  • Munster A vs Carnegie Match Report

    Munster A vs Carnegie Match Report

    So we deserved it, just. Back in the door from a freezing cold Kinsale rugby club. Very little parking up at the ground but mini buses were provided from Charles Fort and Kinsale itself so the club clearly put the effort in. Well run evening so kudos to the club for putting it on. Decent turnout given that the weather was brutal and Ulster were playing in the ERC. Definitely three hundred there anyway, probably more. Carnegie looked like a young side but they were big lads too. Very few familiar faces in their line up but I was curious to see how a certain Mr Sinfield would get on at ten. The wind was blowing a serious gale in the first half and we had it at our backs. We struggled to get much momentum going with ball in hand but the r...

    Sherry To Start For Munster

    20 August 2015 13:57



    Mike Sherry to return for Munster this Friday
    Inpho

    Head Coach Anthony Foley has named his side to take on Connacht in Thomond Park on Friday night with hooker Mike Sherry named to start for the first time since November 2013.

    Side-lined for 21 months Sherry has undergone an extended period of rehabilitation and recovery due to an initial knee injury and recurring shoulder issues that have ruled him out until now. It is with great relief to see Mike, a player who "did think the shoulder would be career threatening at times", involved in Munster's pre-season

  • G12 Semi Final - Munster vs Ospreys Sat 23rd May KO 14.30 Sky & TG4

    G12 Semi Final - Munster vs Ospreys Sat 23rd May KO 14.30 Sky & TG4

    Hopefully the second last preview of the season and not the last! Munster play in Limerick for the first time in 8 weeks against one of two teams who have beaten us twice this season.




    Saturday’s playoff will be a great opportunity to win a place in a final, the Ospreys have form in this competition, and have won it 4 times to our 3. They’ve also more wins this season than us 16-15, a better defensive record than us this season conceding 30 tries to our 31 and both their outhalves are in the leading points scorers for the league (although Keatley is top). This will be a very very tight and competitive game.


    Our Form Pretty damn good truth be told, Munster are finding their groove one loss in ten. The injuries have all seemed to appear again in a tranche but we will look at further on, 22 out of a possible 25 league points in the last 5 games tells its own story. There is competition for almost every jersey bar the bac...

  • Champions Cup Game 2) Sarries at TP 24-10-14 19.45 KO

    Champions Cup Game 2) Sarries at TP 24-10-14 19.45 KO

    A new competition, but many of the old values remain.

    It has been clear reading the site and watching the game from behind the sofa on Saturday that the name may have changed but the desire to win it is still the same. A massive dose of admiration and credit should go to Sale Sharks, their coach Steve Diamond and their raucous fans, that game was an absolute cracker and it was clear as day on the faces of Danny Cipriano and Ian Keatley how much it still means to win European Cup games. Sale are not a big money outfit, they represent a different and vital element of the Aviva Premiership but for all the animosity that has pervaded it was great to see such an engaging and commited battle go down.

    That was quite the opener, whats about to follow aint exactly a bargain basement tussle either. We’ve a little history with these Saracens chaps. ...

  • Nearly finished but there may be some excitement left yet.

    Nearly finished but there may be some excitement left yet.

    It's not very exciting, really but here's my version of it.


    • Ulster, Leicester, Toulouse, Clermont, Toulon and Munster have qualified for the Quarter Finals, The latter three as Pool winners.
    • The other three Pool winners will be Ulster or Leicester, Toulouse or Saracens and Leinster or Northampton.
    • Whichever of Ulster of Leicester that does not win Pool 5 will get one second place spot.
    • If Toulouse slip-up and don't win Pool 3, they will get the second second place spot.
    • If Leinster fail to clinch Pool One, they could lose out on a second place spot.
    • The last remaining second placed spot is between Toulouse, Leinster, Northampton, Cardiff, Saracens, Connacht, Harlequins and Edinburgh.


    Pool One
    P W D L F A PD TF TA TB LB Pts Pos
    Leinster 5 4 0 1 116 63 53 11 7 1 0 17 6
    Northampton 5 3 0 2 94 101 -7 10 10 0 1 13 9
    Castres 5 2 0 3 75 91 -16 5 5 0 0 9
    Ospreys 4 1 0 3 72 102 -30 3 7 0 1 5
    Remaining Fixtures:
    Friday 20:00 Leinster v Ospreys , Northampton v Castres.

