    Very nice deal for Munster. Brugnaut has only been improving in the last seasons, and as Dax are playing in D2 next year, he didn't have a club, so Munster probably won't give him a huge salary. It's going to be a great adventure for him, but will he have enough game time to make his point?

    He should get a decent bit to be fair. Hayes and Horan aren't the youngest(esp Hayes) and pucciarello is gone. Couple that with the inability to scrum of Tony Buckley and Denis Hurley still being a bit raw means he should get enough to keep him in contention for the French setup

    1 or 3 or both?

    Either way, good news. We are building a savage squad, numerous options in almost every position, great to see.

    I was personally impressed with Buckley in the Churchill Cup for Ireland A. He seemed to be able to scrum there. However he is tall for a frontrower (I have the same problem as I usually get put there too).

    Well it's en even better deal for Munster then, as Brugnaut is a rock-solid scrummager. He was trained in the old-school Dax front row style, which has always been very impressive over the years. I remember their scrum destroying the Paris scrum last year...
    He can play both 1 and 3

    But can he hang around on the wing and score enough tries to make up for all those penalties? ;)

    He's a perfect replacement for Marcus Horan!

    It was two years ago, last year it was the opposite, Paris scrums remembered and destroyed Dax front row.

    Brugnaut was also destroyed when he played against Ireland last year in Paris, not saying much when you get into serious trouble against the Irish front row, despite their obvious improvements.

    What do you see as Tony Buckley's actual problem?

    he's always struck me as a lazy *******, no doubt there's potential there for him to be a replacement for Hayes but more often than not he flatters to deceive. I know he struggled last season cause of his pneumonia so I'll cut him some slack, but you'd definitely be looking for a marked improvement this season, maybe signing Brugnaut could be the kick up the arse he needs.

    I think he just doesn't like scrummaging to be honest, it's more of a distraction that stops him playing his game.

    He also dislikes hard work. He reminds me a little of Malcolm O'Kelly in that he has bags of talent but needs a kick up the arse every couple of months so that he doesn't fall into bad habits. Buclkey can be a destructive presence at rucks, has the power to be an exceptional lineout lifter and isn't bad with ball in hand or defensively. He's solid in the scrum if the mood takes him though he'll never be top class in that department.

    It's not worthy of it's own thread but Munster made another addition to their squad yesterday. Danny Riordan signed from Connacht on a short term deal having impressed during a recent trial spell. He has issues with his confidence and is poor defensively but could be a decent addition as a backup winger.

    Once we get rid of all the Bradley he'll be a fine player! Wasn't he a very highly rated youngster not too long ago?
