    We all generally knew that Munster would sign Murphy but signing Tuitupou is quite a shock to me. Tuitupou is the same sort of player as Mafi, so are we seeing Mafi staying on the wing or moving to the bench as an impact sub?

    Mafi is more effectiv of the bench giving that bit of power in the last 20 mins.

    Isn't this weeks old lol
    Also Expect Mafi to be retrained over the summer so he can play on wings and at 12 or 13.

    Fairplay to Munster they always sign well.Murphy is far from a flash player but he is very solid and reliable and should fit into the Munster ethos very well coming from another very big rugby city.
