The late changes forced on Munster (Carbery & Farrell both out) could swing this in favour of Castres. Saw their game against Exeter in Castres and they have a pack who can cope with anything that Munster (also without Klein) can offer up front. Munster need to get out ahead early and prevent the Castres team gaining confidence that this is a day they can win.

Castres gave an exhibition of hard-nosed team work in beating Montpellier in the Top14 Final so these guys know how to do it. The Pool is now up for grabs with Exeter's defeat yesterday so Castres may just be minded to grab it.

The only silver lining from this dog of a game is that even ryle Nugent is subdued

This group could be quite interesting if Munster lose next week. If Gloucester win then they could go top and then they have Munster at home in round five. Not beyond the bounds of possibility that Gloucester could be 4/5 points ahead before the last round.

Next week should be good. Castres were poor today but there was a lot of niggle out there and I'd say they'll be raring to go at home.

Well, that's one assessment worth binning. However, if JP Doyle has a similar bin for performances he'ed prefer to forget, that's where he can put this one.

Agreed, thought he was very harsh on Castres.
