    We could do with a few more comments from naysayers like Matt O Connor - wheres Hookie or Franno when you need them?? :pacman_by_bad_blood

    Last year against Quins - no chance given by most of the pundits including some of our own - think it could be the same again. The collective in this team, as throughout the years, is far greater than the sum of the individuals

    Bring on The might of Toulon - I say!!:_unimpressed__rvmp_
    I second that,well said sir

At this stage poc Murray and Keatley should be used sparingly if at all this weekend .

    All this negative comment might be just what we need espically for Toulon, Sneak up on them. Munster will be on fire come that match, Mark my words.

    We have to keep the faith and at the end of the day play our part as the 16th man
    There's a post a while back about some thoughts being a misuse of imagination.... read it & learn....grasshopper!!

    P.s. think Munster maul murdering the Toulon 'galacticos', think Earls crossing in the corner, Murray round the corner and all the feasible dreams that can be dreamt up.

    P.P.s but please leave Rog to his Parisian croissants which he is evidently enjoying very much :-)

    We've faced bigger odds.

    And honestly I'm too tired (how is it only Tuesday) to be negative. What happens, happens.

    They were chronic last week but these guys will do everything they can to try and make up for that, and do their best to win.

    The HC might be beyond us and we might have left ourselves too much to do with the Rabo, we might have a list of worrying injuries but at the end of the day all they can do is play to the best of their ability and hopefully that's enough.

    It's in their hands.

    anyone else remember the endless list of injuries in 2006 ? every player who put on #13 seemed to get crocked from Barry Murphy onwards, not to mention the other senior players out for crucial games.. I seem to remember the match or 2 before the HEC final our injury list was diabolical & there was some miraculous recoveries in time for that final... fingers crossed...

    I would also say that the longer the internationals are back the better the team usually plays. Its a pity that 30% of our international contingent is unavailable right now.

    Whats this "caught between two stools malarkey"...far as I know Penney is still the main man.
    It's been win loss win loss win loss over the last 6 games. I think that's what's worrying me. IF that 50 percent form continues we have little chance of winning anything. Allied to losing Pom JJ Archer we are under the pump a small bit.


    I'm not kicking the dresser but I, like all Munster fans want to see us in finals and winning things. The up and down has got to stop this weekend. We've to start stringing results together again

    I plan to arrive back in Limerick by train at 10.14 on Tuesday 29th April which happens to be my birthday.

    Hopefully someone will give me a present of a few tickets on my return.

    I think whats worrying most people is the injury's we picked up in the last 2 games, POM and now JJ. Two vital players at a time and against opposition that we need all we have to really compete and win, that being said Munster could still pick up silverware but only if lessons are truly learned from last week
