Dudley? Amazing.

These were one of four league wins last season, so I expect similar this time round. We have lulled them into another sense of false security with our stuttering start to the season and I expect all of our errors to have been ironed out this week and we will blast these jokers away.

In Kingsley we trust.

Yep, the Dud. Does this league have a shred of credibility left?

Can we at least hold off on blaming the ref until the match finishes?

I'm not personally blaming him at all, I just despair when I see him as our referee because he is garbage.

Decent team from us with a tidy bench, except that Crosswell still isn't lock.

Earls out with a hamstring strain, Colm O'Shea at 13.

Nick Macleod has rolled an ankle. Angus O'Brien to ten and Nic Cudd (a flanker) on the bench. In reality now we have no flyhalf cover for AOB, though I guess next in line would be Meyer.

10-10 at the moment after Munster gave away a stupid interception try.

Munster have most of the possession but Dragons holding firm with little contesting at ruck and blanket defence.

Connacht have not had a good start to the season but I don't think that will last, they will be back.

Newport are not an easy side to beat at home so not that surprised by the scoreline.

Apparently stormy weather forced stoppage at 54 minutes.

It's now been abandoned. It was less than 60 minutes so scoreline cancelled.

That's unfortunate for Zebra and very fortunate for Connacht.

Bloody hell- its hard being Zebre. Rack-up four tries against the defending champions at home and you have to do it all over again because a rainstorm didn't start six or seven minutes later.

A big stroke of luck from a Connacht perspective but thats a bit of a kick in the teeth for the Italians, albeit an unavoidable one.

Bleyendaal playing a bit more smartly. Nice grubber kick to turn Dragons again.

Still anyone's game at 16-20

Think it was just three tries. But Lam must be thanking his lucky stars.

And Bleyendaal ducks up receiving a pass and hands scrum to Dragons. He's very patchy.

Good ending. Dragons duck up a last attacking play by knocking it forward.

20-16 to Munster.

He's had time in the Emerging Ireland side a couple of years ago. He's 28 so he'll need to get a move on if he wants to join the line with Furlong, Bealham, Ah You, Kilcoyne, etc.

Do they have to play the whole game again? Or just continue where they left off tomorrow?

Play the whole game again. It was suspended on 54 min. If it was suspended after 60 min the score would be the final result. So Zebre missed out by 6 min.

No idea yet, but he can play both sides of the scrum. He suffers from Ulcerative Colitis (which means he finds it difficult to keep his weight up). He is on a special diet now which seems to have sorted it out a bit.

He started out as a tighhead but was moved to loosehead as Munster had a load of injuries. He is now concentrating on tighhead. He is made of the right stuff anyway, considering all the challenges he has come up against.

He is lively around the pitch too and 28 isn't old for a tight head, it's when they start to peak. I'm sure Mike Ross was around 31 when he made his 6 nations debut.
