I expect to see Neville refereeing one offside line a lot more than an other, like previous.

Could they not have used Fitzgibbon and Lacey.

As an aside do you remember the furore when Rollaind did the game in Lansdowne a few years back.
They were on the radio and newspapers questioning his integrity.

And there was equal furore when Murphy did the game in Thomond two years ago. Theres a real bang of getting the excuses in early about this.

Frankly having a welsh referee for this one doesn't bother me, no matter where he lives. I can honestly say that in over 40 years watching rugby I have only ever seen one biased referee. Plenty of ones that were on varying parts of the wrong end of the competency scale, but Steve Walsh was the only one I ever felt was actually biased.

I'm hoping for a really dominant performance from our front-row this evening. Largely based on the quality of their training opposition and the opportunity the break has given Robin McBryde to work with these Units, I fully expect to see a truly excellent Leinster scrum despite the power coming from the Munster second row.

A bonus would be if Kelleher's throwing could regularly target Doris and / or Conan at 5 and 6 in the line-out so that PO'M is not allowed to attack the Leinster throws to 2 or 3.

Lots of little battles to be looking at this eveening but these are two where Leinster could show improvement.

Commentators are on their knees for Munster the whole game. Munster haven’t had a fluent attack bar their usual kick to the corner and pressure all game
