Gla have their 5pts (no surprise) to go top and i think the positions won't change after today.

Munster are on 58. Glasgow are on 61

Munster's run in is a bit better than Glasgow
Glasgow
Home to Cheetahs 5 points
Home to Ulster 4 points
Away to Leinster 0/1 points
Home to Edinburgh 4 points

Munster
Home to Zebre 5 points
Home to Blues 5 points
Away to Treviso 4 points
Home to Connacht 4 points


That would leave Glasgow on 74/5 and Munster on 76

Munster have a way higher PD than Glasgow
We have to beat Treviso away and connacht at home, but they are do-able

I see them getting 5 from Edi while we will get 4 from Blues. Treviso are not the walkover they were up to recently. We, even at full complement, do not travel well which doesn't bode well for that game.
I hope i'm wrong but i think we've surrendered the lead and we won't get it back.

Munster should win in Treviso if they send their first team. Send a similar line up to tonight and they may well lose.

The other issue is that Leinster could completely phone it in now they've topped the pool. Glasgow could well get a win in Dublin. Last season, Treviso won in Dublin and Connacht put 40 on Leinster once top spot was secured.

A TBP vs. Cardiff might be an ask as it's six days after the QF and Munster go to Benetton in the following round. Munster will have to prioritise the trip to Italy.

I assume Leinster will put out a string enough side against Glasgow as it falls the week before their potential HCC SF.

Munsters away form has been really good in the 2nd half of the season. I think we can afford to drop 2 bps and still top the group on pd

Should...but players will need resting after the 6N and those who have played a lot in the interim. Botha has put in a lot of mins iirc.

We beat Conn; destroyed Dragons by 1 pt (7-8)...Dragons!; beat a poor Glou and scraped past Osp last week despite beating them by 30 or 36 pts in the first leg. Our away form has improved in a minute way.

Our home performances have been good but overall, the 18/19 season won't be remembered for travelling well.

Not getting at you personally but the whole hero whorshipping of Keatley is getting a bit over the top, he was an average player for Munster at best, never shone, JJ Hanrahan was always far superior, I was in Thomond Park when he was booed and while it wasn't in keeping with the Munster ethos I felt in a way it was fully deserved, there's far better number tens than him out there and I'm glad the management finally coped on to that

Keatley was inconsistent but could be good, he was the better option between himself and JJ though.
