Where It All Breaks Down: Farewell Francis, Munster Rucking And Is It Time For Tommy To Pass The Baton?

Last week I wrote of how Francis Saili should get the nod over Jaco Taute for the Pro12 final because of his attacking qualities. Despite concerns about the New Zealander’s defence, I felt that regardless of selection, this electric Scarlets side would score tries and therefore scoring tries of our own had to be prioritised. However, … More Where It All Breaks Down: Farewell Francis, Munster Rucking And Is It Time For Tommy To Pass The Baton?

Analysis: Sterner Test Awaits As Scarlets Size Up Munster

A HOME PRO 12 semi-final defeat of the Ospreys was largely expected. Munster have been exceptional this season and coming into the weekend no side had ever lost a semi on their own turf. That said, beating the Welsh region was never a straightforward task and Rassie Erasmus’ men broke down their opponents admirably, emphatically underlining their … More Analysis: Sterner Test Awaits As Scarlets Size Up Munster

ANALYSIS: Breaking Down 15 Minutes Of Jean Deysel Being A Complete Monster

IN CASE YOU missed it, Munster signed a new South African by the name of Jean Deysel as short term injury cover just over two weeks ago.

CARDIFF CALLING: Munster Vs Cardiff Blues Preview

Written by Conal Lane Well the winning streak that stretched back as far as December and encompassed some typical Munster performances is over, shit happens I guess. A spirited second half performance from the Scarlets condemned the men in red to only a third PRO12 defeat of the season. More concerning for the outstandingly named … More CARDIFF CALLING: Munster Vs Cardiff Blues Preview

HOW TO SLAY A DRAGON: Munster Vs Dragons Preview

Written by Conal Lane I’m sure I specified Munster would score 10 points rather than win by 10 last time around… never mind that, this week brings the lowly Dragons to Irish Independent Park and a much changed starting lineup for the men in red. Four players have been released from Ireland duty  (Rory Scannell … More HOW TO SLAY A DRAGON: Munster Vs Dragons Preview

Munster Haka Team’s 2017 World Rugby Predictions!

Ronan Calvert The realist Champions Cup: Saracens Outside chance: Munster If Munster secure a home quarter final, I think they could beat any opponent – besides the unlikely event of that opponent being Saracens. The London side have went from strength to strength since securing the crown last term and look razor sharp out the backs. They … More Munster Haka Team’s 2017 World Rugby Predictions!
