Munster are really easy to defend, and lack the carriers in the pack to play the style JVG wants to.

Munster need to move on to one of the younger tens. JJ is so poor.

If Van Graan had anything about him, JJ would be hooked for that.

Has anyone managed to keep a count of the penalties? We must be close to 20 at this stage? Each one dumber than the last.

I know this is early days in the season and there isn't a lot of game time in the players legs, but this really is dreadful stuff from Munster.

That would be an excuse if Scarlets were finding gaps and mismatches all over the place. It's not an excuse for stupidity - especially not when it's the same stupidity we've been watching for 3 years.

We've gone from historically being the smartest team in Europe to comfortably the thickest.

That was the first bit of good passing from the Scarlets but a great kick recovery by Mun 20.

This is my main worry these last few years. You can moan about the squad all day long, doesn't excuse the fact we look extremely dumb as a collective.

Reminds me of the 2ee2poo era.

Casey took things by the scruff of the neck there. He was stamped all over that try.

2 Scarlets players hit Farrell late but that could be a straight red for POM.

Munster do something good, so POM evens things out by jumping in elbow first. So stupid.

It's a second yellow so he'll avoid a ban, but that could have been red, looks to hit Ball in the neck.

There was absolutely no need to be anywhere near that. The stupid penalties are just so frustrating.

Think that sums this current Munster side perfectly. After playing like muck for 70 minutes, giving away stupid penalty after stupid penalty and poor decision after poor decision, we finally put a decent move together, claw our way back into the game, only for our captain to get the dumbest and most needless sending off since the days of Dylan Hartley.

I hope we never hear the Oirish taking the moral high ground when it comes to player conduct.

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