    Leinster need one point to win the Pool. No points would do if Northampton fail to get 5 v Castres. (Leinster won the Head to Head 5-4)
    To win the Pool, Northampton must get five points and hope that Leinster get none.


    Second place is between Leinster, Northampton and Castres. If Leinster don’t win the Pool, they will be second.
    A 4-0, 5-0 or 5-1 win for Castres gets them second place. Any other result gets Northampton second place (unless they get 5 and Leinster get none as stated above).

  • Heineken Cup fourth Round review, what happens next, by Piquet

    Heineken Cup fourth Round review, what happens next, by Piquet

    Pool One
    P W D L F A PD TF TA TB LB Pts Pos
    Leinster 4 3 0 1 87 41 46 8 4 1 0 13 6
    Northampton 4 2 0 2 65 84 -19 7 8 0 1 9 12
    Castres 4 2 0 2 53 62 -9 2 2 0 0 8
    Ospreys 4 1 0 3 55 73 -18 1 4 0 1 5

    Remaining Fixtures:
    Round 5 Castres v Leinster, Ospreys v Northampton.
    Round 6 Leinster v Ospreys , Northampton v Castres.

    A major slip-up by Leinster in Round Four but nowhere near being terminal. Six more points will win the Pool so it’s in their own hands. They could even wrap things up next time out by winning in Castres if the Ospreys beat Northampton.

    Northampton need things to go their way. Two wins would put them on 17 at least and hoping that Leinster lose one of their games or preferably both. They need to overtake Leinster having lost the Head-to-Head 4-5.

    Castres also need favours elsewhere to win the pool. They’re 0-4 down, level on tries and 8 points down from the RDS so their second priority (after the win) next time out v Leinster, is to turn that over. If they were to do that, they would go to Franklin’s Gardens in the last round at most two points behind Northampton and a victory could win the Pool, depending on what happens in the RDS between Leinster and the Ospreys.

    Ospreys are bottom but, believe it or not, are still in with an outside chance of winning out. Two wins would put them on 13 at least. If Castres beat Leinster and Northampton beat Castres, then all four teams would be on three wins each with bonus points and the various head-to heads deciding things. The Ospreys have won the Head-to-Head against Castres 5-4. They are 1-4, one try and seven points down to Leinster and 0-4, two tries and nine points down to Northampton in the respective head to heads. Given that they have only scored one try so far, it’s a big ask!

    As usual at this stage, a lot will depend on Castres’s attitude. If they decide to “focus on the T14” to use the euphemism, then the Ospreys become the Kingmakers.

  • Munster A v Leinster A Match Report

    Munster A v Leinster A Match Report

    Right this will be muddled, but my initial thoughts. Pitch was like tarmac, and small. Ingoal areas were tiny. Penney watched both halves from behind our own goal posts, with a hood over his head (looked like the grim reaper) Both sides bought into the conditions and played attacking, quick rugby. There was shadow boxing going on for the majority of the 1st half, sizing each other up. Young Conway latched onto some sloppy played and scythed his way under the posts. The lad has serious wheels, small, but lightning. Reid was very vocal for Shelbyville, not nearly was willowy in reality as appeared on telly. Munster had slightly more possession and position in the opening half, but I wouldnt say it was a classic half of rugby. Paulie...

    Niall O'Driscoll, Rest in Peace

    The death occurred on Friday of former Munster Branch President, Niall O'Driscoll after a short illness. Niall was one of finest Presidents we have had, and a true Munster Rugby man. Through his diligent committee work, his involvement in the development of Stadia in Munster and the support ODM Financials gave to Munster Rugby, he will be sorely missed. A minute's silence was observed at last Saturday's game against Edinburgh.

    Niall (pictured on left), is survived by his wife Susan and children Gillian, Gareth, Nicole, Nia...

    Laulala In For The Injured Earls
    14 December 2012, 9:52 am
    By The Editor

    Munster make just one change for the return game against Saracens in Vicarage Road on Sunday with Casey Laulala into the side in place of the injured Keith Earls.


    Earls trained in Limerick on Tuesday but later complained of groin trouble and so withdraws with Laulala resuming the centre partnership he enjoyed with James Downey for the Racing Metro and Edinburgh games.

    21st Century Schizoid Men – an introduction to Saracens

    (Article courtesy of eamorugby.com)

    Try as I might, I cannot find a theme to hold this article together, other than dwelling on Saracens' startlingly ability to do the unexpected. I cannot build a frame within which I can adequately describe Munster’s next opponents, so please bear with the contradictions and hopefully you will enjoy what follows.
