Poor stuff, particularly from the franchise playing against Sarries seconds.

Conditions were a leveller. For example Leinster scored 3 points against Zebre a few weeks back.


It was a turd of a game though especially the second half. The first half wasn't too bad but too many errors. Murray poor again.

What is it with Murray’s windy uppy pass? It takes an age.

Sarries will be happy with that imo. Go full strength next weekend and see if they can get 5.
Spot on. I think munster will regret letting them away with that.

Notice Murray has been slow for a while now. Hope cooney, marmion or mcgrath are in our 6n squad next year. Murray is still good but he is not a patch on what he was back in 2018.

Can't see munster going far in the HC this season but they are building, albeit slowly. Racing & salarycens to make it out of that pool comfortably, me thinks. Mccall will roll out the limited companies next week and get a BP. Ospreys will be another BP win for them...leaving them a showdown with racing in Jan. Munster have racing away and ospreys at home (BP win).

Poor enough from Munster. Should’ve had the wherewithal to at least deny Saracens the LBP

No Barrit, Super Mario or Skelton. Munster might sneak this one.

If Munster can get a LBP they'll be lucky imo.

Stephen Larkhams input. 4 guys lined up behind the scrum, 2 go left early. Ball fed left to Scannell who crashes it up. Pack proceed to pick and go repeatedly. Cant wait for all the usual pundits to mention how this is a team transformed.

Playing against the best team in Europe, nearly full-strength, at home, Munster having lost three forwards in the first 25 mins, including the captain before kickoff, I’d say 3-3 at half-time is a very creditable performance. Both sets of defences are playing exceptionally well.

I agree with you, i think the pack is doing a brilliant job and their defense has been excellent. I'm not sure why you quoted me though. Are you suggesting that this is also as a result of Larkham's influence on the team?

My comment is aimed at the lazy narrative repeated by the media and I just know they are going to talk about his "signature" and other such b*%&!x. Larkham could be fantastic addition. I don't think it'll be long before he takes the reigns and YVG is moved on, but this Munster team has not noticeably changed. Not yet.

It was more of a reply than an intent to argue that point. Our journalists have proven just how fickle and ignorant they are more than enough for me!

9 points down and need to score twice.

Didn't take the penalty to get the LBP and that they would have needed anyway. Not smart, not close to smart.

Crazy, crazy call not to take pen and secure a lbp with time left still to go again. Could be a low pts total gets a qf spot this season. Beirne's injury looks really bad.

Jesus so many of their problems are self inflicted. The missed drop goal against Racing, the missed pen at 6-3 then the decision not to take points at the end. They could be in such a good position

Hope Beirne isn’t too badly hurt
