I think it was always Nigel's gig, irrespective of the teams involved. He has a speaking engagement in Dublin on Friday that's been on the cards for a while. Not sure how these things get set up, but assume he knew he was going to be in town anyway when he booked it.

The thing is that even as an Irish province you'd still take Nigel ahead of any of the others, because most of them are useless. The so-called 'home' refs from Munster (Lacey, Fitzgibbon, Clancy) tend to be quite anti-Leinster in their decisions too.

I wonder if both teams have been practising dumping players on their heads this week? It's allowed now, interesting to see how it changes things tactically.

Nige has decided already that head high challenges are fine.

So: player welfare is a top priority for everyone in the game.

can you imagine the meltdown in the valleys if that was an Irish player skating on that charge?

A very shrewd move to throw the game last week, imagine going to a game in this weather?

Whereas you can get the communion over and the child's IPO after done and still have time to make it up the road to D4.

In 80 successive minutes (2nd half Thomond and then today), Munster have conceded 7 tries against Scarlets.

There's been a very noticeable dip in the levels of vim, vigour, freshness etc of the Irish teams in the last couple of weeks of the season

Look at how flat the Munster lads are compared to Liam Williams (I'm naming him because he endured the 6N but really I could pick any Scarlet)

They're lacking a bit of spunk too, and jizz.

A few guys have played themselves out of nailed on Lions jerseys in last two weeks.

Based on my extensive knowledge of strength and conditioning I have come to the opinion that Irish players don't play enough Rugby.

They need to get rid of those sideburns too

Scarlets are really going to miss Liam Williams

Lions/internationals going to be hard on their squad next year plus theyve a vulnerability to injuries
