Congrats in advance.

It'll be nice for your fans to see you winning an exhibition match at home as Champions of Europe.

Why? Leinster are literally twice as good as Munster.

Hangover, mental focus, backline injuries.
I'm happy that it's in the RDS, at least. We should definitely win, just might be hard going and Munster will be very up for this.

Munster down to Ciaran Parker at TH.

Will they finally drop Holland for Grobler?

I think this is a big ask and traditionally we've always lost after the Heineken Cup final (right?). Hangover, injuries to Isa and Sexton and fatigue will all play a part.

Those guys will provide a huge boost for Munster, if they're available.

Google some images from the homecoming on Sunday. They were all wearing polo shirts with 4 stars on them.
Impressive work by Canterbury to get the polo shirts custom made overnight. :proud:

Trucked him after about a 15m run-up. I was in the terrace just parallel with it and it was some hit. POC got emptied.

I think the last time we played Munster in the RDS was the 2009-2010 Pro 12 Semi Final. Rob Kearney scored a nice try from a Sexton loop

That would be huge. Obviously Sexton is a massive loss but there's depth at 10 and 11. Less so at 12.

What are we looking at then?

McGrath
Carberry

Lowe
Isa
Ringrose
ROL
Kearney

Dangerously close to having a Noel Reid in the 23.

Ringrose
Larmour
Kearney

21. JGP (Fardy rested)
22. Byrne
23. ROL

I'd like to see Fardy play, he is a real leader in the pack and can have all of June and July off.

yeah, plus they had a mini-break before the final. But i think Lowe deserves a start (his appalling defence aside - and I'd be wary about him in the final) and I don't think they'll risk McCarthy in either of these games.
