If Farrell ever decides to go the double distributor route, I wonder will we see Lancaster being asked to play Frawley at 12 to broaden the options. He looks too good to be stuck behind Sexton and at least one Byrne. I could see him as a tidy 2nd 5/8 type.

First time I have really seen him and he looks useful. A bit gangly TBH where size and power are the usual requisite for 12.

I am not convinced at this 12 talk at all but he is a very decent 10. Hard to know what will happen with the three boyo's f**king it out now that Sexy is in the finishing straight.

Edit: duking not f**king though that could settle it

Not a bad call for Frawley to 12. He’s one of those strong wiry types - stronger and tougher than he looks. A fairly tall athletic lad with decent pace and has outhalf instincts. He could do a decent job at 12.

I don't think he'd fare any better going head to head against COB for the 12 shirt tbh.
Henshaw, despite being a sicknote, is still young too.

Wrong way round, you could call him a cúnt and no one would bat an eyelid.

If Farrell wants to go that way, I'd say it's more likely he'll ask Ringrose and Henshaw to change how they play rather than demand that Cullen/Lancaster shoehorn their 3rd (maybe 4th) choice 10 into a different spot.

Munster apparently resting the internationals for the Leinster game in Thomond. I can understand because getting beaten by the Leinster seconds would really knock confidence, but I'm really looking forward to the Tony Ward article about how disrespectful it all is.

Yeah. Or player 'management'.

Rest of the squad have had a proper preseason with Larkham so maybe we'll score a try :thumbup:

I suppose they have to target the matches they think they have a hope of winning..........maybe the Connacht one ?

Crusaders did that with Carter when Mehrtens was still starting flyhalf. McIntyre and Slade were on the fringes as 10s.

Bit shit that the IRFU are forcing Munster's hand. We've seen with the Carberry farce that the IRFU don't care about the welfare of players, they just want them fit for the national team.

Munster's internationals can only play in 1 of the 3 interpro games, and they must be rested for two weeks on the trot too. Considering the interpros are bookended by European games, that means the internationals can either play Connacht or Ulster; they must be rested for Leinster.

It look like Munster will probably target the Ulster game to get back up to speed for Europe.

Is it last years internationals or next years that need to be rested. If next years then Munster could probably put out quite a strong team by their standards.

Does James Ryan ever put in a less than 8/10 performance?

I actually thought Leinster were really poor on Saturday. Conceding three tries to NH was not on. Scrum penalty (harsh) and very ineffective maul compared to the week before.

Snakey after getting a sell out. That said I’ll be interesting to get a good few of the young lads. Hopefully Coombes or jack o Sullivan getting a big game start.

I'm sorry but Henshaw will never be a second playmaker in the backline. Also it's hardly shoehorning, Frawley played 12 at u20 level. There was also some talk of him being tried at 15 although that appears to have died down somewhat.

Will Leinster make it to 2020 unbeaten in all competitions? That would be pretty astonishing.

I actually thought Leinster were really poor on Saturday. Conceding three tries to NH was not on. Scrum penalty (harsh) and very ineffective maul compared to the week before.

Maul problems were down to the ref allowing Saints players to "swim" around the side and get at the ball carrier. Totally illegal, but a lot of refs seem to let it go. Our maul, both offensive and defensive improved greatly when Toner came on.

Their first try came from a quick penalty, about 10 yards out, which wasn't taken from the mark since the ref hadn't the chance to say where the mark was. It was well worked, but defending quick penalties like that is a matter of luck, since theoretically the ball carrier should have a free run to the line.

Their second try came from an intercept of our attacking ball in their 22 which was well run down. From the breakdown they scored through text book crossing, which the ref refused to check, despite taking about 5 minutes to check a possible Healy knock on before our previous try that was clear from the first viewing angle that he didn't.

Third try was a bit soft, alright.

The problem was that they would still win the game easily giving a 5/10 performance. Tendency to switch off because they're streets ahead of the opposition at times this season.

The Leinster maul has probably been the worst thing about the team in recent years. Has never really functioned at the level of the very best mauls in Europe imo.

The story is also framing it that Sexton will only stay in the country if Farrell selects him as his first choice 10. :uhoh:

Out of contract at the end of this season I sssume ? Like Kearney , I would have though retirement was far more likely but if he can land a big payday in France before he calls it a day good luck to him

That makes it even worse, as it was textbook crossing.

And he didn't go to the screen.
