That was also a plum's trick. Probably mitigated by the fact that he collided with his own player...

That was disgusting thuggishness. Reprehensible. And incredibly thick. Worth a red card on its own.

He should have seen yellow, and a red for POM.

The fact there's only 7 points in this is remarkable. This is without doubt the dumbest I've ever seen Munster, which is quite something considering we've had some howlers in recent years.

And they may get the draw.

Did DeAllende not knock that on ?

And try Munster.

Conversion for the draw.

Probably the correct result, as no team deserved to win the spackerfest.

JvG got the starting team wrong. Bench has make a huge difference.

Losing POM probably helps too.

Fair play to Munster. Didn't think they could do that.

That's idiotic from Davies. He's never supporting his bodyweight and then lifts it when he's on the deck.

Interesting tactic by Munster - don't let the opposite team play by giving away penalties and 3 pointers.

And then start using your centres in the last 10 minutes.

The team has definitely improved since they lost their Elite Support Captain.

You need to point some of your older players towards the Knackers yard.

Is there some kind of mullet-October happening, similar to Movember?

It's the only excuse I can think of for all these awful haircuts (across all teams)

Coombes made a huge difference when he came on. His reading of the play and athleticism to stop that grubber from the Scarlets winger making it 34-10 and game over. His play from then on, in the build up to Farrels try in particular was superb.

He's a better rugby player than O'Mahony right now and if the first 70 minutes showed anything today, it's that O'Mahony is not in the team for his experience, leadership and decision making.

We need to get Hodnett involved and play a few games with a Coombes, Hodnett and Stander back row. There is absolutely nothing to lose by trying it because we're going nowhere fast with the status quo.

Try Glasgow with the half time clock in the red.

Ref blowing Connacht off the park.

3 - 7 Glasgow half time.

Good comment on the 42 on POM..

0 carries, 0 meters, 0 defenders beaten, 0 turnovers won, 1 turnover conceded, 3 penalties conceded, 1 yellow card, 1 red card, 1 pass, 5 tackles.

He's the Munster captain. :|

Worse than that, having watched the match those stats suggest he did better than I thought!
