    Would love this to be televised but I guess it will not be
    Good things happen to those who wait, though mostly much too late.

      I think these fixtures are often recorded for analysis and a highlights piece is put up online. Not great but you get a flavour of proceedings.

        Some club teams have been streaming their Games live on Facebook so hopefully either Connacht or Munster will do the same. Here’s hoping and will definitely be watching both games if I can......

          These games are rarely if ever televised. The odd British and Irish Cup final has been televised but other than that its been hoping provinces stream it.

            Oh yes that was absolutely no criticism there, merely regret that we will most likely not get to watch the only Munster games in the coming weeks. In fairness I am also really looking forward to seeing our much lauded academy players in action and hoping they live up to expectations

            But indeed I do not expect a TMO at those games nor the presence of enough TV cameras to broadcast it. I do not think it would be financially viable anyways.

                      Anywhere to find team selection or do we just have to wait for start of play tomorrow afternoon?

                          Thanks Ormond Lad - must just be getting a bit excited to see some fresh faces in the Munster red. Will record some of the ITM rugby games from NZ to watch as a build up for Leinster ulster......

                            Crowley at 12. He certainly carries himself a bit like Eóin Farrell, good to see two playmakers in there. Kelly and Ahern look like senior second rows size wise in the photos posted

                            Munster A: Matt Gallagher; Seán French, Alex McHenry, Jack Crowley, Liam Coombes; Ben Healy, Neil Cronin; Josh Wycherley, Diarmuid Barron (C), Keynan Knox; Paddy Kelly, Thomas Ahern; Jack Daly, John Hodnett, Alex Kendellen.

                            Replacements from: Eoghan Clarke, Scott Buckley, Jeremy Loughman, Roman Salanoa, Gavin Coombes, Jack O’Sullivan, Nick McCarthy, Jake Flannery, Darren Sweetnam, Calvin Nash, Jonathan Wren.

                            edit: Munster confirm the Connaughters don’t have a web cam to put out a stream but plan on streaming the match in thomond next week.
