    That's a strong Blues backrow

    Stronger Munster team than I thought it would be

    Good to have Daly back from Irish camp

    Chance for O'Sullivan to impress after Coombes grabbing the headlines this year

    Joey :D

    Oh yes! Hopefully Haley, Nash and Daly get a chance to show their stuff. Kevin O'Byrne rightfully starting. Looking forward to seeing JOS get a proper run out. Good to see Salanoa on bench. And...of course...Joey!

    🤪

    I don't think it's a case of KOB rightfully starting, I'd say it's nothing more than rotation.

    Happy to see Joey back for us and as mentioned elsewhere I'd have loved to seen Ethan Coughlan on the bench, hopefully, he'll get an opportunity before the end of the season.

    If it was just rotation then you would think Marshall would be on the bench. Still looking forward to seeing KOB start tho....

    Ratty, Fish, drink water, belcher... more a cryptic crossword than a subs bench

    Reminds me must get back on duolingo.

    I think 15 minutes for Carbery is plenty tonight. Fingers crossed for him.

    Q's on Shane Daly

    Where would he rank in running speed?
    1. Earls
    2. Conway
    3. Sweetnam
    4. Haley
    5. Daly
    6. Nash

    Gallagher, Coombes, French and Wren in there somewhere too?
    Rory Scannell is supposedly very quick for a centre too, I wonder if he would be comparable to any of the wingers.

    It's a pity Thomas Ahern missed out through injury. On that pitch you'd love to see him getting a chance to carry the ball.

    Ah here

    Welsh 9 is classy.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,436 ✭✭✭ tabby aspreme


    Looked like obstruction in the lead up to that try

    He's a quality passer that's for sure

    Twice now Mccarthy breaks the line but gets turned over cos the support is slow.


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


    Lineout struggling so far.


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


    Messy, scrappy...need to sort out the silly errors quickly


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


    This match so far sums up every Wales Ireland clash the last 6-7 years, the Irish team dominating yet the welsh team are the ones with points to show for it...

    So many basic errors

    Line out badly malfunctioning

    Need to improve soon


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,458 ✭✭✭ budhabob


    KOB is most definitely the form 2 in the country.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,002 ✭✭✭ CMcsporty


    O’Byrne having another good game
    Playmaker extraordinaire!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,025 ✭✭✭ Former Former Former


    McCarthy is having a good game


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,942 ✭✭✭✭ razorblunt


    Turnbull straight to ground and then completely sealing off by Cardiff.
    Officials pot lucking the ruck penalties (for both sides).


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


    That wasn't backwards!


  • Subscribers Posts: 36,214 ✭✭✭✭ sydthebeat


    Munster need to get the ball in de allandes hands more. He's a genuine break that but a lot of back play is bypassing him


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


    Filth from Cloete 🤣


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,487 ✭✭✭ almostover


    Hanrahan very poor in that phase, watching the ball on the chase back and doesn't offer himself for a clearing kick. Leaves it to the left footer on his wrong side.

    Pitch reminds me of QPR's from the 80's ... bounce is absolutely rubbish
