    Be nice to see some of the young guns from the win away to wasps getting a run in games like this

  • Registered Users Posts: 481 ✭✭SUAF_1879

    Would like to see Buckley, Ahern, Kendellen and Flannery be involved in this one.

    I would imagine with the Irish U20's squad due to be announced today, we might not see too many of the Wasp's away contingent.

    Loving this, exactly the type of game to give the young lads a go. Not a single player over 30.

    Average age of starting 15: 25.2

    Average age of 23: 24.5

    Very youthful team, should be good to see them get a run out together. Zebre have a habit of losing ugly at home. Especially if the weather is bad. Hopefully it’s a dry day.

    Scrappy enough so far, but some good play there for that try.

    Hodnett, Nash and Cronin going well. Unfortunate for Flannery.

  • Registered Users Posts: 24,737 ✭✭✭✭Strumms

    Officials seemingly unable to spot forward passes even if the ball is a meter forward.

  • Registered Users Posts: 22,202 ✭✭✭✭Akrasia

    Nervy 1st 20 mins, played much better after that. Flannery will learn from that mistake.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,896 ✭✭✭OldRio

    Tight enough beginning but Munster starting to put things together.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,614 ✭✭✭✭Eod100

    Try bonus got. Took bit longer than expected.

    Good shifts from F Wycherley, Hodnett, Jod and Cronin, most others were decent without setting the world alight, not great to see Salanoa getting taken apart in the scrums towards the end.

    Flannery looks to have a very cultured boot on him, picking the right time to pass will come with game time.

    Poor enough game from us, some of it can be excused by all the changes but some of these lads need to be pushing for places in the match day 23 of our regular teams and no one really stood out tonight.

    Main thing is we got out BP win. Quick review on Monday and move on.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,098 ✭✭✭Poorside

    Goggin pushed himself forward, especially with DDA heading off,Hodnett has certainly put down another marker at 7 and JOS was powerful enough to not be worried if he ended up starting a HEC knockout game.

  • Registered Users Posts: 23,617 ✭✭✭✭phog

    Goggin is one of my favorite players but I thought he like the rest of them last night was ok, nothing special from any of them. Hodnett is Hodnett and we know he's destined for a starting place, the question is who drops out to make way.

    I suppose with so much change its hard to keep cohesion but I thought we had too many unforced errors that killed a few opportunities that would have allowed players like Goggin, Nash or Daly to shine.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,439 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers

    Hodnett to me is a nailed on sub all day every day for big games. He is the best backrow we have that able to find and exploit a gap as we have seen in almost all his games, and he can pressure the breakdown almost as well as beirne.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,900 ✭✭✭leakyboots

    He has serious pace, very exciting prospect
