Ospreys in poor form at the moment and rumoured not to have their internationals back so Munster should walk this.

Therefore, expect a tightly fought, error strewn match that both teams will conspire to lose.

Point taken. Still should have had it going for a slash. Like Charlotte Church was caught doing outside the nightclub

Sarries will probably send the kids, O's and M's to qualify.

Really hard times to be following the Ospreys. Expecting another hammering.Just hope the weather is better than last week, I was half drowned by the time I`d walked home, which made losing even worse.

Munster 12 point favorites. Carbery and JJ are big losses. If Tyler cries off (which given his record is entirely possible) we're goosed.

Allan Clarke says it would be a while before Ospreys see the rest of the World Cup contingent of Justin Tipuric, Alun Wyn Jones, Bradley Davies, Adam Beard, Owen Watkin and George North.

Their absence has been exacerbated by season-ending injuries to Cory Allen and Keelan Giles, while Wales internationals Gareth Anscombe, James King, Dan Evans and Luke Morgan are also currently on the injury list.

Hooker Sam Parry will also have a scan on a leg injury after being carried off against Southern Kings.
What an absolute clusterfurck of a season when one team can play it's test players and the other can't. In Europe. An absolute joke.

This could be 60 points for Cunster.

The WRU have allowed Brad Davies to sit on the Ospreys bench. I'm sure he is knackered after playing 1 match versus Uruguay over a month ago,.

Nicky Smith should surely be starting too. Any future decent players for the ospreys? Can’t say I recognize many. Pressure off for them. Munster to win with a dubious ref decision

That's a bit shïte really, lose this and the O's ar done for in the HEC this year so they really should have been allowed rotate a few of the internationals in.
Saying that, sometimes the younger lads step up when they know they have a chance to impress and play above what everyone expects.

Sarries with an interesting selection too. No English internationals in the 23. Still decent talent but not the behometh you’d fear.

Leave it out BBBD played in a warm-up match against Ireland too (well 50mins). He was equally shite in both games

The local rag excited about Osprey youngster. Perhaps a bit early but we`ll see.

Just giving a proper look at Munster team

. Loughman over Cronin is a form/return from injury selection . Scannell pushed hard by kob. Both well ahead of Marshall I’d say. Ryan archer will probably play 50/30 n alternate next week.
Billy and jk for bulk. Thought fineen might get ahead of billy tbh but no real complaints. Pom tod cj with Arno by 55 mins seems sensible. Jod can have some complaints I suppose. Pack and bench look like an 8 to get job done and then ready for next week. Get 8 points minimum from this block and we’ve a decent chance to qualify given our home record.

Backs and subs are a strange one. Shane Daly has been the form player. Covering from 11-15. I’d have imagined they’d be looking at him. Arnold looks like they’re almost going to try him at wing?? Rory to cover 10 I get. He’s played there before. Goggin in decebt form

I suspect all based on how many knocks all the internationals are carrying. Jvg has been given a gift horse with ospreys injury/form/international issue and sarries fiasco. It would be like us to fark it up. Awful smell of a banana skin here. I’ve bad memories of the liberty.

If anything, that’s what the league is for. Europe is 6 pool games, to be completed before the 6N. All teams should have the option/opportunity to play all those games at full strength.


A World Cup year really does cry out for a shortened league season.

Going to be a slog. If we can grab a try by HT might open up but our kicking game isn't great and 50/50 in the scrum.

Yeah, lots of weak kicking.

Right idea with the kicking but the execution isn't great.
