    It is what it is. The best 8 teams never make it through knock out rugby competitions. Some groups are easy, some are hard. Its the nature of the draw and the glory of the HEC. You play what's in front of you, good or bad. You still gotta deliver. 4 wins from 6 and 2 losing bonus points was good enough for us this year, other years that may not have got us there. But we're in the 1/4's now and that's all that matters. Its good enough for me to have HEC rugby in April to look forward to.

    The bitterness coming from the Pale is palpable, arrogant and patronising. How is it Munster’s fault that Leinster are reduced to second tier European rugby when we haven’t even met in the competition this season. We can only beat what's in front of us and we did very well yesterday. Funnily there's no mention of James' sending off against Leinster a couple of seasons ago. Maybe Leinster would be better off having a look at their own inadequacies before criticising ours? a major lack of tries early in the competition when they clearly needed a Hines/Thorn/Elsom type player to sort out their pack and didn’t bring one in. They also don’t have the strength in depth we were hearing about for so long, this is self evident this season and should have been flagged with your performances in the B&I cup these past few seasons. The core of Leisnter’s team is aging, just like Munster’s did and i would like to see how they might cope with losing 14 of their top players to injury/retirement in 4 seasons. We had 2 starters from the 08 final yesterday and still managed to make the quarters. Form in sport is cyclical and Leinster might not reach the dizzy heights they have become accustomed to for a while. We. As we have always done,will continue to go about our business in a heads down professional manner and will look forward to our QF against a beatable Harlequins as we rebuild towards a bright future. It’s not our fault Leinster are out, it’s Leinster’s. Deal with it!

    Well, seven inferior teams get through every year, such a shame for Leinster it couldn't be eight but them's the breaks.

    Some people seem to take more enjoyment out of Leinster not getting through than Munster getting through.
    I just don't get all this gloating, more suited to wendyball than rugby in my opinion.

    Indeed it does and it's always a bit disappointing to see inferior teams getting through. But things generally sort themselves out in the knock-out stages.


    Thanks Taz - I'll bring the sour grapes if you bring the cider champagne!

    Ah yeah, some folks are going to get emotionally attached to the entire thing but poite's ****e reffing aside, leinster weren't good enough this season. Injuries, squad shuffles and players being taken out for ireland duty mean we didn't settle into a proper pattern of play until January and by that stage things were too far gone. Would like to stuff the ospreys in the rabo this season and we'll be there or there abouts next years again.

    Congrats to Connacht and Leinster for making it through to the last eight. Oh sorry wait, wrong thread, wrong year, wrong board, wrong. Are there teams better than us in the HEC? Yes. Does it matter a ****e? No.

    Will Harlequins treat us lightly? Will Clermont have a minor panic at the fact they see no discernable competition left? Will Angela Merkel get outvoted in a German election?

    I'm going to go ahead and stop this talking sense. Our boys, our home, our bonus, our quarter final.

    Twickenstoop.

    Bring it.

    OD predicted that Leinster would struggle this season.

    By the way OD that match I spoke to you about in Limerick will be on this Saturday at a town near you.

    Aww, c'mon they're grand. Munster supporters have been treated with contempt by their sophisticated Leinster counterparts for the past 4 seasons and they're fully entitled to their moment in the sun.

    Furthermore, if this thread hadn't been opened then I wouldn't have been inspired to remind people that, come next season, there'll still be three stars on Leinster jerseys but only two on Munster's!

    (Yes, it's good to be back!) :_innocent__rvmp_by_

    Beating a 14 man Racing B team is a hell of a step down from Quins away...

    That said you have some guys really making their mark who are likely to be running out for Munster for a long time to come.

    In that respect I see Ulster & Munster having a lot more in common than with Leinster in that we have some cracking home grown guys who were given a chance and are taking it with both hands.

    Bodes well for the future...
    Nail on head.
    If there is any over-excitement to be gleaned from this game, it's simply that we achieved
    what we set out to do, knowing what was required. That shows good management of the game.
    But getting on a high horse about this, in relation to Leinster's demise, is a bit irish, so stow it.
