Munster played it like a semi-final which was a sort of compliment I guess. I think they should look at the deliberate knock on rule, or else players need to be coached to bring their arm up to hit the ball into the air rather than slapping down, which is basically the difference between a yellow or not - its silly but the former gives more of an appearance of a genuine attempt to catch the ball. Disappointing all the same to have been so close, but arguably also didn't create enough and Munster were knocking for a long time in the first half so all in the all perhaps the better team won.

Some game, first of all. Entertaining for the full 80. Thought our lads showed great great determination at all areas. Lineout was immense, obviously - Thornbury was outstanding. Think Bundees yellow was harsh (think he was making a genuine effort to collect the ball, half an inch more and he wouldn've been away for a try). Our lads did amazing to keep the scoreline even when he was off.

The penalty was fair enough. I defo thought at the time he was fine but that's down to my imperfect understanding of the laws of the game - can't blame Bundee really. If you're told your 'fine' then you'd think you're good to go, but depends on what your defination of 'fine' is for.

Munster turned the screw, had some massive players to bring on to close out the game. Fair play to them.

Heads should be held very high this week - really really great game.

Can't wait for this match. Been looking forward all week.
Will be typical we cannot travel so we'll probably win the match :silly:
Really need a big performance here from the lads. Hope Jack has a stormer!!
Just to tell Any Farrell we're still here (wink,wink,nudge,nudge) (CC)

Looking forward to this in a major way. Think we've got a point to prove against Munster in Thomond. A win will bring us within sniping distance of them at the top of the table, but a loss would pretty much give them top spot!

Think our form has been up and down over the last few weeks, we have a real chance to show our form!
