      Go back and read the post Miguel responded to.

      It contains 2 statements. If Miguel was referring to the first he was correct. If he was referring to the second he would have been incorrect.

      Knowing Miguel is always right, it is obvious his comments were in response to the first of the 2 comments.

        So the 3 amigos & Beirne & Joey and with players coming through (at 9 & 10 especially).

        European contenders.

          Looking forward to looking scary again
          Good things happen to those who wait, though mostly much too late.

              Stringer is bigger even than his own immense shadow. Pound for pound, he is the best tackler in the world. If you put him into bag of cats he\'d come out without a scratch. He was hit very late for Murphy\'s try. And when he got up, as we knew he would, the crowd cried his name as if he had just fixed the economy.Billy Keane-After Munster\'s famous loss to the AB\'s.

                Two SA's are huge signings really pushes us up a level and closer to being right at the top table. Don't really understand the logic of Matt Gallagher but a very very positive day for Munster today.

                      Still doesn't make it a good signing? Plenty of depth in the back three as is and doesn't add any huge improvement? Although I would love to be proven wrong

                        It's a happy Friday! Now, if we can just get some of the local young talent through - Healy, O'Sullivan, Wycherley #2, etc., we might look like a decent Munster team soon.

                          what is the story with Wycherley #2 in terms of where he is currently / talent?

                            Agree and we were not in the market for a FB. As you say you never know what might develop.

                              Squad for next season, I'd assume there will be a few departures but this is what we are looking at at the moment including a few academy lads who have gotten a run or hopefully will:

                              Prop: Kilcoyne, Archer, Ryan, Loughman, J Cronin, Parker, L O'Connor, Knox

                              Hooker: Scannell, Marshall, O'Byrne, Barron

                              2nd Row: Snyman, Klyen, Wycherly, Holland, S O'Connor, Ahern, O'Shea

                              Back Row: Beirne, O'Mahony, Stander, O'Donoghue, Botha, Cloete, O'Donnell, O'Sullivan, Coombes, Oliver.

                              Scrum Half: Murray, Casey, N Cronin, McCarthy

                              Out Half: Carbery, Hanrahan, Healy, Bleyendaal, Flannery

                              Centre: De Allende, Farrell, Scannell, Goggin, Arnold, McHenry

                              Back 3: Earls, Conway, Haley, Daly, Gallagher, Nash, Wooton, Sweetnam, Coombes.


                              Looking stacked in the back row and at 10, overall really positive and with a bit of luck around fitness could be really competitive. One of the few spots you could look for something would be tighthead? Real quality slightly missing, Archer and Ryan are good players but not quite up there. Everywhere else players are definitely international standard.
