Didn't some poster on here say they'd only be annoyed if that happened? Well it's happened!


more worryingly Ian Keatley appears to be scrum half cover

luckily Burger and Hamilton are on bench for Sarries otherwise theyd spend all day trying to take Duncan Williams out

Oliver is playing in the final of the B&I Cup tonight with Munster A. JOD has been off colour recently - maybe he is carrying an injury.

He's not. Neither is Copeland or Oliver. Deysel shouldn't be ahead of any of them.

And yet a short term Saffer import that was purported to be a lock replacement is ahead of both of them? Shocking isn't it :lol:

Ah well, at least no Munster fan can throw up Brad Thorn ever again.

(By the by, I'd pick Deysel ahead of both too, I'm just laughing at the hypocrisy and twisting that some Munster fans have done over the past month about him!)

Guys this thread is toxic and the gleeful putting the boot into Munster at every opportunity is pretty unbecoming. This is the end of my interaction with this forum. Good luck in your semis tomorrow and hope to see you in the final.

What thin skinned nonsense. Are you sure you're not just annoyed because you were one of those defending the usage of Deysel earlier in this thread?

'gleeful putting the boot into Munster' :lol:

The chip is coming out big time this weekend. Good luck to you.

Wouldn't be surprised by a late change - Lloyd is obviously travelling - very very questionable decision - while we are probably only down 2 starters it does show up our depth - if no sh cover then 6/2 split would seem to make sense but the options - jod Darren o shea and conor oliver

Isnt Oliver starting this evening? No sign of Toma in the A side either or is he injured? My bet is Scannell isnt actually fit, he seemed to get a bad injury last week

Oliver starting in B&I Final. Toma - the Kiwi SH? He has gone back to NZ I think.

Hope I'm wrong but I don't see Munster winning this. No Murray and I have my doubts about Stander and Scannell's fitness. Had it been earlier in the season I'd have backed them but I think Saracens have got stronger as the season has gone on and will dominate tomorrow, suspect Munster will find it very hard to get any go forward and break through that Saracens defence. Sweetnam not staring is another blow IMO, would be very useful for mixing it up with chasing kicks against that defence.

A fully fit team had a great chance but I think they're arriving into it in bad shape and I sense a very frustrating day for them.

If you had a guy registered to play who was an u-20 world champion with Currie Cup experience you'd use him, because even playing woefully he's going to be infinitely better than no scrum half at all.

If he plays for YM tomorrow we'll know that the tail is still wagging the dog down there
