Quote I hope I’m wrong obviously, but it could be a long afternoon. That’s not even a second 15 in most positions. I’d take a losing bonus point if it was on offer.

Quote That side is liable to be hammered, they've cotton wooled our strongest 23.

Quote Not happy with that selection. Doing our best to throw away league points

Quote Disappointed with that selection, I was hoping to see more of a mix between younger players and experienced players both in this game plus the Connacht game. I get rotation has to happen as does development, but seems too black / white. Scarlets went from +2 to -5 in the handicap beating.

Quote Jaysus, I've just now seen the team. I'm no longer looking forward to Sunday.

Quote Terrible selection. The squad is big enough to rotate while not really weakening it


Sad! If we win then we’ve beaten a Munster 2nd XV, and if we lose we’ve lost to a Munster 2nd XV!

I thought Jones looked good last season. He seems to have slipped down the pecking order lately. 

If I had to guess, I'd say him and Jac have been given some tough S&C targets by the new regime and they are working towards those. Total guesswork of course!!
We're still still here!

I thought I'd seen something about fitness a few weeks back but I can't find it. I was beginning to think I'd dreamt it.
Good luck to them both.

I still doubt the wisdom of playing Shingler in the second row. Blade supposedly has a higher "power rating" Perhaps it would be possible to swap them round for the scrums.

No excuses if we don’t win with bonus point Munster obviously don’t rate us, let’s go out and show them they are wrong.

I'll be ecstatic with a win.  Even better if we can deny them a LBP.

Spot on Wasp. We can only take care of our performance. No team pulling on the Munster shirt will be easy to beat but we are an improving team searching for that consistently high level of performance.

I'm a little bit confused by our second row selection, based on the first 2 games the pecking order seems to be;
Lousi
Shingler
(Ashley)
T. Price
J. Price
M. Jones
So for Morgan to be benching ahead of the Prices, who are available, looks inconsistent.

No mention of Lezana? Thought he was back with us

Happy to see Costelow getting starting opportunities.
Really hope Conbeer gets a run of games soon, can't find form if you don't play
As long as you win it once, you'll never be forgotten

Don’t know what the score is with Josh Helps, but he was in the gym this morning. Seems to be the forgotten man. He’s always impressed me with his work ethic and attitude. If fit, he should be considered for a place especially with our current situation. 
Only one team plays in red. (Sorry, Scarlet)

Tom Price is on the bench, Morgan isn't

I think there's a bit of rotation going on but in any case every time there's a change of coaching team, some faces don't fit that previously did.

Its a Munster squad missing 17 internationals I think

We have to be targeting a home win

Leinster squad today also looks like they have one eye on our fixture next week with some bigger names rested

Obviously we need to win the game, but why are they rotating their squad against us? A bit rich given the Irish complain that the league isn’t competitive enough and then rotate their squad to play away from home?

Maybe they think they’ll put 50 on us like Sale last year

 Rotation, Jac Price put in a thunderous shift! Making 18 tackles! While Tom Price suffered a head injury.

I was thinking of our locks rather than the Munster side. Reading their forum, this doesn't seem to be squad rotation, just wholesale changes with their strongest side being reserved for Connacht- that fixture being more important for Euro qualification because its an all Ireland fixture. I don't understand that. 

One of their posters got told off for calling this selection a bunch of muppets, a reference to what the first teamers of their great team of 15 or so years ago called the squad fringe players. But this team they have selected to play us are all pro rugby players- they all have considerable skills and I'm sure they'll give it all tomorrow. We'll have to play well to win ( ie not like the Os last night). But if we do play well, we may well win very easily.
