Is molony not fit yet? I'm sure he trained last week in the build up to the final? Toner was limping before he came off last sat. Wouldn't be surprised if fardy started in second row

Got to think that KGB will play - my bet is that Fardy isn't in the 23. But could be Lowe out I guess but would have thought not
I like your right leg. A lovely leg for the role.
I've got nothing against your right leg.
The trouble is ... neither have you

I hope Lowe plays. Have to play your best players in this type of match. That guy could be the difference between winning and losing. Hope dk gets a run off the bench as don't see the point in rol providing cover.

On paper (I know the teams haven't been announced) and using Saracens as the yardstick we should beat Munster.
Fatigue, injuries and mental well being would be the main concerns.
Could the refereeing team be a factor.
Would we fancy playing Ulster(again) in the final?
The weather isn't looking great which would be a negative.
Our opponents defensive nous and the knowledge they will have gained from watching how Saracens dealt with us.
Iscariot (only joking, think he's a great player tbh) v Sexton could be an interesting match up assuming Sexton is fit.

DISCUSS :wink:


Yeah, JI v Jonny10 will be box office alone.
We on paper (and any other form of measurement you care for) are a step ahead of them - BUT - they aren't bad, have a massive chip on the shoulder and know us inside out, which throws everything up in the air. It's primed for them to come up and knock us over.

Hope to hell we turn up after the emotion of last weekend, and send them back down the N7 with their brave and faithful tail between their legs!

Benches could win this. Not much for Munster to bring in, meanwhile we have serious impact.

Delighted with those sub forward options in particular, will really test Munster with carrying.
Tracy getting a little kick in the hole for throwing last week?

Good to see DK in there too, he deserves it on form.

Would be a little annoyed if I were HOS I think.
McCarthy is the right choice, but there's probably not much in it.

They only went with three Leinster men, big mistake.

Also no room for Fineeeeeeeeeeeeeeen. He once tackled a number 10 off the ball and became a Ligind. Hard as nuts is Fineeeeeeeeeeeeen.

C'mon Leinster!

Great to see JVDF back and Average Dave (as our friends down south call him) is ready to strike again !!

No last hurrah in the RDS for Seanie and Jack and possibly Rob (although nothing definite here yet). Good luck lads and thanks.

If we don’t win resting Sexton for a home semi against Munster will be next to unforgivable

I don't believe for a minute that Stander will play 7. "Munster" are abandoning all pretence of being South African and now starting their openside with number 6 on his back and their blindside with number 7.

a bit off-track here... but if you ever wondered about crowd size @ Thomond Matches... This is information on their Season ticket...

Having a Season Ticket entitles the holder to the following:
• Highest level of discount.
• Kids go free!*
• Transfer the tickets you can’t use to a friend.
• Access to best location within Thomond Park and Irish Independent Park.
• Access to all three home Champions Cup pool games.
• Entitlement to purchase the same seat/terrace for a home Champions Cup quarter-final (if we reach that stage of the competition).
• Access to all home PRO14 games in Thomond Park and/or Irish Independent Park.
• Entitlement to purchase tickets for away games**.
• Entitlement to a discount on additional tickets and reduced booking fee.


And................................

* All full MRSC members can bring up to two juniors for FREE to all PRO14 games (excluding Leinster, subject to availability).

No wonder they're in debt and not making much progress on that score....
