      No, Gloucester (14, 21, 17) need a fiver or four and a win by 12 to overtake Sarries ( 18, 30, 13)

          Do you think Sammy plaid well for his ability or do you think he played "European level" well?

            At various stages I was watching TV and listening to Limerick FM. Both summarisers said how well Murray was playing, and made the point he was repeatedly having to dig the ball out of rucks, and having to line up the backs (who the point was made should have known what formation to be in). I think we see the slow delivery and apparent lack of urgency and infer it’s his fault.

              I thought Murray played better today than he has for a good while.

                We're far too critical of him, maddeningly inaccurate kickaways aside.

                  CJ showed the grit/power that makes him so valuable. POM, sadly, didn't show enough and you sense his days an Irish regular are likely to be over. JOD is now the one making the impacts POM used to be making and deserves a craic in the Irish squad.

                  Enjoyed seeing Whyc getting stuck into AWJ. He has rough edges, but we've been lacking players with that edge.

                  Hopefully the opportunity to focus on the Pro 14 allows us to work more on our game and get the points we've dropped in previous years.

                    He surprised me, played better than I expected

                    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                      Murray played well imo. But I will be amazed if he starts for Ireland In 2 weeks.

                        I can't buy the notion that O'Mahony is locked into some long term decline. He's 30, and a year ago was coming off an absolutely huge year. Something seems to be amiss, whether it's fitness, or whatever was put into World Cup preparation or something in his head, I don't know.

                        But I don't believe that a guy with his attitude, ability, massive fitness and all the rest just drops off a cliff.

                          I don't want him to, tbh. He's clearly still rebuilding. No harm to let Cooney put a fire under him, and at the same time give him some respite from the pressure and physicality of test rugby.

                            There seems to be a long hangover for certain players post Camp Joe - for me that hangover goes back to the whole of 2019. There also seems to be noises of tensions with Van Graan - which is not good for him as captain or the team. As a captain he does not relate well with refs and I don’t think captaincy sits well on his shoulders (he seems to get defensive rather than positive - hard to put my finger on it).

                            to put these views in context, I am a fan on the sidelines with no real knowledge so pure guess work (or taking sh1te) but the one thing is clear is that his game is off and it really should not be.

                              Anyone have insight as to why archer is favored over Ryan this season. I thought he had a terrible game today. Ryan has featured for Ireland last two years.archer had two Ireland caps or some thing in 8 years. I
                              dont recall ever saying or thinking after any game that Ryan was bad seeing him vented about on here.

                                With Ospreys having a kick to make it 9-0, I had begun to worry about our unbeaten home record. However Ospreys has maxed out at that stage, and in the end they were one of the poorest teams to show up in TP for a European match. But the victory was well deserved.

                                Munster have copped an awful lot of flak in recent weeks, much of it deserved, but the team dug in well today after they had started poorly in somewhat weird January weather - a 1pm kick-off with a sun beaming warmth down on the field. Ospreys didn't have to do much to get their lead, but they caved fairly rapidly.

                                JOD impressed hugely for me, and considering 7 is not his natural position he showed some brilliant open side play and running lines. Of the young guys, Nash and Goggin were very good and their basic skills never let them down, unlike some others. CJ was MOTM for me, the effort he put in was just immense, he looked knackered from about 70 mins on, but still kept going and got another try. Ospreys fought hard on the ground and with Lydiate and Tipuric you'd expect that - a lot of our ball was really hard won and our halfbacks were getting it very late.

                                Not surprisingly the match had a strange atmosphere. I can't say I really enjoyed it considering the group outcome. But it was important to the team that they won it with a bonus point. That's all they could do really.

                                Now, for once, let's have Munster focus like crazy on the Pro14. No more aiming for false Euro peaks in April only to have hopes dashed.

                                "I don't believe in fairytales," O'Connell once told me, "even though it feels like I've been lucky enough to live through a few. However it ends, I'll feel lucky."
