I missed that, a big loss if he's missing for the Racing game. Would this be Loughman's first European start so?

It's official. Sad to hear in a way. Brought plenty of energy and some of that NZ flair. Loved his infamous quick throw in.

Thought Cronin and himself were going to come to blows at end of Ospreys game though any time we were awarded a penalty and Alby looked like he was going to tap I enjoyed his enthusiasm for upping the pace, but yeah my heart often skipped a beat when he appeared beside the penalty spot and got ball in hand!

That's a pity, even if we had him longer than expected, he's been a great signing for us.


The very best of luck to him.

That makes me sad. I've always liked him as a player. Unfortunately he never seemed to be able to settle at a team for any length of time. Always moved on after a season or 2. I have no idea why.

Would have loved it if he had come to Munster a few years ago and been able to spend a good few seasons as Murray's back-up. He seemed to really buy in to Munster.

Great signing. Hard to believe he played the ABs game in Thomond in 2008 (11 years ago today actually!)

On the injury front, JJ Hanrahan and Rhys Marshall will be re-integrated to training this week.

Continuing to rehab: Chris Cloete (RTPP), Dave Kilcoyne (calf), Joey Carbery (ankle) Ciaran Parker (calf), Darren Sweetnam (hamstring).

https://www.munsterrugby.ie/2019/11/...for-racing-92/

I'm going to take that as JJ and Marshall not being available for Saturday.

I'd like to see:
Loughman, Scannell, Ryan, Beirne, Kleyn, POM, TOD, Stander;
Murray, Bleyendaal, Earls, Scannell, Farrell, Conway, Haley

KOB, Cronin, Archer, Wycherley, JOD, Mathewson, Goggin, Daly

Wouldn’t have been his decision at those clubs, he’s often spoken about how hard it is on the short terms as he can’t move his family over, I think they’re in Oz.

All the best to him.

Just watched the highlights on VM1. My God Oisín Langan has to be the worst commentator I've ever heard. You hear him the odd time on Pro14 coverage and he's just woeful. Doesn't understand the game or know the players.

Sample: Murray pops the ball off to..... the ball carrier

We usually get an opportunity to enter a lottery for home Internationals so I assume we will again for the 2020 6Ns.

We do seem to be very much behind the other provinces this year though
