    Would agree with giving JVG a few seasons, unless we really start slipping. Unless we see some improvement in our attacking play though then you need to start looking at mixing up the back room.

    Hear hear, RB. I think it was Keith Earls who said that apart from McGahan, he hadn't had the same head coach more than two years in a row. We need at least a couple of seasons without major changes in the coaching ticket.

    Don’t think ROG’s first head coach role should be with us. The pressure of the step up combined with the additional hype, expectation and scrutiny of doing so at Munster would be huge. Better he cut his teeth somewhere else first.

    "in years to come ..." Well we'll see what happens but we need JvG to stick around for a few more years, we can't be chopping and changing coaching personnel and styles like the past decade. It's been a big part of the problem at Munster. We thought we had it sorted with Axel, and then with Rassie. So stability first please.

    I knew that already since the 41 phases against Northampton.

    29-19 loss for Crusaders though, defensive blunders by both teams with the Crusaders 10 (might have been 12) blocked down for another try.

    Cant help yearning for ROG's return.

    Think O'Connell wants to learn a bit more with the underage Irish setup before he comes back to us

    ROG's column last Friday included some thoughts on what Paul O'Connell and Dan Carter could bring to a coaching team. Just sayin' like.

    Secondly, the 'Dyke has hosted Ireland v Hungary (2-2) in front of 18,000 in 1939, as well as Munster v New Zealand (3-6) in front of 7,000 in 1954. What is it if it isn't a Stadium?

    Look at that, 1939 and every one of them respectable and prosperous looking, compare that with the Limerick of the same era, as captured by McCourt.

    EDIT Apart from the Schrodinger Stadium.
    Simple, if it's situated between Milleen and Pulleen.
