    yeah he wants an extension, dosen't deserve it though.

    Depends on what he can show Munster when he comes back from injury again and before he gets reinjured. If he shows some of the Celtic league form of last season they'll give him an extension, if not it's off to retirement land.

    I hate it when former greats who have long passed there use by date continue to keep going, a.k.a. George Gregan.

    The frustrating thing was that in his first 7 games he'd scored 8 tries last season or the other way round, not quite sure, so he was certainly showing decent form and then and fecked his shoulder up. Would be surprised though if he comes back showing any sort of form though.

    It's hard to sore with the eagles when you surrounded by turkey's

    there was rumor going around that Cully wants to comeback to NZ
    maybe play in the new NPC comp

    I would still take Cullen over Shannon Paku

    England doesn't interest him, seems intimidated to learn a new language so France is out, I doubt he'd move to one of the Scottish or Welsh sides cause that'd be a step down. So the only option really for him is the NPC.

    Your comment shows your knowledge of European rugby is right up there with your knowledge of the English language.

    Munster. Have. No. Backs.

    Their gameplan revolves around deploying a forward pack, 2 halfbacks, and a bunch of slow players out wide to join in the mauls.

    However they have started experimenting with playing forwards in the backline as part of their eventual plan to play O'Gara and 14 forwards, now fewer than 7 of whom are front-rows. As well as not having to listen to backs wanting the ball it wil also give them unprecedented options at line-out time and the ability to set up an 8-man maul anywhere on the pitch, anytime.

    ah now Munster do have some class in the backs, there's John Kelly, Anthony Horgan, oh right yeah, see your point.

    yeah he's fat too. Not even a decent club player nevermind international.

    Don't be so harsh, he only got run down by Jason Eaton.



    I posted up an article awhile back of Cullen, and He said it was unlikely he would come back to NZ. He also said he cant do the things he use to, But he is a smarter player.

    Cullen also stated that there were games where he only touched the ball once because of the emphasis to the Foward oriented game in the Northern Hemisphere.

    more to do with the weather, lack of backs at munster and his poor form.
