    Munster’s worst HEC defeat

    "It was a bitter-sweet day two years ago at Twickenham when we lost
    to Northampton, but the sweet lingers longest. There must have been
    30,000 Munster fans in red - an unforgettable and moving sight - and
    they conducted themselves beautifully. Supporting his rugby team is
    almost the only way a Munsterman can display his allegiance; we have
    no other comparable sporting or cultural outlet. " Richard Harris

    Nothing could be worse that that 50 odd point defeat to Toulouse - I'd guess.<!-

        Definitely my worse memory (along with Lille) but yet again last night was beyond despair, there's not even something to get mad at (i.e. a referee).

          Yet again I am bitterly disappointed that we spent the first half hour
          playing the other sides brand of football - rather than our natural
          game. Obviously upping the tempo was going to play into Llanelli's
          hands. This can only be blamed on the gameplan or execution on the
          field - leadership has been an issue all season, this is not to belittle
          the players but being a top-class rugby player does not make you a
          top-class leader (perhaps JK should have been captain on the night),
          ROG was obvioulsy gutted afterwards and you cannot fault his
          commitment but he was too punchy to be the cool-headed captain
          that was required. Ahh, jeez I could carry on typing all night but if a
          tree falls in the empty forest does it make a sound etc etc

          Gutted

          Sorry probably not the right place for this but there are so many
          threads in a similar vein.

          Ladies just gone out, no irish side in the semis, no grand slam, no
          championship. Is there enough alcohol in the house ? On current
          form - I doubt it.

          Ahhh well, its ours next year, for sure.

            Yup the worst one for me.

              has to be the worst defeat, other defeats we you could feel that if things had been slightly different we could have had it, but last night was shocking, the lack of hunger and effort and the need to copy the scarlets instead of stamping the munster gameplan down really grated against me, it was if they didn't care, and to be honest its been coming since the cardiff game at thomond

                Because the prize was within reach, but it slipped through. And we wondered would we ever get that close again. And Woodie was fecking back to Harlequins. And a long time to get home that weekend.

                  Wasps!


                  BTW isnt Stuart Barnes hard to take when your team is being beaten. He was bad last night but the hiding he gave Leinster today was OTT. At one stage he was laughing at them, with stuff like "an English club side is demolishing the great Irish backline". The obvious reply to this is that he is correct, but its a game of rugby for Christs sake no team is ever that good or that bad. Way OTT IMO.

                    Northampton - the game was there for the taking, but we let it go.

                    Hand of Back was a nasty moment, but we didn't deserve to win that game.

                    Last night we were beaten by the better team, and we have to hold our hand up and acknowledge that. Yes, we have leadership problems. I do not think POC has taken well to captaincy, and will be slightly disappointed if he has the captaincy again next season. ROG is no captain.

                    There are plenty of other issues, debated to death in other threads, but we can close out the season in a positive note with bringing through some promising players, like Ryan, hopefully Earls and others. Hopefully, next Season, Bazza Murphy will be over the 2nd season blues, and will return to his best form, along with other incoming players.

                    Onwards and upwards.

                      As a matter of interest Haka, who would you look to for the captaincy next year ?

                          Flannery for captain? No I think POC will eventually grow into it as
                          BOD has done. He's a natural leader but Fla is very driven, he might
                          not be bad back-up.

                              Was actually wondering about Fla as a possibility too. Not sure tha he has any captaincy pedigree, but that doesn't necessary mean anything. I'd give Paulie another chance, but while he is a natural leader, he seems to do this better when not actually wearing the captains armband
