  • Munster v Aironi, Team named

    Munster field their strongest side of the season for the visit of Aironi Rugby when the RaboDirect PRO12 resumes tomorrow night in Musgrave Park.

    Keith Earls, Conor Murray, Ronan O'Gara, Donnacha Ryan, Paul O'Connell and Denis Leamy are all named in the starting XV for the first time this season while Donncha O'Callaghan is listed among the replacements alongside Tomas O'Leary who is also set to make his seasonal senior debut having had a run out with the A side in Galway last Friday.


    Will Chambers is at outside centre which means a switch to 12 for Danny Barnes and the return of O'Connell naturally sees him take over as captain although Peter O'Mahony who assumed that role in O'Connell's absence retains his place in the starting XV.

    Five players Johne Murphy, Doug Howlett, Barnes, Wian du Preez and O'Mahony retain their places in the starting XV from the Ospreys game while James Coughlan missed that Ospreys clash through injury.

    The selection reflects a certain urgency to get the RWC players back into action as coach Tony McGahan explained that Munster need to hit the ground running.

    "I think you'll have seen South African, English and other countries players come back and play as soon as they were out of the quarter finals. The Irish players had two weeks rest. We're already at least a week and a bit behind so we need to look at all the possibilities and people who are going to be best for us short term and long term in this 4 week block that we have."

    Munster (v Aironi Rugby) RaboDirect PRO12 League, Friday (8.30am) Musgrave Park.
    J Murphy; D Howlett, W Chambers, D Barnes, K Earls; R O'Gara, C Murray; W du Preez, D Varley, BJ Botha; D Ryan, P O'Connell capt ; D Leamy, P O'Mahony, J Coughlan.
    Replacements: D Fogarty, M Horan, J Hayes, D O'Callaghan, N Ronan, T O'Leary, S Deasy, L Mafi.

    (Not considered due to injury. David Wallace, Troy Smith, Felix Jones, Jerry Flannery, Peter Borlase, Darragh Hurley, Mike Sherry).

    • Squeaky Bum Time approaches

      (By Piquet - not my work!)
      1/2

      That time of the season so beloved of Sir Alex Ferguson is coming into view.

      There will have to be major rule changes next year, given that of all the Premiership teams, only one, Saracens, are not in the bottom half of their Pool.
      Peculiarly enough, of the ten fixtures in Round Four, only three had different results from the previous Round.
      Significant gaps have developed in three of the pools and the first four casualties...

    • Piquet's Half Time Analysis
      by mr chips
      (1/2)
      Right, we’re at the Halfway stage both in the Head to Head games and overall.

      In the old days, if you lost your first match, you didn't win the Heineken Cup. Munster put a stop to that in 2006. Then, if you lost your first two matches, you were out. With the change in format to allow three rather than two Pool runners up go through, that went by the wayside two years ago courtesy of Bath.

      Gerry Thornley in the Irish Times had an interesting article last week...
