    The pack was destroyed and Duncan was also shocking that day. No one player can or should be singled out from that game. It was poor across the field.

      Tyler was outstanding through that entire european season and was rightly selected as our player of the season that year, very harsh to single him out on a day when we were dominated in every aspect by the clear best team in Europe at the time.

        No, and I presume he will be going nowhere before the end of the season regardless of what is happening. He could be very important in the run in. I'd also like the chance to give him a proper send off.

            this is fully understandable as it was at the end of his first full season in how long?

              It was also the end of the season during which Axel died, which is more to the point.

                Ok lads point taken, that all is relevant obviously.

                  He’s going to be learning Italian soon.

                    Best of luck to him, he is still young enough (31) to have a good few years of success ahead of him & to finish his career on a high.

                      MUNSTER’S Ian Keatley is to move to Benetton Rugby at the end of this season, the Limerick Leader can confirm. Keatley, now 31, has been with Munster since his move from Connacht in 2011.
                      The former Belvedere College Senior Schools Cup winner has made 180 appearances for the Red Army, but has yet to start a game this season for Munster.
                      There were reports in the 42.ie this Tuesday morning that Keatley was "weighing up a move to Italy", however the Leader can confirm that the deal is done and the seven time capped Irish international will join up with the Italian side who are currently third in conference B of the Pro14, winning seven of their 13 games this season.
                      Keatley will face competition for the number 10 shirt from Tommaso Allan and Ian McKinley, however both should miss the start of next season due to Italy’s involvement in the Rugby World Cup.
                      Also mentioned in the 42.ie piece is speculation that Jaco Taute could be on the move. The South African capped centre is a target for Leicester Tigers and with Irish qualified centres Sam Arnold, Dan Goggin, Chris Farrell and Rory Scannell all fighting for the 12 and 13 jerseys, something may have to give.
                      Taute, like Keatley, is out of contract at the end of this season.

                      Tis but a scratch.

                        Hope it goes well for him. I think he is very talented and possibly unlucky that he arrived at Munster when we were in a trough. He certainly helped prevent that trough being deeper and we would not have made the recent European Semi's that we did without him.

                          Disappointing that it seems Taute is out. A couple of years back he looked like somebody who would anchor our centers for some time to come. Its true we have lots of center options but none are exactly locked in. Farrell might be but his injuries are a big worry. Goggin has some promise, Arnold seems to have slipped back, Scannell hasnt exactly kicked on and may have reached his ceiling. Hope it works out for Taute with Leicester

                              Sorry to see him leave, great servant over the years. Probably best for both parties.

                                The guy is leaving us. I'll be removing any of the usual crap from the usual few who seem to delight in taking any opportunity to slate players. In short, show a bit of class or don't bother posting.
