuid Barron, Jeremy Loughman, John Ryan, Gavin Coombes, John Hodnett, Nick McCarthy, Rory Scannell, Tommy O’Donnell.

    Player News
    Niall Scannell suffered a low grade knee injury against Zebre last week that has ruled him out of Saturday’s clash, the injury is expected to be a short-term one.

    Shane Daly underwent a scan earlier this week that showed a low grade groin strain. The injury prevented him from training this week but he will be a travelling reserve on Saturday.

    Jack O’Donoghue aggravated an existing neck issue at the end of last week that hadn’t settled sufficiently to allow him train fully this week and therefore was not considered for selection.

    The 6-2 bench split is back :pac:

    The two SA boys in the backrow to help out O'Sullivan

    That is a very mobile bench to bring on

    Good news on Niall Scannell it looked nasty at the time



    Does anyone know of anywhere in Westport that would be showing this?

    If Benetton x2 turns into two nils-nils then that's not great alright...

    The worst of the weather is currently forecast to have passed by lunchtime. It's due to be dry during the match.

    I can't see us travelling to Treviso, they might be allowed travel to our home game.

    We'll see what happens the Cardiff v Zebre game

    BP win for Munster on the cards here.


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


    Weather is looking grim. Getting a BP will be tricky.

    Very small crowd by the looks of things, or would there be a lot more people in the stand the camera is in?

    Yeah I’d say the conditions put off a lot of people.

    Munsters discipline has been poor so far.

    not a great start for munster lots of basic errors

    100kph winds, 3 degrees and pissing rain all day. I'd usually be there but said I'd give it a miss today.

    Cloete is a liability


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,263 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Scarlets have won two of Munsters lineouts so far and eked a scrum penalty

    He's a very good poacher, but that's the only notable part of his game. He's so ill disciplined. Penalty machine and a completely ineffective carrier.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,945 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    No arms by Shingler


  • Registered Users Posts: 334 ✭✭ sliabh 1956


    That was a hard earned 3 points


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,902 ✭✭✭ letowski


    Good vision by Casey there with that kick through.

    Well that Scarlets lad is getting sent off.


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


    Well Cloete's handbags are going to lead to a red for Scarlets.

    5 Scarlets started it all too. Complete idiot.


  • Registered Users Posts: 334 ✭✭ sliabh 1956


    surely red to the scarlet


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,272 ✭✭✭ theVersatile


    Thug.


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


    Two punches to the head. No option.


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


    There's the first. TBP should be the goal now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,092 ✭✭✭ OldRio


    Well to be honest. Sat at home, listening to the wood crackle on an open fire, whiskey in hand. I have to say I'm rather enjoying the game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,607 ✭✭✭✭ stephen_n


    Haley got away with that one, definitely took a step across

    Conditions are awful, but Munster aren't performing well at all. Especially as it's against 14 men.
