MATCH REPORT: Hanrahan The Hero As Munster Comeback To Crush Cardiff

Ronan Calvert reports from Thomond Park  It was a bright Saturday afternoon in Thomond Park as Munster looked to bounce back from their Scotstoun shit-show. Our Lions were back, and unlike Ospreys’ Scott Baldwin, we were egging them on to bite. Cardiff outhalf Jarrod Evans was the difference in the early stages with two sublime … More MATCH REPORT: Hanrahan The Hero As Munster Comeback To Crush Cardiff

Could Munster Be Facing A Dilemma At Outhalf?

Just three games into the new season and we’ve already seen Munster’s assured, clinical best mixed with some slightly muddier moments. Top of the table with 14 points, you would think Munster supporters really shouldn’t have much to moan about. Well, it doesn’t quite turn out that way.

MATCH REPORT: Wooton Shines As Munster Tame The Cheetahs

Ronan Calvert reports from Thomond Park FT: Munster 51-18 Cheetahs Wet and windy conditions cleared before kick-off, leaving a ray of sunshine lighting up the newly-laid Thomond Park surface.

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

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. The South African international has experience in abundance and based on Rassie’s previous signings (Jaco Taute, Rhys Marshall, Jean eile) there was probably good reason to have high … More ANALYSIS: Breaking Down 15 Minutes Of Jean Deysel Being A Complete Monster

GROUNDHOG DAY: Munster Vs Glasgow Preview

Written by Conal Lane Well the Cirque du Six Nations is over for another year, Ireland ending another potential world record winning streak (Thank Christ), back to matters less pressing now. Thanks to a typical Thomond Park demolition job on a pretty disinterested Toulouse, a European Semi Final looms in a fortnight. Glasgow are probably … More GROUNDHOG DAY: Munster Vs Glasgow Preview
