    Scarlets pretty strong too
    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

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

I imagine Tadhg would like to have played (he mentioned it in his MOM interview last week) and while JK being back may be the main reason, hopefully this is a good sign for Tadhg playing in the France game
      With Dillane and Roux starting for Connacht its pretty clear that Beirne will probably bench, possibly start v France. I'm sure Beirne isnt too disappointed ot miss out v Scarlets.

        I’m sure they aren’t overly sad about him missing either.

              This is a really difficult challenge. If we pull an away win out of this one, then I'd be very optimistic we'll top the conference. If we lose, it could be difficult to overtake Glasgow again.

              No pressure then.

                I like to look of that side, and delighted JOD didn't have any bad reaction to his gallop towards the end of last week's game. Very good balance of experience on and off bench. JJ's turn to fall off the Number 10 merry-go-round this week. This is our toughest game on the run in, I think, being away and against a side with prospects (ok fits Bennetton too), any win will do us just fine. Win a win, even if Glasgow get five points away to Zebre, we will remain ahead on games won and are way ahead on points difference.

                  Arent we 2 points ahead of Glasgow? Any kind of win we stay ahead regardless of point diff or head to heads

                    No only 1 point ahead

                        That's it. Benetton away will be tricky, but this feels like the biggest remaining challenge, especially with the team Scarlets have selected. A match where hopefully some of our younger players start/continue their own paths to greater things.

                          A Munster win would go a long way but I cannot help feeling this might be too great a challenge... Gwaaaann all the same!!
                          Good things happen to those who wait, though mostly much too late.

                            No, we got four last week, they got five.

                              I can’t believe Scannell is getting his 100th cap on Saturday, where has the time gone.
                              The Maul is Back!! LONG LIVE THE MAUL!!

                              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.

                              The Bull-Truly irreplaceable, a mountain of a man. 100 caps!!

                                The youngest player ever to do so? Let's hope he can celebrate that achievement with a win.
                                Has Fineen put Johnny down yet?
