      And offensive bonus for Ulster too!!! What did the irish men eat today?!!!!!! Up to Connacht not to spoil their chance and to Leinster to do their expected job.
      "To be energetic and self-sufficing is to be happy; but while one desire remains in the heart happiness may not come there. For to desire is to be incomplete: it is the badge of dependence, the signal of unhappiness, and to be freed from that is to be freed from every fetter that can possibly be forged." (James Stephens, Deirdre)

        In the three matches since the 6 Nations, Munster have taken 15 points from 15 and have scored 113 points. Glasgow have to do the business if they want to top this conference.

          Hopefully Leinster can do us a favour tomorrow.

            Brilliant captaincy from Holland as well. Did really well with a difficult ref.

            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 way Munster finished off against Cardiff and this game ...on an absolute roll.

              ​​​​​​The ability to up the tempo towards the end of games is very impressive.

                  I'm beginning to believe this talk about strength in depth. Well done Munster to win that match away against a strong Italian team.

                    You're wrong.
                    And of course he's not 'biased' in any rational sense.
                    This is visceral. It's irrational. He usually starts out well - because he wants to be a top ref - then as the game goes on and he moves onto autopilot, he loses control, typically around about 10 minutes, and then it takes him around an hour to get it back under control. That's when it occurs to him that he'll have to explain himself to the ref bosses.

                    I've seen enough of him now not to get angry at him anymore. It's kind of forensic watching him now, watching the teen-ager take over and trying to pinpoint the moment.

                    Then Munster get a decision late on in the game and you realise that the 'adult' has returned.

                      So if he’s not biased, how come #BENvMUN was trending all evening?

                        I don’t think he’s biased- just incompetent. Today, fortunately, it didn’t cost us- but every chance it will next time. He needs a serious talking to by experienced referees.

                          Whitehouse decision on no red was ridiculous and unless he has a document in his possession that uses the term 'medium force" he will/should be in trouble.

                          JJ was inspired and great performance all over the park.
                          Is that your second or third time being wrong this week :-) , only joking, great to get the win.
