    Munster looking to bounce back from defeat against Connacht to keep themselves in with a shout of the Rainbow Cup final

    Munster have gone for a an experienced starting 15 with a relatively young bench

    Cardiff themselves are still in the running and have picked a reasonably strong team

    Halaholo has often caused trouble against Munster so Scannell and DDA will have to be on the ball.

    Turnbull and Botham in the Blues backrow can cause havoc at breakdown time

    Final game at Thomond Park for Cronin, Stander and O'Donnell

    Surprised that "flat" pass isn't being looked at.

    Lol Andy with the five second rule

    Marginal I'd say... would prefer the attacking team was given the benefit in those situations anyways tbh.


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


    For me it was one of those that wasn't obviously forward. TMO would have a tough time overturning that


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,353 ✭✭✭ schmoo2k


    Captain could have queried it, but sounds like it would have been wasted?

    Awful penalty from Scannell.


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


    Giving up soft penalties in the opposition 22 again


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,587 ✭✭✭✭ 2smiggy


    Niall Scannell gives away some very stupid penalties


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


    Thought LH blue collapsed that one IMO


  • Registered Users Posts: 471 ✭✭ MurDawg


    Crazy call from linesman. Blues at fault in that scrum

    50 50 but archers feet were way too far back

    Not happening this evening... Munster look jaded and off the pace.

    The sooner that South African bluffer of a head coach leaves for pastures new, will be a godsend.


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


    This is dire stuff from Munster.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 486 ✭✭ Shaka Hislop


    Rory scannell forgot how to put foot to ball there.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,585 ✭✭✭ degsie


    Disjointed stuff from Munster, heads not in the game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,087 ✭✭✭ lawrencesummers


    To describe this as turgid would be a compliment.

    JVG needs a kick in the hole.

    After the last performance and with some key players playing their last home game there should be no shortage of motivation but munster have the intensity of a pre season friendly

    Where is Henry Ford III this evening? He promised us big Munster news recently but none has been forthcoming, or at least hasn't been in the public domain.

    That about sums up this half

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


    Uncharacteristic from DDA - sums up the half so far really


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


    Great work by Casey and a counter-ruck.
    That's better


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 486 ✭✭ Shaka Hislop


    First bit of good play pays dividends.


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


    Great shot by TOD and Cronin. Growing into it a small bit - reckon CJ let fly at a few heads in the huddle before the first try.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,547 ✭✭✭ accensi0n


    Should the Cardiff player get a yellow for the shoulder charge into the maul?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,438 ✭✭✭ tabby aspreme


    Great kick by Carbery


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,973 ✭✭✭✭ PTH2009


    Thats more like it


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 486 ✭✭ Shaka Hislop


    That's more like it.


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


    Great carry by DDA.

    DDA kept his eye on it that time. Made it look easy.
