    Need to steady the ship here. Stormers have been poor so let's not give them a sniff.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,619 ✭✭✭Eoinbmw

    Feck that we are getting nothing of this ref!

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,548 ✭✭✭blackwhite

    Getting away with taking out the 9 there made up for the Coombes penalty.

  • Registered Users Posts: 36,197 ✭✭✭✭LuckyLloyd

    Not sure Stormers have been poor, more like Munster have just suffocated them

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,913 ✭✭✭realhorrorshow

    Huge stop there.

    I'd say that score is fair enough at half time. Intensity through the roof, Munster should be happy enough with that, can see them closing this out the final 20.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,510 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers

    Denis leamy is **** brilliant.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,396 ✭✭✭standardg60

    That's a big win, I'd have taken the 3 there

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,800 ✭✭✭TheRona

    That was a great first half. Munster really should be a couple of scores ahead.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,544 ✭✭✭Ardillaun

    Stout maul defence by Munster there.

    Brilliant defending from Munster

    Honestly an incredible half from them and hugely disappointing to just be 5 up

  • Registered Users Posts: 373 ✭✭JimmyCorkhill

    Munster playing really well, unlucky not to have more on the scoreboard.

    Cannot believe how average the Stormers are, some of them look unfit. 9 & 10 are all over the shop at times for them. Their aerial game is non-existent - losing nearly every box kick from either team.

    A fairly outstanding first half by Munster. After the early try, they dominated and were close to adding a try or two to their well deserved lead.

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,816 ✭✭✭✭Clegg

    Jantjies has been so, so bad. Chasm in quality between Murray and he.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,619 ✭✭✭Eoinbmw

    Some very harsh calls against us that half!

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,593 ✭✭✭eigrod

    Totally dominant by Munster for 35 minutes. Little things prevented them being 15 or so up.

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,603 ✭✭✭Former Former Former


    Stormers are completely reliant on Libbok for ideas, keep shutting him down and they're done.

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,510 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers

    The good thing about not being further ahead is we know we can outplay them and we have to come out and do it, we cant be sitting back trying to protect a lead

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,012 ✭✭✭✭AbusesToilets

    liked that Crowley came in immediately after the try and corralled Nash, telling him to think. Intelligent stuff, good sign

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,510 ✭✭✭lawrencesummers

    Another performance like the first half and we are the best team in the Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Italy and South Africa.

    That performance merits a 10+ point lead. And we have the fitness to do it all over again in the second half.

    I reckon Casey will have huge impact as Stormers continue to tire, as will Kendellen.

    Unless Stormers suddenly turn into a top-end test side, this one won't even be close by the end.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,544 ✭✭✭Ardillaun

    There’s a lot to be cheerful about so far. Slick passing, great mauling, solid scrums.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,230 ✭✭✭ulsteru20s

    I can’t understand the coombes no try. There is no double movement. Or at least if there was one, then we need to call off a ton of ‘place the ball’ tries.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,619 ✭✭✭Eoinbmw

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,603 ✭✭✭Former Former Former

    On the heavy pitch, Stormers will run out of gas very quickly and Munster have the better bench.

    Did we only have one scrum in the first half?

    Munster by 15, Roos to get a second yellow

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,619 ✭✭✭Eoinbmw

    Feck off ref he was held in

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,034 ✭✭✭KrustyUCC

    Murray needs to get more length in his kicks

    Libbok having one of those days again.

    Poor goal kicker.
