    2013/14 Munster, what you are hoping for.....?

    Not gonna title this thread with expectations because I think it led to positioning in league and cup, this thread is a bit more ephemeral. The preseason starts tomorrow so lets get the new season up an running!

    Things im hoping for:

    Pom captain.
    Keats to find consistency and grow into the pivot.
    JJ to hound him like a rabid Kerry dog.

    Improved league form on the road.
    A backup to Conor to emerge.
    Improved and continuous league campaign.


    Rog to appear on the sideline in the cup against us


    So what are YOU hoping will be seen this coming season?

    Paulie to be injury free and play a full season.
    Either Keatley or JJ to establish themselves at 10.
    Scrum and Lineout to provide a solid platform.
    Downey to be used correctly (crash ball 12)
    A style of play that creates a good balance between forward and back play.
    A euro millions win for the Munster branch so we can afford a scrum coach.

      Very generous of you OTHP to offer up your shot at the euromillions for our glorious cause!!


      Would like to see Paulie used in very spare amounts. Two reasons: he's too valuable and we need someone to start transitioning in behind him.

        If I win the Euro millions jackpot I will pay for a scrum coach for Munster. If the win is large enough I'll fly Os up from his farm every week if needed.

              It looks like it'll be a good year for the mealies, too.

                  We did this plan before. Do I need to redo the budget for red meat and strong drink for prop recruitment in Stellenbosch?

                            1. Keatley and JJ to both improve a lot.
                            2. Archer to continue to improve.
                            3. Not have to rely so heavily on POC.
                            4. Improved league play
                            5. Improved back play.

                              - win at home.
                              - become a damn difficult team to beat.
                              - players such as Archer to continue improving
                              - beat Leinster in Dublin
                              - qualify out of the H-Cup group
                              - top 4 in Rabo
