The signs are positive. For a fella who was benching in the AIL at stages 2 years ago this guys improvement has been one of thee positives from 2010. He gets lots of flak, and i will admit I was one of the naysayers. But if your gonna give a fella stick when he is s**te, then u have to be prepared to give him credit when he earns it. Props get better with age. Mushy is still rrlatively young. He showed signs last year (especially in the loose) that he could really be taking that next step. He was feckin brilliant in NZ!!


His scrummaging is still suspect, but show me an Irish front rower whose scrummaging isnt poor smileys/confused.gif


Maybe 2010/11 will finally see Mushy become, what did Gert Small say about him......the worlds be...no I wont go that far........but maybe we might see the emergence of a new Irish Powerhouse in the pack? A fit Leamey, an on form Mushy, Du Preez back in the front row, POC fit again....... oh, hang on....Fisher will see a way to ruin it no doubt smileys/sad.gif

Is he fit after the Oz game? He went off injured, iirc?

i have been suggesting every season for the last few seasons that he will come good and i have been left looking like an idiot, so this year i am predicting he will not be up to much in the hope that i am eating humble pie

It's just this topic has been discussed ad nauseum in loads of other threads. Maybe he will, maybe he won't. It's kinda irrelevant imho.

All I can say is he has been producing it recently and I hope that progression continues.

He will be our number 1 TH so he has to improve some way, the question is how much will he improve? I think he will break even against the average scrums but get eaten alive by top French scrums. He was excellent against the ABs and terrible in his 30 mins or so against a shocking Wallabies front row and that sums Buckley up. If he can get consistent he will a big player for us.

Glad to see someone ask the question. I think Mushy has proven
himself beyond what we ever expected. (mind you, long overdue)

I hope he can deliver this year for Munster because it must be his last
chance. Massive talent and potential. The last time he was this good
was against Gloucester in the quarter final in 08. What a performance.

G'wan Mush. Kill, kill, kill!!

He was taken off before half time because he was getting mullered in the scrum, your idea of a good performance for a prop?

He was down injured for a while towards the end of the half.

He came back on in the second half, Freddie was brought on during a series of scrums which was probably leading towards a penalty try.

The only reason Mushy started against Glaws was due to Puppy getting injured before the kick-off and Le Puc was having a quarter-pounder. He had to start and play on while Le Puc got warmed up before coming on after 20 minutes or so.

Let this myth end here. Please. It's almost up there with Warwick and Mafi for Oireland.

A scrum collapsed on his neck but he played on until half time when he was wisely substituted. I was quite surprised when he played on.

Has there been any word on if he was actually injured or not? He
looked to be a bad way. Even when he got up he didn't look right.

I remember he had a fine game. It's not all about the
scrum.

Mushy has been unlucky with injuries and illness over the past two years. He is not unlike the Bull. He needs to be playng games continually to keep fitmess levels and to get into pace of game. Was outstanding in the All Blacks match but was having a quieter game against Australia but got injured when a scrum collapsed in about the 25th Minute of the game.


More to the point, there has been no news of exactly what his injuries were eg was it simply a neck muscle injury or was it more serious? Obviously we would lhope that he was taken off simply as a precaution and that he will be fine. Smal seems to get more out of Mushy than what Fisher gets.


If he is to complete the breakthrough he needs to play consistently in september ahead of the HC matches so that he can prove his worth then. It is no use parachuting him into the team at that stage and he is not ready and has a poor game. He needs to build confidence in his own ability rather than allow himself to be set up for criticism by playing poorly in key matches. Anybody who played well against the All Blacks has to be respected.


Mushy has only been given cameo moments by Munster . He needs to start and the Bull can now be given the luxury of just playing the last fifteen minutes of matches as a sub. There are two prop substitutions allowed in HC and we should use these in matches so the Bull still is a key man in a 23 man match day squad.

I have my doubts, unfortunately.


Mushy clearly has the talent tocompete with the best teams in the world.


What I doubt is whether he has enough dog in him.


We have seen him gain parity against the best. What I haven't seem is Buckley destroying weaker opposition.


He only ever seems to do enough rather than bursting his ass week in week out.


I would be delighted if 2010/11 is the year when the beast in him emerges, but I have my doubts that he will ever find it.

Or have we finally learnt our lesson
