    Our scrum was beaten by a Northampton scrum that was revealed later to be always illegal. Tonga, Dylan and Bryan.

    But around the park we destroyed them for a finish. It was a great game.....to win despite the scrum problems.

    09 was also a fairly memorable win.

    Both great memories.

      Stringer is bigger even than his own immense shadow. Pound for pound, he is the best tackler in the world. If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try. And when he got up, as we knew he would, the crowd cried his name as if he had just fixed the economy.Billy Keane-After Munster\'s famous loss to the AB\'s.

Next week we face a tier 1 side top of the premiership and we will need to show up next week with that same intensity. Exeter gave Leinster a scare in Dublin last year.
        They're still third best in Angleterre

            Munster are a different level to that team at the moment. A better team without Zebo too I must add. Leinster are nowhere near the level they were at last year with Injuries/retirements/Transfers.
            if Munster stay injury free I think they will win the cup. A better team than any of their previous winning HEC teams. Only caveat is POM has played an awful lot of rugby this season. Will be ****ed after 6 nations.

                Impressive win, outstanding performance from the whole team with Joe as maestro. Who did say last summer his coming was no need for us ?..

                  Van Grann as good as confirms it's a popped rib for POM.

                  As suspected.

                  Not good.

                    Gloucester will be very disappointed with that display ,thought in some ways early on we got rub of green with one or 2 ref calls but no doubt who were the far superior team on the night .
                    cracking all round display against a good club who have sound supporters ,great to see so many travelling munster fans ,a great all around display .

                      Some performance by Billy Holland when he came on, some servant to Munster.
                      We'll engrave your name in gold, as we did in days of old.

                        Yes, but a significant distance behind Exeter and Saracens.

                          Zebo is and was a much better player than Haley

                            Overall very enjoyable a bonus point and five tries away from home . Sitting on top of our pool and our pro 14 pool also. When you consider where we've been, This is a night to be rightly happy.

                                Best performance in a long, long while. Few lucky bounces to make it comfortable but we were never losing this one and won't lose many when we bring that standard.

                                Farrell rebalances the backline. We go forward where we were staying static a few weeks ago, and Scannel in particular seems to flow better. Up front, Kleyn is international quality, while TOD hits a sweet spot between Botha and Cloete.

                                Carbery is being understatedely brilliant. Outside of the tries, there's no dramatic highlight reel moments, just consistent execution and management of the highest quality.

                                Unsure how Conway can be kept off the Irish 15. Even pushing Earls at this stage. Worth confessing that he was 3 feet offside for the try he was awarded though.
