    Think the real positive of this game was the form Murray was displaying. He has looked a bit short of a gallop since his return but he looked razor sharp on Saturday night. Munster still aren’t quite there but, jebus, they could give someone a proper paddling when it all clicks into place.

    Finally catching up with the second half of this game. Plenty to be getting excited about but I am worried whether POM will be fit for Friday night...

    Jaysus, he came on and closed out a bonus point win against a still very lively Connacht side and you’re complaining.

    But it's just as likely that he was given instructions going on as to how fast and loose Munster wanted to play, given that most of Connacht's points were coming from breaks.

    He looked within himself when scoring tries against the All Blacks. He's such a quality player he always looks like he's playing in slow-mo.

Can't be the game plan as Alby was running the ball or passing all night. Feel Conor tends to phone it in at times with Munster.
    Fair play to you for getting two nibbles in just over an hour with bait as rancid as that.

    Surely Murray has earned the benefit of the doubt at this stage? He came on with Munster 7 points up, twenty five minutes to go. They went two tries up about ten minutes later.

    If the game slowed at that point, it was because they wanted to slow the game.

    Murray has been kicking the leather off the ball for Ireland for ages. The box kick has been one of Irelands more important plays for ages.

    I think he's a considerable distance from his peak currently. We may be instructed to keep playing him however, as there's nothing like a run of games to carve out a bit of form.

    We've had some very inept match officials in recent times. Probably cost us 2 games and could impact on our CC Progress.

    It was refreshing to get a really solid reffing performance the last day, for a change. M Adamson (SFU) - very competent IMO - Got all the big calls right and used his TMO well.
    Usually the Jocks don't produce god refs but this lad is impressive. Hope we get him in the CC again.

    Credit where it's due.

    I agree with you. I also think he overdoes the box kick - yes it is a good weapon but at times it is just giving procession away when ball retention may be better option. Always felt that a SH needs to be unpredictable and keep defense thinking. I do think Alby does that better.
