Very little invention or attacking play

Good enough to ground out wins over Wales, the jocks and the Italians
England will beat us up
France will run round us

Re: Official Munster v Leinster "O'Classico" Match Thread

Just goes to show how crucial that penalty miss was from JJ. Going asleep and assuming they'd just kick the ball off just before half time as well. Not to mention fecking away 3 lineouts deep in their territory in the first 20 minutes. Shows the difference between the sides. Leinster find ways to w...

Re: Official Munster v Leinster "O'Classico" Match Thread

Our loose forwards and Murray have put in a performance that deserves to be winning by 20 points.

Against a lesser side they would be. Even on a poor night by their standards they are so bloody hard to beat.
