I'm pretty sure you're right which is why I made the suggestion I did.

As a volunteer involved in underage rugby in Munster I have learned from bitter experience that most of the pronouncements from the IRFU mandarins especially on things like "zero tolerance" for serious malpractice should be taken with a large pinch of salt.

Old School. I've taken the time to write to the IRFU and express my views. I'm not expecting acknowledgement or a considered reply.

Blowing smoke up people's holes seems to work really well, so why would they change tact.

Munster were brutal yesterday. A real problem is emerging for them which is if they can't bully a side they've no other plan.

Sure that has always been a problem for them.

I think in years gone by they had ROG to steer them, sometimes despite themselves, into a winning position. Nobody to do that with neither Keatley, Tyler or JJ looking up to it when the pressure is on.

And yes Zebo and Sweetnam looked like they had been sharing the chocolate spread.

Years gone by they had a pack ROG could play behind. He might help a bit now, but not that much.

Keatley just had one of his meltdowns

FWIW thought Grobbler went well

Has anybody else noticed that Munster's second rows at the moment [Darren O'Shea, Patsy Kleyn and Gerbrandt Grobler Drug Gobbler] look like the bad giants from the BFG? No?

I think Liverpool might have beaten them by a couple of years but thankfully they don't let originality get in their way.

Munster are signing Irish qualified Sale fullback Mike Hayley for next season (via 42)

going by comments Sale fans seem very unhappy hes going which is a good sign, but also oddly people are reacting like hes a project player and not somebody whose Dad/'s family are from Limerick, guess its complicated by playing for the Saxons and England v Babas

personally Im delighted they got someone IQ. Exeter were after him too which is also a good sign
