      Great to see cloete, arnold and wootton back. O'donoghue captain. Him and goggin look even stronger than last year. Alby will move it quick which is always good.
      Is daly capable enough at FB? Will be a step down from Haley I think.

      Looking forward to rowntree's influence bear fruit and larkhams good work to continue. Lots and lots to be optimistic about

        Daly looks to have more speed than Haley and very skilful footballer. FB will tell us more about his defensive abilities. serious gas across the back line- any and all capable of finding and exploiting gaps. Not exactly intimidating defensively, so that will be fascinating too.
        Front row will have a serious test, and looking forward to seeing DOS assert himself. Says something when Jackie and ginseng’s are the wise old heads. Will need to see real leadership from ally and Jj/TB. Could make fascinating viewing, if from behind the couch.

          Daly at FB is an interesting call. Seen him play 13 and wing but not 15. Wonder how he’ll go. Certainly has the attributes, but would prefer to see him playing OC, where I think he could be top notch.

            .
            It's got nothing to do with points, it's about player management. We'll need the guys not playing today to be available for most of those upcoming 10 games. They have to be rested at some point and this is one of those games. The next will probably be Edinburgh in 4 weeks.

              I can usually figure out what your predictive text has misrepresented after taking a moment or two, but I have to admit this time I'm stumped.
              Tis but a scratch.

                Munster put out a full side in this fixture last year and got hammered. At least these lads will be hungry.

                  Is Sweetnam injured, or rested?

                    I see, but obviously with 12 to come back from Japan, and the size of the squad which went to SA, we didn’t really need to rest/rotate to the extent we have. Please don’t get me wrong- I think it’s a very interesting side- and look forward to seeing how they go, because, as you email implies we are unlikely to see some of them for a long while (injuries permitting).

                    later... having looked back at the side selected, and bench, there are 7/8 (Calvin Nash, Sammy Arnold,
                    Alex Wootton; Keynan Knox; Darren O’Shea; Diarmuid Barron, Conor Oliver, and maybe Daly-hopefully not who are unlikely to see interpro/Hcup action, and the returning 12 cover these, and more.

                      "Fineen Wycherley was everywhere. When I watched this video back late on Saturday night I half expected to look up from my laptop to find him in my kitchen ' TRK Nov 3rd 2019 following Cardiff v Munster

                        Sorry- should have read ....forward to seeing DOS assert himself. Says something when Jacko and Fineen are the wise old heads.

                        Fineen is tricky for predictive text.

                            Cant play the same players in every game and also there are regularly injuries which we are not privy to except when advised in the weekly medical briefing

                              I’m a big fan of Ginseng Witch-hazel, and his younger brother Ginkgo.

                                Could the 4 Irish Provinces occupy the top 2 positions in the Pro14 tonight - all down to Munster winning in Cardiff?
