    200 ideas to improve Munster Rugby

    After the performance against the Ospreys, things clearly have to change and there are many ideas being mooted on the various threads.

    I thought it would be a good idea to start a thread to generate solutions. There are proven techniques for solution generation but doing it over the internet is both difficult and advantageous. I suggest that once we have 200 ideas generated (hopefully more), the list would be sent to the MB.

    This thread is about generating lots of ideas, not judging them. The acronym GREAT is used in solution generation – Generate, Reduce, Evaluate and Tie together. What this thread is about is the “G” - generating ideas only.

    Ground rules are:
    • all ideas which improve Munster Rugby are welcome.
    • Personalised ideas (i.e. “sack so and so”) are not allowed.
    • No idea is evaluated on the thread (except those clearly anti-Munster) Maybe a moderator can volunteer to sticky this thread and delete the WUMming and keep the thread on topic.
    • Ideas and praise only
    • If you don’t like the thread, don’t read it and don’t post on it.


    Some points to note about creative thought:
    • Think outside the box
    • Don’t be afraid of being wrong
    • Don’t try to be logical
    • Challenge existing assumptions
    • Challenge existing paradigms
    • Don’t try to search for the “right” answer
    • Don’t judge ideas before they are formed
    • Don’t be a victim of psychological inertia

    Good Luck and God bless Munster.

    1. Pay clubs which develop players (like player royalties)
    2. adopt an Athletic Bilbao approach to only using Munster players from 2016
    3. Place Academy players in manual labour jobs fr the summer (farming, construction etc)
    4. Propping roadshows at ploughing championships, vintage fairs, summer fairs etc
    5. roadshows to generate more ideas
    6. Subsidise a Polish rugby club (i.e. Irish based Polish club, like London Irish used to be in England)
    7. Develop a partnership with the German Wild Rugby Academy

        1. One training base don't care where it is.
        2. Open trials couldn't hurt, Maybe use it to target specific player groups, i.e. backrow or props.
        3. Restructure the academy, Let the guys learn their trade in the AIL its as good a standard if not better than B&I cup. Increase the amount of academy players allowed play for a side in a given match.
        4. Some form of research and development. Work with the University's/Institutes with an aim to reduce injuries and better condition players . Form new tactics, exploit rules (chock tackle being a good example of how this can be done) ,come up with game plans and set piece moves.
        5. Form a plan B, C, & D along with a hail Mary play Z if nothing is working.

          1. Voluntary or incentivised code for Munster AIL clubs to have at least 8 players under 24 in their teams
          2. Appoint a sprinting coach

            Carry out full eyesight (acuity and peripheral) examination on ALL players (no ref jokes please).

              Work on injury prevention through prehab vs rehab. Hire Freddie Puccarello to scout out some Argentinian youngsters with propping potential. Get Os du Randt in as scrum coach or scrum consultant.

                The Argentinian-Irish connection has been completely overlooked. Some of these guys would be IQ

                          Make a club, school competition ( this may already exist? A lot has changed since I left in'95) - what I mean is combine the pool of players and potential found in the clubs with the schools training and general structures to raise the level of competition, interest and awareness (awareness to both munster scouts and potential players).

                              The same could be said for all the Irish teams. Under-age players coming up through schools rugby are singled out for pure athleticism and not skills unless they play 9 or 10.
                              If you look at Leinster, McFadden and Macken don't look half comfortable enough passing off left or right where as O'Driscoll and O'Malley do because they played 10 up to senior level. Same could be said about Earls.

                              The way New Zealand do it, all schools rugby is split up by weight and not age (not sure if this applies to props!) but this prevents the biggest kid in the school aged 12 from putting his head down and trying to run through everyone when he's playing against lads his size.

                              If this could be brought into Munster schools we'd be ahead of that awful over hyped Leinster schools cup
