RE: Ospreys vs Munster - the Teams
So they drop Isaacs from the team altogether (who did damn well when he came on), drop Ryan from the 15 (one of the better players and only one that bothered with the breakdown in the starting XV), drop Paul James despite needing to establish dominance up front and keep Webb despite him looking about as good at 9 as I would

Some cracking choices then....

RE: Ospreys vs Munster - the Teams
13 is e serious problem for the O's isn't it ? Parker's too old and slow (or just cba, I can't decide) & Bowe might be in the top 3 or 4 wingers in world rugby but his passing is bloody terrible and his defending when he has the touchline to help him is hardly text book, never a 13.

Bevington looks like he's got all the physical tools, but he seems to be the O's John Yapp (penalty machine, short fuse, easily distracted or wound up) I'll be interested to see how he does against Hayes.

And I'm with Nick, did they pick the O's back row out of a hat ? Tipuric & Holah are pretty similar & JT's not playing well is he ? Ryan Jones is the best 8 they've got when it comes down to the nitty gritty tight stuff & Munster love a bit of the "old bosh" as the old people say don't they ?

Gotta love a start for Hibbard mind you but will somebody please tell Gough to retire ? He makes me feel young, I saw play against for Newport V Llanelli when Frano Botica was playing for Llanelli !!!

Fair play, nobody can field a bench as strong as the Ospreys bench.

Only item that plays a team part is that bench.

RE: Ospreys vs Munster - the Teams
Does it still count as strong bench if most the players on the bench should be starting ? lol

Anyone watching the game?

Ospreys 3 - 10 Munster at half time.

Highlight of the game so far was ROG bashing a rampaging Hibbard into touch. Big Grin

RE: Ospreys vs Munster - the Teams
It's like a display of how not to run a blitz defence, every time Bowe flies up they pick him off inside or out ! Tipuric's having a decent game & JT made a break, I haven't seen him do that for ages (maybe years) and laid some timber on ROG too, that was mildly amusing. :-D

Brilliant fightback by the os, but heartbreaking way to end the game.

RE: Ospreys vs Munster - the Teams
Typical Munster in the end but Jerry Collins, oh dear. Not the way to play your last home game by giving it away like that.

Do Kamakaze pilots wear helmets?
