Shadow, Munster will win the HEC next season. Look at teh guys who are effectively new signings for next season - POC, Flannery, Ryan, Buckley, De Preez, Horan, Varley, Murphy, Murphy, Leamy, Jones. Even Hurley, Dowling and Howlett missed the end of Last season.

My big wish is that TOL is given a chance at 15 next season. As a last line of defence he is worth a try a game, but his passing could easily cost us that. Play him at 15. He has the speed, the kicking game, handy enough pass when not bending down. If he can get the positioning together he would be ideal there,
And then we only have to worry about 10

Would you prefer himover Warwick ? I'm amazed that with his service he's still SH , the ball goes high the ball goes low, compared to Strings brutal. Great at defence and for the breaks though.Kicks a bit too much imo

I dont think we will win a HEC with Warwick at 15. He is too inconsistent, is not great at defence, great at counter attacking and for two dropgoals a season, but is not excllent under the high ball.
Is a very good 10 or even a 12 with deasy at 10

Hopefully Jones will be over his injury and able to be our fulltime
fullback, considering both O'leary and Stringer will miss the first rounds
of the ML, I hope Williams, Rowley or Murray can break into the squad
fultime. O'Leary has had a poor season, or reverted back to his usual
form, depending on your politics.

Why is this thread in "Opposition and Other Clubs"?


And why have some Moderators contributed to this insanity? With such a blatant disregard for the protocols of this site, are they really fit to moderate the rest of us?


I demand action!

For no apparent reason quietly confident over next season

That really is good news.

But in a RWC year I can't see us getting our Irish frontliners back for long enough to do real damage, though we might have ROG back a bit more for league games than we're used to. Is that good news?

Have you seen ROG in league games? He looks like he'd prefer to be shoveling horse s**t, and plays like it
too.

TOL for 15?


15 is a position where experience is crucial. I'd agree about Warwick not being the best but we have a ready made replacement in Felix.


If Felix gets a full season under his belt, Robnoxious will be lucky to make the w/c squad, mark my words.

That would be the George Smith who's older than most of the
guys you're calling a Dad's Army back row, correct?

Quite.

George Smith is about to turn 30.

Quinny is about to turn 36. Wally is about to turn 34.

Almost unbelievably, George Smith is only 17 months or so older than Denis Leamy.

Amazing really how young he was when he made the breakthrough, he has 100+ caps aswell for Oz.

very excited about jones next season. I do believe TOL will soon find the form that made him unstoppable not 18 months ago.. In my mind then, I felt, among others, that he would be the lions test 9. He had a bad injury, and some bad injuries do take a longtime to recover from, both physically and mentally.


I'm hoping for big seasons also from IQ players gleeson, deasy, Dave Ryan.
We still have a world class pair of locks, and some possiblities in the back row with leamy, coughlan, wally still not yet over the hill.


One thing about ROG though.. you can slag him all you like, but I sometimes feel he respresents a lotof the heart of the team. There is a star quality about him.. games always seem more interesting when he's playing. Hard to explain. Maybe it's the face he gets when he's pissed.. or the pomp and chutzpah when he's on form, but, like wally, I feel we will miss him more than we realise when he is gone...

You should apply your thinking on O'Leary to Jones, imo, it could be a
long way back for him.

It's not that Warwick is flaky, it's that the things that work really well
against bad teams don't work at all against good ones. He's not a
fullback, in all the big games we've lost over the last two seasons,
Warwick has been caught out of position and it's been exploited, imo.
Obviously that's not the only reason we've lost, but it's a problem we
shouldn't have.

Again though, how many top level fullbacks have Munster produced
since the 1980's? Until we work out why Munster can't produce
players from 11 to 15 we're always going to rely on imports.

3rd-July-2010, 06:57
Warwick is fine at everything except he always makes at leastone stupid decision per game which costs points and sometimes games, maybe with the fit options next year it might focus him as last year there were no options.

Great post.

He is an amazing character in the game, it's true, and you are always asking the question which ROG will turn out today. We'll all miss him, cos in spite of everything he's actually a top class player in spite of his physique.

Favourite bits
Those sublime touch finders that can turn a game on a sixpence that'd make you almost swoon,
the critical kick in lashing rain from an impossible angle or distance that have you apologising for every bad thought you ever had about him,

the snap flat pass that puts a runner into space that no one knew was there. Then come the interviews and he shoots from the lip and you know he's happy that he has found his form and is in the groove

And then he f**ks it all up by doing something entirely predictable.

He's possibly become a bigger player in the Munster legend than Axel. And that's saying something.

Great news! Leamy certainly gives it everything and he was missed in the 2009/2010 season. Recently saw again his try in 2008 HC Final and then I remembered what we were misiing in San Sebastian -- with all due respects to James Coughlan, Leamy has the experience and the guile.

First game of the season could see a very strong line up something like:
Big Pete, Fogarty, wian
POC Ryan
Quinnie Leamy POM
Williams Warwick
Sam T Earls
Dougie Jones Mafi

Ryan, SHerry, Nagle, Coughlan, Murray, Deasy, Hurley

Leaving Barry, Johne, Ian, and Tom G in the stands with half the national team to come back in a few more weeks.

Really hoping that our first choice HEC line up will see Leamy at 6 with possibly POM at 8

Hope Holland can get ahead of Quinny from the very off this year.

POM has some way to go before he woll be starting 8 in HEC. Wally, Quinnie,Leamy, are still there.
Quinnie was only a 50/60 min player last season and I think this season he will have a lesser part to play.
Leamy, Wally, POM. We need fresh guys.
