    Munster V Glasgow. Musgrave Park. Friday 23rd February 7.00. Sky sports action

    If yesterday’s display doesn’t provoke a reaction nothing will. You would think Glasgow will be shorter of players than Munster and form in Cork is, generally, very good. Finishing top of the conference is gone, realistically, but it is vital Munster finish second to get the home QF and hopefully as good a seeding as possible for next season’s Nigels cup.

    Will be very tempting to shame them by keeping the 23 as is-that said, I’d start Zebo, Hart, Kleyn, Sherry, bring in Wootton to the23. Thought I saw killer strapped up and limping at the end.

      Hopefully Killer is just stiffness after playing on the plastic pitch. I think we must go full strength this week and next.

        Hopefully Hart will get a starting opportunity this week. Hasn't had much opportunities and also is an able place kicker which would give some back up to our OHs none of whom are consistent

          Going to be a lot of activity in the area on Friday night with Cork v Waterford meeting in Premier soccer match for 1st time in 10 years. They are expecting a large crowd.

            Yes, It's most peculiar that the top of the conference match is fixed for a Friday night. You'd imagine that Saturday night would suit Sky better.

              yes - but with the internationals next day, maybe Sunday would have been better- given France vs Italy is on TV on Friday night it’s also rather odd from a scheduling point of view.

                Bit of a response is needed, started poorly against Cardiff. Left ourselves with a bit too much to do in the end.

                Would like to see Tyler B get a run here. DOC2 & ROM as well. Try and get the back to speed.

                  Bit of a odd one, thought scheduling had been getting better.

                    I know seven might be a bit early but France V Italy in the six nations is hardly a must see game.

                        Why has Liam O’Connor only had an operation now?

                          Maybe waiting for swelling or haematoma to resolve

                              Traffics will be pretty bad in that area with good crowds expected at both matches
