    Glad nobody got hurt, as there's a dangerous mismatch of power between AIL players and full time pros.

    you have to remember that most bohs players would be more or less full time themselves.a number of them would have academy or development contracts or who have played professionally in the past couple of years.

    off the top of my head they have madigan(second ro,probably the same weight as buckley,played for munster a couple of times),ian hanley(academy),paul rowley(academy),mike storey(played a fair bit for munster a few years back),martin mcphail,who was on the munster panel for a good few years. chris delooze was on the munster panel a few times,payne plays with them a bit.

    tommy o donnell has played a few times this year for munster

    and a number of other current or former irish underage internationals,some of whom would be looking at getting contracts in the near future.,so as you can see they're not exactly a bunch ot lads who turn up on a sunday after being on the lash the night before

    The same can be said for Garryowen, Shannon,Con,Dolphin, Munsters to a lesser extent, but I'm sure they will catch up, most of the Leinsterclubs would be the same also!

    you'd wonder then why Bohs fail to deliver in the AIL.

    Can't see how you could say that, ten or twelve years ago, they were being beaten seventy odd nil by Shannon in the cup! Since then, they have won the old fourth division,promoted from the third as runners up,same for the second and got relegated the following year, then won the 2nd,finished 5th their first year up,semi's the following year and finished top half of the table last year! I think by anyones standards, except for maybe Shannon... that's a pretty consistent record?

      Team was something along the lines of:

      Pucc, Frankie/Fogarty , Timmy Ryan, Donnacha Ryan, MOD, Leamy, Melck , ?

      Prendy Manning Dowling, Mafi, Tipoki , Doug and Hurley in the backs.

      No O'sullivan?
      I asked a work colleague who was playing for Bohs, he told me that there was a lot of changes in the Munster backrow, so JO'S might have been there as well.

      It was 17-12 with a few minutes to go, with Munster scoring 3 tries in the last few minutes. Shame would have been a great scalp for Bohs! Lol !

          <td ="abstract">Munster's preparations for the game against New
          Zealand next Tuesday, thrown into disarray when Harlequins withdrew
          from the planned tie at The Stoop, were rescued by UL Bohemians who
          provided the much needed opposition last night at Thomond Park</td>
          <td ="article">Munster officials thought the London club would
          provide the ideal preparation for the encounter with New Zealand but
          Harlequins cancelled the day before surprisingly citing an inability to
          field a side. Munster team manager Shaun Payne's club UL Bohemians agreed to the game and gave a good account of themselves despite a final scoreline of 31-12.

          "It was a really good run out for us ahead of the New Zealand game
          and we are grateful to UL Bohs for accommodating us at such short
          notice, " said Payne. " Bohs played really well and were well in touch
          with ten minutes to go."

          At that stage Munster led 17-12 but two late tries gave a respectable look to the final scoreline. Doug Howlett scored twice for Munster as did Mark Melbourne with Academy player Dave Ryan scoring their fifth.

          Paul Granelle and Tom Healy were the UL Bohs try scorers.

          Munster didn't escape unscathed however, with Denis Hurley picking up a knee injury and Jeremy Manning
          suffering a thigh strain. Hurley looks the more serious of the two but
          it will tomorrow before the full extent of his injury is known.

          Munster are expected to name their squad for the game against New
          Zealand on Friday with the final 22 announced on Monday in Limerick.

          Munster. P Warwick; D Howlett, R Tipoki, L Mafi, A
          Horgan; J Manning, M Prendergast; F Pucciariello, D Fogarty, Tim Ryan;
          M O'Driscoll capt, D Ryan; J Coughlan, N Ronan, D Leamy. Replacements. F Sheehan, Dave Ryan, M Melbourne, B Holland, C Murray, K Lewis, Denis Hurley.</td></tr></t>

              garryowen, played OH for the Munster 20's recently

              Isnt one of the O Boyles playing 9 for Garryowen. He was the sub scrumhalf for Munster last night? Is he not starting for Garryowen as Jeremy Stauntons brother is no 10?

              cillian is the scrum half. hes there no.1 choice,as long as hurley is out(is he still on the books or did he leave?)

              no.10 is usually between staunton and kingsley
