    Hooker David Cherry – who made his Test debut in the national side’s Calcutta Cup win over England at Twickenham – second-row stalwart and co-captain Grant Gilchrist and stand-off Jaco van der Walt will all start the Guinness PRO14 clash following their fallow week release from the international championship.

    Pretty strong looking team. Great to see Conway back, think that's his first game in awhile?

    Great to have him back

    Played again Harlequins Dec 13th, hasn't featured since

    The likes of Coombes, Casey and Daly will be looking to catch the attention of Farrell ahead of the Italy game

    Would have started KOB for the above reasons to maybe get a look in at Irish camp. Hope it’s not going to revert back to the NScannell show with our best hookers KOB & Marshall having to share 5 minutes off the bench.

    Strong team. Great to see Conway back and hopefully himself and Daly go well. Would have liked to see O'Byrne at 2 - he's been great this season. Maybe he'll get a run against a tiring team and get to show off the silky hands :D

    🤪

    Delighted to see Conway back, probably too late for him to make claim for a 6Ns spot but here's hoping.


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


    No experimenting in that lineup by Munster. Connacht aren't mathematically gone yet and I don't think we can count on the season ending in March given the current Covid situation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 870 ✭✭✭ TomsOnTheRoof


    Delighted for Conway but disappointed overall. I don't see how Scannell deserves to be starting ahead of O'Byrne and having Archer on the bench, especially considering his last performance, is a wasted opportunity. Likewise, given that we have fly half covered on the bench I think Rory is fortunate enough. I know the lads just signed two year contracts but I find it hard to fathom personally.

    No Crowley?

    Good looking backline. Should make easy work of Edinburgh.

    Ah, you've fallen for the classic Munster ruse - we'll likely win in the final few mins with a dropgoal or clutch try!

    Decent starting XV for Edinburgh, backs on the bench not so much.
    Big fan of Crosbie.


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


    A 10 point wind I'd say!


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


    Bump.

    Cloete involved early


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


    Cloete pinged early.

    Neck roll on Farrell not pinged.
    Stall set out by the ref early.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,318 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    Edinburgh starting pretty well, to be fair to them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,240 ✭✭✭ sioda


    How many times have you to be asked to use it by the ref.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,705 ✭✭✭ The Inbetween is mine


    Use it..use.it...use it...refs need to cut that out.. penalise the delay and that will end it pdq

    Watched RK play this morning with the Force in Super Rugby AU. Commentator mentioned that there is a new hard 5 sec rule for box kicks etc from the first Use It. Hardly any box kicks....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,705 ✭✭✭ The Inbetween is mine


    The wind really held JJ's kick up there

    I thought they might play this in mini Murrayfield.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,667 ✭✭✭ aloooof


    Some good stuff in the last 10 mins.


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


    Schoeman offside by a mile.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,705 ✭✭✭ The Inbetween is mine


    That was the second try we scored there I'd say


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,240 ✭✭✭ sioda


    Set pieces looking excellent tonight tbf


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,705 ✭✭✭ The Inbetween is mine


    O'Donoghue touched the line there?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,240 ✭✭✭ sioda


    O'Donoghue touched the line there?

    I thought so


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,705 ✭✭✭ The Inbetween is mine


    Keep up the workrate here and we could really hurt them tonight


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,240 ✭✭✭ sioda


    Surprised no yellow for Edinburgh at this stage

    Munster are getting a good return on counter rucks too many Edinburgh lads just setting for the sake of it.
