    IIRC, came on with 20 odd to go- the card was on 75 min so not much to go on- card was a bit harsh. Boomer was the stand out prop, solid in set piece and great around the field.

      Most impressive thing for me was Darren O'Shea attacking the inside shoulder then getting a long pass away to Archer in the build up to Matthewson's try. I feel like Munster wouldn't have scored that try last season. The forwards wouldn't have had the skills or the permission. Bodes well for the season.

        I know there was a lot of handling errors but I was really impressed by a lot of what I saw. Obviously there were a fair few errors but that’s to be expected because of our new system, especially at the beginning. It will take time, but for the first time in a long time we seemed to be going forward with real, attacking intent. Did they make mistakes, yes, but what was fantastic was that they didn’t leave the errors impact the rest of their game. It was great to see that even after the mistakes were made their heads didn’t drop, they kept going.
        Everyone knew what their roles were, everyone was on the same page. We look so structured in attack with a real game plan, it wasn’t individuals giving it a go or the same pick and go from last season that had no real effect. It was effective attack and effective kicking, just smart rugby. Obviously we are only two games in and too early to get a real sense of how the season will go but if the first two games are anything to go by I’m really looking forward to watching Munster this season. Not to mention of Rowntree coming in soon as well. Exciting times.

        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.

          +1 on that. Thoroughly enjoyed the commentary and he a little piece of information on every player on the pitch. Next week is going to be a massive test. Cheetahs are scoring tries for fun at the moment. Great to see LOC back and having such a good game too. Exciting to see so much heads up rugby. The back 3 all had great games. Sweetnam looks like the player of two seasons ago.

            Very early days, but it looks like Larkham has brought a Hymn Sheet for the whole squad to sing off. They all seem to know whats going on

              Agree about commentary, maybe exaggerated how good a game it was, but was very fair, and called it well. The breaks from deep, with several players involved, seemingly knowing where they needed to be to support the move was great, and that sort of structured running from deep will only enhance what Haley and Daly can deliver. When you think there were 12? Handling errors, many when we were in a position to score, we really had a level of fluidity unusual for us. However, we played two of the weaker teams (although zebre must be awful given their result), if we can play the same game against a very different cheetahs side, then there really are grounds for hope. Fascinating start to the season.

                My one criticism of the performance would be the kicking. Some of it was a bit loose and/or inaccurate, and we kicked a lot. The Cheetahs will do a lot of damage with that kind of possession.

                  This fridays game will give a far clearer picture of where we are. The Cheetas are a completely different prospect to the kings and we won’t get anything from that game with the same level of errors.

                    If we smart we won't get into a running game versus them, kick for the corners and play a structured game.

                      Is it the Kings or Cheetahs play at altitude? If it was last weekend maybe the ball was travelling that bit further than the lads are accustomed to?

                        Cheethas at altitude up in Bloemfontein. Kings play in Port Elizabeth.

                          I think they will lose a few matches along the way but if it's for the benefit of the team long term we'd all take that. It just goes to show how used we are to sh!te commentary over here that so many picked up on such good commentators for once on Saturday.

                            Friday is going to be very tough for us. Cheetahs have won the Currie cup and are playing at home for the third week in a row. As you point out the match is at altitude. In the previous two matches they have handed out hammerings to Glasgow* and Ulster.
                            Even allowing for the World Cup and injuries, the beatings were remarkable.

                            *Glasgow also lost at home this weekend 21-25 to the Scarlets, so maybe the season hasn't started properly yet for them. Ulster, on the other hand, thumped the Ospreys in their first match.

                              The Scarlets were good against Connacht so losing to them isn’t a sign Glasgow aren’t at the races, although it’s all a bit hard to say with everyone missing players.

                              Anyway, Cheetahs look very dangerous so we’ll need to take a grip on that game and not let them have as much ball as we have to Kings.

                              Jack O’Sullivan called up to replace Cloete btw. Mumhain will be delighted.

                                Chris looked in pain going off on the cart- but haven't seen anything about the extent of his injury.

                                Munster site has JVG saying '“After an initial review on Chris Cloete’s ankle injury we’ve released him from the touring group as he won’t be available for the immediate future.

                                “In retaining a group of 28 available players we’ve brought in Academy back row Jack O’Sullivan, who arrived today.”
