Good to have a quick hit back but their try all came from a stupid penalty.

What's somewhat encouraging is it appears we're at least trying to get offloads etc in.

Rory Scannell needs to get switched on. Careless so far.

Casey almost goosed that up. Took way too long to get it out then went himself.

His commentary is bizarre tonight. Talking about James Lowe, ROG against South Africa... :?

And if he mentions the word 'pivot' one more time....... :evil:

The slow ball wasn’t his fault, but he shouldn’t have gone for it himself. He’s class though , won’t be long till he’s making Ireland matchday squads . Different level of passing to our other scrum halves

So we're now blaming Murray for Sexton taking the ball standing still 90% of the time?

Yeah, Very noticeable how they're all trying to get their arms clear/beyond the initial contact, good to see at last 👍

Rugby is ruined be refs and the complexity of the rules


Cardiff player falls before tackle against holland... penalty cardiff


munster 7 with great attempted poach... deemed hands on ground penalty cardiff

Last turnover there hand were on ground also but penalty munster

Refs have a bigger influence on games than teams these days

They’re letting a lot go with crooked lineouts these days , unless they’re really obvious

I thought the final pass for Cardiff try was worth a second look at too for being slightly forward...

A lot of harsh penalties are letting Cardiff off the hook in the red zone.

Was Scannell always so slow?

Healy is pretty good, especially for someone who looks like a 14 year old. My first time really seeing him.

Plenty to work on but a very good kicking game and being able to physically handle yourself is enough for this level at this stage of his career

He’s awful.
Still better than Robbo though. He hasn’t started with the cringeworthy nicknames like calling McCloskey the Bangor Bulldozer or Will Connors’ sisters calling him “Whingey” or some shit, nor have we treated to a run through of where the players played mini rugby when they were 8 years old.

Ref has been good, clear and consistent. :thumbup:

Munster look good at times and headless at others. Badly need a try at the beginning of the second half to really believe in themselves.

I like Robbo, he's obviously taking the piss all the time. He's entertaining.

I support the Dregs so I’m very much a neutral eye.

If you ever want to know why the league is derided here in Wales then this is it.

Munster backs are very sluggish in attack and Cardiffs poor kicking from their halfbacks is killing them
