    Some of the Glos players have been awful. Think the occasion has got to them.

    This game could have been more flowing with better refereeing is what I’m getting at. A lot of those scrums could have ended up with open play with a decent ref.

    Although the score is fair. Gloucester look and are crap. Sharples and Hudson would not look out of place in a local club team.

    Sharples has been dire,

    Gloucesters defence has been pretty decent for the most part but their one on one tackle leaves a lot to be desired (which is odd as it's usually the other way round, when a defence creaks)

    Gloucester look knackered.

    I’ll agree it’s on Poite if nearly every scrum is a penalty for the attacking team. Not one side being dominant just odd.
    Lovely try Scannell, hope he has a good game. Beirne was the man of the half and Standers carrying has been effective again. Pretty happy so far.

    Let's face it Munster havn't even gotten out of 3rd gear and are cruising it.

    Has Ackermann's momentum from the first half of the season completely gone now?
    Having 30+ points put against them by Tigers and Sale and most likely Munster.

    I feel like I’ve been cheated a potentially cracking game.

    I swear what Walker is doing with the lineout throws is illegal?

    Two clear turnovers by Beirne there but whatever makes for a better game.

    Munster weren’t particularly rolling away either.

    6 and 1, half a dozen the other.

    The ball wasn’t out the ruck there, but Poite let Murray waltz round - which gives Munster a try.

    Rough try to concede with the gifted penalty
    Kills the game off now, realistically

    I’m surprised they aren’t looking at the pass. It looked forward

    I was wondering why I was finding him so damn attractive.


    Lovely finish by Conway.
