Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Also what players moved to a position where there's more depth than what they left? Arguably Nick McCarthy? Comfortably third choice here when he decided to leave [and getting plenty of games] and at best third choice when he arrived in Munster [and got fewer games]. He was the one I thought of, bu...

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Listen I understand the desire to get a dig in at Munster or Nucifora, but the reality is we have enormous inbuilt advantages, compounded by brilliant coaching. So we can't expect to keep every guy who comes through, nor can we expect them all to be happy to sit on the bench (if even that). "The big...

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

If Munster had been able to do player development there wouldn't have been anything to discuss. That doesn't change the root of the issue though - we've a conveyor belt of talented back rows who all need game time. One is bound to make the (fairly logical) choice to move at some stage, particularly...

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Impressed with Sheehan’s throwing last night I must say. Lovely flat action. I assume this is one of the benefits of being a taller hooker with more power.

Is that something that’s recognised as a strength of his?

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

I was very happy to see Luke engaging the fringe defense and making lots of darts. It has always been one of the strongest parts of his game, but he has moved away from it over the last two years to become a more 'orthodox' scrum-half. He had 9 runs with the ball in 56 mins last night – in his 14 a...

Sheahan's throwing was really impressive. No scrum issues either.

And a great curse as well :lol:

Jimmy O Brien is a serious baller. Deserves a shot at a higher level.

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

This league is getting a bit futile now.

39 points and 24 mins left. What's the point really?

Doesn't help us when it gets to the big games.

I'd be sticking in Dunne and Milne and getting Toner/Dooley off.

Luke M has been class. I know it's below par opposition but I really wish he could pull out these performances in bigger games.

Re: Zebre at home, 23 Oct. 19:35

Wow! Really exciting team. Turner is an interesting one, wasn't expecting that! Wonder what's the story with ROL. Must be a knock surely? Can't have fallen from favuur so dramatically? :shock: Yeah I thought the same. Must be a knock or else they're keeping him for tougher games. Likewise Kelleher.
