    Crowley getting a start, nice.

  • Registered Users Posts: 455 ✭✭SUAF_1879

    Feel a little sorry for Flannery. After being an un-used sub last week, you would expect him to get minutes this week.

    Liking the look of the replacement front row.

    The rotation and selections this season have been great.

    Crowley has a massive opportunity now.

    Beirne selected at 6 is wise to keep him versatile.

    O’Mahony making way at 6 to move to 7 is interesting, also keeps him versatile.

    O’Donoghue at 8 at last, his remarkable athleticism will shine there hopefully.

    Good to see Hodnett back, Achilles reconstruction was a very difficult injury to overcome.

    Would be interesting if Gavin Coombes came on at second row but would expect not with Beirne able to shift in there.

    Liam Coombes gets another chance to impress, likewise Gallagher.

    Daly will be keen to perform well after his exclusion from the Irish squad.

    De Allende and Murray will each get a few minutes hopefully to re-familiarise with the team.

    19 for Ospreys is Jack Regan, son of the Offaly hurler, Daithí.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,011 ✭✭✭TomsOnTheRoof

    Crowley very impressive so far.

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    webb being allowed a fortune of time at the back of rucks.

    That’s a frustrating penalty, warranted of course but 2 phases earlier when Casey tackled the prop, the support runner flopped over to seal preventing Wycherley/Beirne from getting at it.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,011 ✭✭✭TomsOnTheRoof

    Agreed, also the Osprey's loose head went straight across on the last scrum.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,029 ✭✭✭KrustyUCC

    Poor from Munster to reverse the penalty

  • Registered Users Posts: 160 ✭✭NotCarrotRidge

    Ospreys are not all that great, but Munster not figuring out the ref at all.

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    Didn’t see much from Loughman to reverse it, munster need to be squeaky clean with her now. Instead they’ll probably double down on their stupidity

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    Any reversal there, no? Of course not. She’ll chase one no doubt to even it out.

    scrum was a joke, Ospreys loose head went straight across almost immediately.

  • Registered Users Posts: 99 ✭✭joedamuss

    Munster playing shite, only positive so far is young Crowley, we might have to get the cavalry on.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,835 ✭✭✭OldRio

    Watching the game on Prem Sport. This commentator is wrecking my fecking head.

    Munster need a collective kick up the hole at half time. Ospreys should be put to the sword.

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    Penalty from the kick off .. Jesus wept

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,029 ✭✭✭KrustyUCC

    Doesn't look like half time team talk was that effective

    Silly penalty and a turnover within the first 2 mins

    Munster need to wake up

    Ripped on the floor, no?

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,325 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers

    Coombes and DDa on 50 mins please….

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    whats the most phases Munster have gone through? Can’t be more than half a dozen.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,361 ✭✭✭✭DDC1990

    This is a hard watch.

    Munster a shambles so far. Ospreys are very poor and there for the taking but Munster are shocking in attack and discipline is very poor.

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    props need to be changed now, that front row won’t change her mind on anything. Cut them loose.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,029 ✭✭✭KrustyUCC

    Big try

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,361 ✭✭✭✭DDC1990

    Seriously powerful maul.

    Big kick ahead and calm heads from the restart hopefully.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,029 ✭✭✭KrustyUCC

    Very poor from Casey just after the try

  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt

    Passing has been muck all night.

    Ospreys have upped it since Munsters try.

    Need a bit of luck now.
