    Terrible timing for the James Cronin injury.

    Not sure I understand Marshall starting over KO'B

    Daly will need to hit the ground running.

    Was always going to be a really tough game, it just got that bit tougher.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,039 ✭✭✭ UAEguy2020


    Its been put back 3 hours due to the La Rochelle postponment.


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


    Can someone change the time? I can't on the phone.

    Really hope this is true, currently clashing with the All-Ireland.

    La Rochelle is off due to covid which means that this match is now taking the TV slot that La Rochelle was going to have.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,013 ✭✭✭ irelandrover


    La rochelle was at 4:15 french time. Who takes the TV slot that Munster had as it was the only game at that time?

    I’m guessing it’s the big game on French TV also it’s taking the prime time slot.

    Curious where you've seen this? As haven't seen a change announced on Twitter or on the Munster site.

    Interesting to see Yato named at lock. Always thought he was a backrower. Would have thought he was a bit small for lock. Before anyone says anything, I realise he isn't a small man but he would be undersized for a lock.

    This game was announced back in November as 18:30 French time.
    It is still 18:30 French time.

    In fairness, the Clermont team sheet in the second post says 1615 French time


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,307 ✭✭✭ bennyl10


    Wait so has the game been moved?

    CC site still says 5.30 irish/6.30eu

    he’s a bit on the light side but he is apparently 6”5. might have put on some weight lately too. French rugby culture seems far more willing to move aging flankers into the row to extend their careers.

    FAKE EDIT never mind he’s only 27. can only assume it’s tactical then.

    Clermont are threadbare at second Row atm due to injuries to Tamani and Vahamahina so had ton resort to Yato.

    He’s there because they literally have no one else to play second Row.

    i mean i’ll do it, i guess.

    Yato's a super player and have no doubt he can do a good job around the park. But surely Munster have to aim to put massive pressure on Clermont's lineout?

    Yato's only 27?? I'd have lost money on that...

    Thats what I was I was thinking. And they should definitely go after their scrum.
    He's Fijian so there is absolutely no doubt he can do a good job around the park :D Need to target him in the set piece.

    I wouldn't follow the French league much, but I'd assume Iturria is injured as well, is he?


  • Registered Users Posts: 53 ✭✭ agoodusername


    I don't know how to link a tweet but the Clermont twitter said that it's still on at 6.30 French time, and that the team sheet was a mistake.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,696 ✭✭✭ fonecrusher1


    Game still on at 5.30 / 6.30 as it stands. I'd love if it was on earlier.

    I don’t know a huge amount either, I was just hearing from a Clermont fan on the Munster forum, I presume so to as he’s a name that stands out to me also.

    Not a good start


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,013 ✭✭✭ irelandrover


    Well that's not the best start


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,089 ✭✭✭ TRC10


    Tough start for Coombes, knock on and missed tackle for the try.
