    I was hoping Ethan Coughlan would be making his debut this week :(

    I imagine he'll get a run at some stage over the next while.

    Salanoa's first start, I think. Looking forward to seeing how he goes.


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


    I'd have liked Ahern to get the start but hopefully he gets 25-30 minutes.

    Plenty experience on that bench in case things go awry.


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


    A big game from Healy could see him become first choice outhalf for the rest of the season

    Yeah, hopefully, be great to see him get a run although it is very early in his career. I'd imagine if he wasn't injured earlier in the season that he'd be more likely to get a run in this game.

    That's a super team to put out, great mix and we get to have a look at the young lads. Delighted!


  • Subscribers Posts: 36,271 ✭✭✭✭ sydthebeat


    That's a decent Treviso team, but they are playing like a drain this season


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,052 ✭✭✭ arsebiscuits1


    Paddy Patterson straight into the fire.

    Hope it goes well for him.

    His passing and kicking for Leinster A were not good the other week. But he brings a lot of tempo


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


    There is a lot of experience coming off the bench for Munster, I'd like to think they can win this comfortably even if it becomes a dogfight.
    It's only Nick McCarthy's second start of the season and it's a big series of games for him.

    Salanoa out. Archer starts with Ryan on the bench.

    That's a real shame

    The one player I was looking forward to seeing getting a good run


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


    Absolute gift of a try.


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


    That first penalty was fortunate enough too. Great start


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,052 ✭✭✭ arsebiscuits1


    Absolute gift of a try.

    Hayward marginally unlucky but made an absolute dogs dinner of it


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


    Benetton on 3 penalties conceded already I think.


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


    Good play off the turnover after losing the ball near the line earlier.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,194 ✭✭✭✭ Akrasia


    Nice broken play try there


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,052 ✭✭✭ arsebiscuits1


    Very little change on the maul for Munster

    What a try that is.


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


    Maul hasn't been great so far. Some nice offloading there for the 2nd try


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,052 ✭✭✭ arsebiscuits1


    Lovely try!!

    3 top quality offloads in a row.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,052 ✭✭✭ arsebiscuits1


    At first glance Coombes and Goggin look extremely similar


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


    Lol who does a box kick when your 20 yards from the try line off a maul.


  • Registered Users Posts: 106 ✭✭ MaddChris


    Mccarthy charged down twice already.

    Also, tv director needs to cop on. Nobody wants to see coach's faces in the middle of a line out throw.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,686 ✭✭✭ aloooof


    Liam Coombes having a very good game so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,194 ✭✭✭✭ Akrasia


    A more switched on side would have kept that penalty in field. Healy living dangerously


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


    You get a buzz cut and you get a buzz cut
