    Thought ERC rules dictated that the commissioner should be from a neutral country ?

    Laloo unerring as lowly Bourgoin shock Biarritz
    <DIV =LeadPara>MUNSTER’S Heineken Cup opponents, Bourgoin, produced one of the shock results of the French Championship weekend when defeating champions Biarritz 9-0 at Stade Pierre-Rajon on Friday night. </DIV>
    <DIV =LeadPara>Despite being without Benjamin Boyet, third top scorer in the league; Mickaël Forest, Julien Pierre, Julien Frier, Aurélien Diotallevi, Augusto Petrilli and Romain Payan, the hosts battled from the outset against their celebrated opponents. </DIV>
    <DIV =TailParas>Boyet’s replacement, Sébastien Laloo was the hero of the night, kicking three first-half penalties to decide the issue. On the restart, the Bourgoin defence held firm against numerous attacking blitzes led by Sereli Bobo. </DIV>
    <DIV =TailParas>A miserable night for last year’s defeated Heineken Cup finalists, was made worse when Imanol Harinordoquy was sent off for two yellow cards while Nicolas Brusque retired with a shoulder injury. </DIV>
    <DIV =TailParas>Despite the result, Biarritz remain fifth in the table with 48 points, four ahead of Bourgoin</DIV>

    To be serious , having watched Bourgoin beating BO on Sat. and our own display on Fri. , we badly need to see Bourgoin's seconds next Sunday.


    If they go all out to beat us , and I think they wont bother , then we'll have some battle!

    It's an away game in France, we have to treat it as such and prepare accordingly. It doesn't matter who Bourgoin put on to the field, we'll have a job beating them. There wasn't as much daylight between us at Thomond in October as we might like to think

    That depends on the variety of flu they have. The flu can have you on your arse for two weeks and weak as a kitten for another ten days after that.

    Let's hope it's the dreaded "Man-Flu" that they have [img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]

    Not worried about this game. Watched the Bourgoin V Biarritz game, and it suited us that they won this game, as much like Castres last season, they are still in with an outside chance in the Top 14 league with that win, and will cretainly view the League as far higher importance than the pointless H.Cup.


    Having said that, I was very impressed with Bourgoin's defence, they didn't give Yachvilli a sinlge kickable penalty at goal in the entire game, which is a stunning feat in itself,and covered the field very impressively. However, Biarritz were very poor, did not use the ball they had with any spirt or imagination, so was very disappointed with their effort.


    Add to that, the game is being played in, for all intents and purposes, a neutral venue, so the spirtual attachment they'd have to their own ground, as we know which is so vital to French teams, is gone.


    And finally, by the sounds of it, yet again, despite all the trouble of theSunday schedule, we will prove yet again, to the ERC, that you could have scheduled this game for Mid-night in Timbucktoo and there'll still be a few thousand Munster fans travelling. We all saw just HOW critical having loud, shouting and singing support can be for Munster in the Cardiff Arms game when we as good as made it a home-game sometimes, and it reflected itself in our team. I don't expect much different in Geneva.


    No question of us winning this game, the only qustion is whether we seal the BP. Since Leicester will have played Cardiff the day before, and if they miss out on the BP themselves, we'll know that getting the BP ourselves will guarantee us the group winners, regardless of what happens in TP.

    Commissioner from the home country is grounds for dimissal ofa citing !


    It happened a number of times last season. Indeed for that game the only "neutral" comissioners available would have to beitalian or welsh as the result of any citing could be benificial to an english team, and the rest of the officials are scottish. The citing commissioner can't be the same nationality as the rest of the officials.


    Just think in these terms .. if any munster player gets cited, the citing is a non-issue as the comissioner is french [img]smileys/biggrin.gif[/img]so he could be seen as being petty &amp; retalitory against a team that has eliminated bourgoin from the HEC.

    I hope you are right, an easy five-pointer with no more injuries would be very nice thanks.

    As against that, they may want to put in a performance for potential new fans in Geneva. I'd expect them to give it a right go for the first 20/30mins and see where they are. If we can get a lead going into half time, I would expect to see a few subs early in the second half.
