You’d expect more than half of munsters squad in big games next year to be non-Munster players
If those signings go through, they will probably still have a stable amount of non-Munster players in the squad: Matthewson will be gone, and you can't imagine they will be allowed to keep all of Carbery, Blyendaal, Farrell, Arnold?
It's clearly the model they're going for. I can't understand how the IRFU thinks it's a good thing...or why the fans do. I certainly wouldn't want us going down that path.

If we lose Cronin, I'd like us to sign another hooker. Apart from that, I really don't think we need anyone, beyond maybe bringing Jordi back if Fardy leaves.
Many of the Munster fans are unhappy about their young home-grown players' progress being blocked, from what I can tell from FB and Twitter.

I heard that number bandied about yesterday but it is not true.
They have 16 imports (non-Munster developed players) in the senior squad, which will drop to 15 if Matthewson leaves (and I can't see the IRFU paying for him to stay after him slagging off Sexton).
8 are overseas imports of which 4 are from South Africa, based on my maths.
The only way you get the figure 11 is by subtracting the SAFA imports from the total number after Matthewson leaves.

Now, there are other SAFAs in the Munster system (not in the academy) I think, but I don't know where you get to the figure eleven.
When did he slag Sexton off?

It's 19 by my count, 20 if you include Knox
4 English, 5 South African, 3 NZ, 1 Aus, 1 Ulster and 6 Leinster.
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!

Arnold and Farrell both Ulster so that should be 2.

Sam Arnold was born in Redhill, Surrey to a Mammy from Wexford.

That’s the article, he’s not just having a go at Sexton as the headline implies. He’s done well for them in fairness but they do have a lot of good young lads behind him. I just wish they had of signed him initially on a two year and we might of held on to Nick

Marty looked poor tonight for Leinster B, better hope the IRFU didn’t see the “obvious” solution to that last night.
