Munster vs Cardiff Blues

Post by wales606 on Fri 09 Sep 2016, 7:45 pm

Anyone watching this!

The Blues offloading is insane!

It results in an early try for Tom James following several excellent offloads

And Munster hit back immediately from some of their own offloading and some poor covering from the Blues back 3

5 - 7

Yep. Pretty exciting. Munster winning the kicking game at the moment, also doing well in the contact area, but Blues look a better attacking threat and are making more break

Scrum V commentators reckon Nick Williams used to be a Munster favourite... I remember their fans singing a different tune! He wasn't highly rated at that time. To the extent people couldn't believe Ulster were signing him.

He'll be a big asset to the Blues. Literally.

Munster really causing the Blues problems in the air. Didn't like that hand on Fish in the air just then though.

Gethin Jenkins nailed fair and square by the officials and he still mouths cowpat at the decision.

It seemed a bit harsh to me at first, but replay shows it was a fair enough call. Cardiff just get a Try.

That was demonstrably clear. Done with intent to achieve the try.

Yeah, he is one the better ones - in that I don't associate his name with pedantry or awful decision making like half the refs in the league.

I don't know why he'd be holding and pushing players off the ball if he wasn't trying to create an obstruction, so not sure why he was so surprised.

Good game this. Blues look pretty good. Could be the year they finally stop under performing?

I'm lucky.  I don't associate any refs with pedantry or awful decision-making.    Or what country they're from either.

Makes games much easier to watch and enjoy.

Well we finally have a good coach who knows the players and has had a chance to embed his system. We finished last season on an excellent run and look to be continuing it this season.

Mostly when I hear the name Lacey or Clancy, or most of the Scottish officials.

Munster, on the other hand, do not look great. This is the second week they've been dominated in terms of possession and territory but this time the Blues have made a lot more yards than the Scarlets, and shown a lot more imagination too.

Can still win this game but I'm underwhelmed by the home team so far.

Munster blew a great try scoring opportunity due to O'Donoghue's stupidity at going off his feet.

And O'Donnell almost inevitably injures himself. Not a bad replacement in Stander though.

Good scrum statement by Munster as they chew up half the pitch and get a penalty for their efforts.

Hmmm. Bit of a high tackle missed there by the officials.

Munster injecting a bit more pace in their attacks.

And they've lost their pace again. Williams is a bit of a plodder at times at the base of the Munster scrum.

Jeez. Munster player gets yanked back around the neck from a lineout catch in front of the ref who doesn't see it. Luckily, the asst. ref does.

Yellow card? Nope.

Blues clinging on at the moment. They need some possession, and ideally 3 points.

Munster turn it on in the scrum at the right time and win a penalty off a Cardiff put-in. 3 points from Keatley?

Munster now playing really well here. Jekyll and Hyde from Munster- this is a different Munster team from the first half entirely. Cardiff will break if they can't get some sustained possession.

And there it is. All from the Blues throwing away the ball in possession at the other end.

Frustrating from the Blues at the moment.

It misses unfortunately.

20-17 to Munster on 65 mins. A few subs with James for Anscombe, Morgan for Shingler and O'Leary for Williams.

Deja vu. another Munster turnover at the maul.

Blues can't keep possession for more than 10 seconds at the moment.

Stupid kick by Munster and Cardiff come straight back and put it through hands to score a lovely try.

Shingler kicks the conversion and it's 20-24 to Cardiff

11 minutes to go.

Warburton gives away a penalty with side entry and Keatley elects to kick for posts from 35 metres out.
