Munster win a tight one in the end 10-7. ROM had a Le Roux moment.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Good to see that Munster at least are not demeaning the P12

http://munsterrugby.ie/preview/munster- ... -ulster-2/

Sweetham, JOD and TOD need big performances against a strong, hungry Ulster side. Should be a cracker!

Looking forward to seeing Stockdale, Treadwell & the Olding/Marshall combo.

Stockdale at 15 on Sat in for the injured Payne. Surprised Olding/Marshall combo retained, were like a revolving door for the Cardiff centres last week. Expect a comfortable Munster win. Ulster might sneak a 4T BP if Munster empty the bench etc.

Good to see Bleyendaal and Ryan in. That pack has two huge weeks ahead of it. Itoje, Kruis and Rhodes up against POM and Ryan will be a serious battle.
Backrow lacks a bit of carry with Stander out, hopefully he's ok for next week. Bigger loss than Murray at the moment.
Pity Conor Oliver can't get a look in. Deysel the 'lock' benching at 20.

Ulster's Angus Lloyd starts for Munster against Ulster in Munster as Duncan Williams drops out with a groin injury and Griesel benches, and Keatley starts as TB drops to bench

Rassie clearly angling for a coaching job in the GAA with all these late changes to the teamsheet.

Woefully inept performance. TOD & JOD were simply shocking. Personally, I would start DOC @6 and move POM to 7 for Sarries. Would also consider starting Oliver @7.

Lloyd did well for a guy who's been out of the frame all season and has barely seen a minute of game time.

Keats was cr@p as usual. Scannell & Sweetnam will be big losses. Simplifies things outside 10 though. Taute will play 12 and Conway 14. Definitely think that Rassie will go for a 6/2 split now.

Amos & The Woolpack must be licking their proverbial lips... :twisted:
