We have Leinster away on 25th January so don't expect anything from that game. We then have another 3 weeks before the game in Benetton. So thats 6 weeks from yesterday. Of that injury list published only Aaron & Angus O'Brien won't make it. Hopefully we should have some cavalry back to replace the squad players. Also players like Rhys Patchell, Steff Evans & possibly Hadleigh may well be available. A team against Benetton of :-

15. Rhys 14. Jonny 13. Fonotia 12. Asquith 11. Steff 10. Dan 9. Hardy 
1. Phil Price 2. Ryan 3. Werner 4. Jake 5. Cummins 6. Kennedy 7. Cubby 8. Blade.



Bench 16. Daf Hughes 17. Dylan 18. Gardiner 19. Helps/Bulbring 20. McLoud/Boyde/Casseim/Rawlins 21. Jonathan Evans 22. Steff Hughes 23. Ioan.

Based on what form - he hasn't played since November. If he doesn't feature in the European games or Leinster away I can't see Townsend picking him.

Very interesting and another sad tale, if confirmed.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Munster showed with their demolition of Gloucester last night that they are one of the 4 teams who can win big this year. The others - Leinster, Racing & Saracens. If we want to see what difference carrying forwards make to a side watch this game. Kilcoyne, Scannell, Archer, Beirne, Klein, O'Mahoney & Stander were constantly hammering away at the Gloucester defence; it was only a matter of time. The error count, as Leinster, was incredibly low. Watch & learn Wayne.

I think Wayne realises that we need bigger ball carriers, BUT, where and how is he going to get them to West Wales to play for lower wages? Answers on a postcard....

Are you suggesting that Limerick is superior to Llanelli? I don't think the financial disparity is all that it is made out to be. Lets remember that Beirne was offered more than Munster were offering to stay with us. 

Of the forward mentioned  4 are home grown, Beirne we know about and you have two South African imports. Klein was no further up the pecking order than Bulbring and Stander, wonderful player that he is, was deemed surplus in South Africa too small to get capped. Casseim on the other hand has 8 South African caps. 

The Munster forwards regardless of team make up have an ability to raise their intensity levels for these games; sadly our forwards don't seem capable of doing that consistently. Is it coaching, -player mindset I don't know but there is an answer in there somewhere & I don't think it is anything to do with money.

Financially Munster are still on around 8 million a year playing budget. They are smart in the market Botha great cover for Stander. Injury jokers such as Marthewson aren’t cheap. I reckon we are on a playing budget of 5 million max. English sides will be around 8/9 come the new deals.

A few years ago Munster had around 4-6 millionaires involved with the team. 

I use involved deliberatly as they were on call to help the club !!

There is a huge financial difference between the Irish teams to those in Wales, and maybe it is the way forward where the IRU "mangage" the international players, and then in return having a greater budget which supplements the teams.

It seems to pay off as the national team and the provinces are doing well. No one can argue with that.

It is a hard choice, I know where I stand.
Be careful when you pick up the stick.........IT MAY BE THE WRONG END!!!!!!!!!!

It's not only money the population of the island of Ireland is much larger than Wales, so consequently they develop many more players than we do. Not sure of the desparity, but I will Google it and find out.

Twice that of Wales, so double the number of players to potentially develop.
