    Where is Jordan Crane in the no 8 pecking order at Tigers nowadays?
    There's Pearce and Fonua, and is McCaffrey an 8 so Crane must be getting less and less gametime.
    I like the look of Tuilagi and Tait in the centre - the hammer and sickle, perhaps!
    Maybe JDV will be in the squad for SF next weekend?
    Bell seems to be a nice player. He was in the side a month or two back in a televised game and played well.

    Even sky sports don't want to watch Munster LOL.

    1: Crane is prob behind McCaffrey and Pearce, Fonua injured so not sure.
    2: JDV isn't registered so can't play next week ATM
    3: Bell looks a very handy player only 22 I think

    Lovely try from Earlsy, Munster looking far better organised while Stade are disinterested.

    That's what Earls can do. His feet have been lovely all day. The scrum calling is a joke though. We're getting called for walking it around and then we get pinned when they walk it around too.

    Keep him at 15, get his kicking game up to scratch and tolerate his ******* nature. Best bit of rugby Munster have produced all season.

    O'Mahony needs to be far more careful than that. Dangerous

    Game on, can Munster remember how to win?

    edit: It would appear so!

    I hope we keep giving the ball just so I can keep watching Stade get ploughed into the earth. Also I think Brian Lima was a better signing than Amorosino.

    Woohoo. I called it during week. We'd win by more than 7. Earls best game in years. Mario did amazing at THP. Zebo was good at 15 but our backrow really manned up. CJ is a top top player. Has to start vs Wales and in front of Schmidt here today I'm sure he cemented a spot.

    If I ever meet any of you Munster boys in real life the drinks will be on me.

    That is if Tigers get the TBP win V Treviso.

    Your crowd are definitely the lesser of two evils by a country mile for me.
    Billy Holland was actually outstanding today too. Murray was poor for 20 but his old self for the best. Stander really can't not be picked for Ireland in my eyes. Earls had a great game. His defence was even top notch and he's one of the best finishers in this country.

    Crane needs to learn how to be bound to a maul, a more pedantic referee would have pinged him twice now.

    It definitely seems as if Manu is looking to pass before contact a lot more.

    First start in 15 months and it's encouraging.

    You can tell Mauger has worked with his awareness and distribution.

    Promising start for England.

    This will be Cranes last season for us.

    Esp with Underhill coming.

    Great quick thinking try from Youngs, but wasn't the quick throw forwards?
    Certainly looked it to me.
