    When things go wrong, blame McGahan

      Well. Thus starts silly season.
      Good things happen to those who wait, though mostly much too late.

        Deep inside we knew that Munster is the number three in the league right now. Today it showed. We had to chance to win it but right now we can only beat Leinster if luck is on our side. I really hope that days return soon that we can win on merrit instead of needing luck.

        We never had a good chance in their 22 and enough said about attack.

        Fardy is one hell of a player. Reminds me of the Beirne we did not see today.

        Goggins first play of the game was impressive. Hope to see more of him next year.

        Looking forward to see VDF partner with the Munster players in the backrow in Japan.

        Lowe is a prick but one hell of a winger. Ireland must be happy having him although I'm not sure Joe rates him? (We know with Conway that as a back three, and not Joe's acceptance, you don't get a chance.)

        Still I believe margins are thin. Next year there's a new chance. With some changes (attack) lets hope we can make the step up next seàson with the right backroom.

          We hammered into them 12 months ago with more fervor and passion

          Never took a swing today, the side looks like the beach is on their minds, whether they'd admit it or not.

          Well done Leinster by far and away the better side today and deserved winners.
          I thought we did well in the first half- but we were well beaten in the second. Well short again this season- glad it’s over.

            Of the two I thought should not play today for Munster one was excellent (Scannell), one still nowhere near good enough (Haley). Haley’s effort on Lowe for the final try was sad

                It might be early onset deflation but the side has gone backwards in 12 months on the big occasions.

                I am not looking into the new season with optimism.

                  Leinster's first try came because they had props who can pass the ball. Munster created space at times, but it was wasted by unskilled players. Fardy made a big difference too. Munster had the upper hand in the forwards until he came on.

                    Said it before, will say it again, Haley is not our best FB right now. He has the chance to make it but he shouldn't be our starter for the big games yet.

                      The only thing worse than loosing is getting a smack in the face in the last seconds as you loose a match like that.

                        Better team won. You'd see more penetration in the Tellytubbies.

                          Hard luck to Munster. Unfortunately things didn't go your way. You need to make some major changes to the way you play to win a semi-final/final going forward and one of the main areas you need to improve on is the backrow

                            Backwards is unfair. We're the same level which is just as problematic tho. Hopefully new coaching staff can make the difference.

                              Just In a taxi on the way back to the airport.

                              Today could be best described as "flat". Neither team nor the crowd seemed up for the game. I've seen better atmospheres at a wake.

                              We just didn't know what to do when we have possession. If we were there until next week we'd still shovelling the same, slow, static ball to isolated players who are standing still.

                              Other thoughts later when I collect them.

                              ​​​​​​A poor end to the season btw.

                                It was poor but otherwise his tackling throughout was excellent- I’m not sure where Conway was for the Lowe try, a real sickener.
