    I felt Austin Healy was enjoying Gloucester getting spanked.

        6 day turnaround for Exeter and 8 day turnaround for us. Significant advantage for us next week.

        If we win that, it's Looking likely we will play Edinburgh home or away, or Montepellier at home. Let's hope Toulon do the business at home v Edinburgh and give us a handy home Q final.

          Yes. A draw would put them out as well. They need two wins and a bonus and Munster to get nowt to win the Pool. Two Bonus wins would allow Munster to get one point and they would win the Pool. 18 points would probably put them through in second.

His sisters are all models but by god he us the most beautiful freak ever. Some engine. Conway is a rampant rabbit and lads we all bashed Felix BUT we see now the plan they have hugely needs a lad like Farrell at 13. He attracted so many defenders and allowed for gaps.

            Fair play Billy for that pop for Earls try too.
            What's this 'we all bashed Felix' ????

              Yep me too. He made lot sof inane comments but I enjoyed him even so. He made lots of jibes about Joey being better than Sexton

              Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                  Munster just Munstering!

                  KiIller, Scannell, Archer total scrummaging, Kleyn always bludgeoning, Beirne daylight robbing, POM pomming pomming, Stander metres making, TOD number sevening, Murray just promenading, Carbery top try-scoring, Rory re-discovering, Farrell so intimidating, Conway his goal poaching, Earls his goal hanging, Haley ShaunPayning, Rhys re-appearing, Loughman nicely developing, Ryan post HIA-ing, Holland soft off-loading, Botha not for stripping, Alby outside footing, scoreboard overheating, Johann quietly steering, team bonus pointing, Exeter not believing, next Saturday already looming, ticket thread totally creaking, Munster clearly marching, Thomond Park awaiting .... and brillant fans supporting.

                    Thanks for the link.

                    Far be it from me to second guess ROG - who says that Munster aren't there yet and "there means trophies".

                    But, but, I can't help thinking that a corner has been turned. Two or three years ago - after we lost to Toulon I think - I posted here that what Munster needed was to build a team, and a way of playing, that meant we could travel to a place like Toulon as favourites or at least as a serious competitor, rather than as brave underdogs who might ... on their day ... etc.

                    Well, I think that day has arrived. And what's made the difference is easily identifiable and tangible.
                    • First) an international standard tight five.
                    • Second) a world class back row.
                    • Third)an international quality half back partnership
                    • Fourth) international standard centres
                    • Fifth) a coaching ticket that understands where it's going
                    • Sixth) a game plan that everyone understands
                    • Seventh) Experience.
                    • Eighth) Discipline

                    You can see over the season how this has been built game on game on game but only really started to become obvious with the return of Murray, Kleyn, Farrell and Goggin and with Carbery getting more experience under his belt.
                    And barring injuries, we can only get better. This is a much better side than the one that came close to, and should have, knocked Racing out of the comp away in Paris last year.

                    If I'm right, we come home from Goucester tonight with a hard fought win, possibly a bonus point win and Exeter get the Sale 2006 treatment at Thomond park next week.

                    BELIEVE!
                    Please, pay attention.

                      Hope joe schmidt was watching last few games . Tadgh beirne is an immense player and has to be involved in 6 nations from the start.
                      hes not schmidts first choice although in my eyes he should be but it would be a travesty not to give him a genuine shout

                            From the Guardian: "...Munster were a cut above as they registered the most points Gloucester have ever conceded at home in Europe."

                              Was at the big win against Northampton but this was so much better, a team in control.
                              Brilliant in defence, but our breakdown work on our own ball was superb, no shortage of bodies willing to do the unglamorous work.

                              This was like toulon at their best, Gloucester tried hard but were not at the same level, no shame in that.
