    Would still like to avoid a Dublin semi- so we need to win this, and hope edinburgh beat their biggest rivals.

        Getting to the final this year would be an advance on last year, winning it would help ease the pain of yesterday- but only addressing our shortcomings will take it away.

          We will be a lot more vulnerable in the semi than the final. Most of the lads will be knackered after playing Saracens the week before and if the result goes the right way for us some might be still pisssed, all the while our opponents have a two week rest.

          Looking back at 2011 and 2012 shows how hard it is to play a big game after a Euro final.

                Who cares about Leinster. Focus on us and believe we xan win this no matter who we meet. We have the talent just need to get it all clicking.

                All the Munster lads had a blow out in Kilkee yesterday from Instagram I see. They give us so much and I know they are desperate to reward our support

                  It would be good if James Cronin was available with Killer limping at end of Sarries match !

                      We need to get back on the horse and take out all the pent up frustration and pain

                        Need to win this with a bonus point, if I'm not mistaken.

                          Match is meaningless for Connacht other than as a warm-up for their quarter final. They will probably rest a few.

                            Can’t see Edinburgh doing Munster a favour, unfortunately, but still think Leinster are beatable in the semi final.

                              Technically no- we have 73, Glasgow 76, any win and a bonus point loss for them leaves us tied, and we’d be ahead on wins. That said, a win that shows us making line breaks, slick set pieces, good ball retention and turnovers would be reassuring.

                              Edinburgh will know before they start whether they can guarantee Europe and a quarter final. Any win for Benetton away to Zebre means Edinburgh need a bonus point win (haven’t checked precisely who’d have the advantage with a tie, they would be equal on wins, Benetton are +10 on points difference and a few tries ahead). Could be exciting or two farces for the final two games. The simultaneous kick offs we had previously seems like a better idea.
