    Must say I happy with our team, great to have Keith back and well I delighted Varley starting.
    People know Fla can be a smashing player but at moment Varley is playing better, throwing the better darts and I'm sure he'll do well.

    Absolutely massive game for Warwick too lads as he has to kill a few demons in his head.
    And I can comfirm lads Wallace and Flannery AREN'T dropped for IRFU reason McGahan made the call and well it is a gamble.
    I agree with Varley but Wallace one is debatable but I guess we need one impact sub in the back row.

    I fired up now :D

    Match of the weekend, I reckon,
    Always look forward to these two playing, hopefully will be a good match for a neutral (though i may be cheering on Leinster because my girlfriends family is from Munster so i'll support who she isn't ;) )

    Well Feicarsinn that where you may be wrong lol

    And agree Olyy this can be match of weekend.
    Wally is dropped as well lads in training Niall Ronan was playing the better rugby and McGahan is at a stage where he has nothing to loose so lets peg the heads back to earth and let them all realize it a fight for the jersey and if you earn it be proud.
    Nick Williams has probably been 1of our best players when on field Feicarsinn in last few months as he is playing either for a new contract here or to impress the Ospreys for next year.
    (Just thinking of a back-row with Williams and Collins is a very brutal one.)

    Fla was dropped simply because Varley is on form and Fla is paying for this celeb lifestyle he thinks he has around town.
    He on facebook writing comments, making stupid video's on youtube and just not concentrating and for that he's paying the price. I happy McGahan has reacted from the Biarritz loss by striking fear in to the team that no player is bigger than Munster Rugby and well if you think you are then off you go as we have others who will dye for the chance.

    I really think match is set up nicely for us and well The Aisling Hotel here beside Heuston is some spot roll on tomorrow and the RDS.

    Snoop also agree that Buckley is prone to injury but I think Dave Ryan would've kept him out as well i've seen Dave in past 2months really step up his game in training and well I always thought Timmy was the better brother but Dave really has all Tim's game and more so his development is one to keep an eye on.

    Why are you always at training? How do you know everything? WHO ARE YOU???????

    Anyway, back to the match. The best teams that these two have played against each-other...probably since the Heineken Cup Semifinal in the glory-days of Irish rugby.

    Looking forward to it and making my proper return for the Summer internationals once I finish these pesky exams!!

    Ha Monkey I get to see them majority of days and well know a few it a perk of job lol

    Don't worry I not a coach or a player lol
    Agree too that this is both teams best team since last May in Croker but actually dreadind the tour down under in some way because we are mentally and physically shattered.

    Still on today Munster I eally believe can sneak it but well alot of players are playing for their futures.

    Really? Burn him at the stake!

    Nick Williams strikes me as a flat track bully. He looks great against rubbish teams but put him in against decent opposition and he falters.

    I doubt Dave Ryan would have been picked ahead of Tony Buckle. He's undoubtedly a good prospect but he's no better a tighthead prop than Buckle and doesn't offer more around the field. Come next season when there'll be two props on the bench for each game, Ryan will feature quite often as Marcus Horan's backup.

    Snoop I not burning the man just passing on the info and that was the reason Fla was dropped. As in I agree with McGahan that Fla lost his way a bit but well it is a massive gamble and well dropping Wally is same.

    Nick Williams I agree to a certain extent what you saying but in the last few weeks he really has been good and even when he came on against Saints in Thomond Park he was very good so I hope he produces.
    I agree with you and I'd have Buckley too but well the coaching staff want Ryan there for some reason ahead of Tony I don't know it just McGahan I presume wanting to stamp his authority down.

    I'd expect we'd probably go looking for a prop in summer be it at 1 or 3 as we need to improve our scrum but was also talking to a Paul McCarthy (Munster Scrum Coach) during week and he was on about IRB will be looking in to jersey fabrics in a bid to lower amount of resets in a scrum.

    I really think though we have a nice bench to deploy today which could be a big weapon for us if the game is tight with 15mins to go.
