Don't think Taute has been as good since he announced he was here until the end of the season but he's still a big player for them and I think they'll need him. Doubt it will happen but I keep saying that JJ should go to 12, could still be top class there IMO.

Thing about Taute is that he had a pretty good match against Leinster and even scored a consolation try IIRC so to the blind and the faithful that makes him a liiigind irrespective of how little he brings to the team thereafter.

Centre Saili, prop Peter McCabe and lock John Madigan are also set to move clubs at the end of the current campaign

Anyone know where McCabe and Madigan are off too?

Munster should have enough to crush them/anyone at home even if it is their bete noir
When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

The lineout competition will be the key and Ospreys have decent weaponry.

Part of the reason that Munster were so poor against Sarries was that when Stander/Kilcoyne/Taute get shut down in terms of carrying they don’t have any ingenuity to unlock teams – either an attacking structure or X Factor. Saili, whatever about the other parts of his game, brings that in spades. But they’ve chosen to double down on the power game with Farrell and Taute.
It’s only a issue for them against better teams, but unless it’s fixed I can’t see them winning in Europe. Hanrahan might provide a catalyst too.

Can't believe Ospreys are starting Biggar and benching Davies. The latter is so far ahead.

Interested to see Underhill and Tipuric together, TOD will have a busy day ahead of him.

I'd be pretty sure that Ospreys side doesn't have enough to win in Thomond.
