    Which Magners League is that, Dewi?

    A little bitter irony Pete, I’ll update with the truth tonight…..

    cracking display by ulster on friday night. Looking as though we are really beginning to gel this season. That said, you never quite know whether we were very very good or if lanelli were very poor – probably a little bit of both.
    The backline are coming to the boil nicely at the minute, with Humph running things from 10 – his goal kicking was even decent on Fri night!
    Backrow is looking superb with Faloon adding the balance that we were missing at 7.
    Hoping for a packed house and a cracking atmosphere come Friday night V Bath. Bath got beat last night, but seemingly they were very good. This game will be a good marker to see just how far we have come since last season.

    Didn;t see the Connacht game but had a good laugh at the Ladyboys v Turnips. Leinster were simply superb. All over the park they smoked (albeit an understrength Munster side) in every area of the game. Leinster are now streats ahead of any side in the Magners and could well dominate this season.

    ps. Did you see the red card for John Hayes? Appalling case of stamping. Big ban coming up methinks.
    Hard one to call later between the hairsprays and edinburgh. i guess if the O’s put our their top side they should win by 10 points.

    Next week is the Heineken Cup and the timing of this shocking result for Munster could not be worse and Northhampton look very dangerous – but, I suppose we should not be too greedy Leinster and Ulster looking really strong.

    The remarkable thing about Munster/Leinster is that if anything the scoreline flattered Munster.

  • Dewi

    With the Scottish stuff it is really getting competitive….what do you think?

    You may also need a similar mathematical adjustment at Croker.

  • Center (It is the submission word)

    1971 was the last time Munster did not score in a game.

    Hopefully Munster wont meet Leinster in the HC until the final.
