All based on Zebo the crowd pleaser staying for the full 10 years...... Whistle Oh dear, the refund requests will be starting any day now Run

Ah sure send Lowe up to Ulster, there's no prospects to block up here.

Isn't Lowe a future Irish prospect?

EOS never did grasp the concept of squad rotation. The professional game demands it and Leinster manage it better than most. Over exposure of inexperienced youngsters is almost as detrimental to their development as too little gametime. The "Against the Head" team were suggesting Stockdale might be dropped for Larmour, yet they picked out his errors for the tries in the Italy match, so presumably Lowe must be stopping Larmour learning wing-play properly?

Thank God for Brent Pope. The only man who ever makes continuous sense on those RTE panels... and that includes the oft lauded past contributor, Conor O'Shea.
EOS tripped himself up in his own logic and then got hot when Brent pointed it out to him.

I do not share his views but he does have a point. Leinster are currently churning out players left right and centre and probably do not need to have Lowe. That said, he is not really blocking any future Irish prospects as far as I can see.

Fergus McFadden is being blocked by him, a great looking young prospect.

That was funny, Popey and Eddie were at it a few times, I though Pope was going to swing for him as Eddie kept talking over him.

So, Jamie Heaslip is to retire. Sad ending to what has been a great career. Best of luck in the future.

I think Jamie is looking at what's out there and seeing all these new faces and thinking 'even if I did get back... I'd have to work like a dog to move some of these new fellas now'
Not worth the hassle.  He's right.

He and Tommy should now get an Irish version of Top Gear going.  It wouldn't have to be about cars either (I hate motorheads!) but a lad's show with the two of them having the craic.  Sexton could join them when he retires for the comedy bits..... Cool

That's completely not on fly, the lad has had two major surgeries to try and save his playing career. You're dragging his name through the mud by claiming that he wouldn't have the fight in him, That he's a lazy player that wouldn't do it as its not worth the hassle! A complete character assassination.

Munster set to sign Irish-qualified fullback Mike Haley from Sale Sharks

http://www.the42.ie/munster-mike-haley-fullback-signing-3874067-Feb2018/

Surprising move since Haley is on the fringes of England team (played for Saxons and England v. Barbarians).

He is being brought in as Zebo is leaving.

Plenty of players have gone from Munster that I don't mind losing, but Zebo is a huge loss from every point of view (on and off the pitch).

He is a good player alright and a positive character but Ireland aren't missing him that much so who knows maybe this Haley guy will prove to be to Munster what Stockdale is to Ireland now. Wouldn't that be good?

Stockdale is a wing, not fullback. Zebo plays fullback for Munster and Ireland. If you are comparing Zebo to anyone, it should be Rob Kearney, and I think there are a quite a few Irish supporters who would prefer to see Zebo at fullback for Ireland.

Does Zebo not have more caps on the wing for Ireland than fullback?

Since Felix Jones' retirement Zebo has moved to fullback for Munster. With Stockdale now doing so well with Ireland, I'd say Simon would have been starting fullback. With him at fullback, Ireland would have some attacking back 3 players with Stockdale, Earls, Conway and Zebo.

I doubt it. For Ireland he was a winger that occasionally covered full back.

I watch a fair bit of the Aviva and in my opinion Haley has gone backwards this year and is nowhere near the England team.

Can be exciting going forward but flakey defensively, particularly under the high ball

Hopefully, some of his relatives from Kerry (Granny from Tralee) will sort out the high ball bit. He is signed now anyway.

But he was a wing for Munster first, wasn't he? He can't be swapping around in his Province and expecting Ireland to go with the flow. We already had our world class full back.

That seems to be the gist of what the Sale fans are saying on their site. But at least there is talent there that Munster can get out of him.

My god Munster are in some bad shape.

Playing at home against the Scarlets and kicking every available ball to them, would not mind if Munster were challenging but the kicks are too long and the Scarlets have all the room to attack...

Just in case anyone thought rugby was actually popular in Ireland...

https://www.independent.ie/sport/rugby/ewan-mackenna-in-this-lazy-era-of-event-junkies-irish-fans-dont-love-sport-they-love-winning-36757687.html


It's already been buried under the weight of mood and marketing. And, of course, marketed mood. But it's worth remembering that short of two-and-a-half years back, the Munster brand was in trouble.
At the beginning of 2016, after just 7,200 had shown up to Thomond Park for a derby with Ulster, the province had shifted only 160 tickets for an away-day with Stade Francais of which 40 per cent were purchased abroad. The late Anthony Foley even bemoaned the terrible interest and attendances, stating that "the umbilical chord has always been there between Munster and our supporters. It's important people come and support us. You've got to come and sample it".
His appeal didn't work however with the Munster hierarchy soon releasing a step-by-step guide titled 'Respect', telling the few showing up how to behave after booing greeted defeat after defeat.

Much has changed since, such is the way of peaks and troughs. Half the country claimed to have been present in 1978, two men and a dog were there in the '80s and much of the '90s, by the 2000s they were the ultimate Celtic Tiger team via wine weekends to south France where the game was only part of the luxury package, and now they're back to an impressive degree. What they show better than most is the bandwagon nature of rugby and, beyond that, of Irish sport......

Important to remember that he is only 23 and that players that break through as young as him often have a dip in form at some point. He looked very good vs Worcester last weekend though Wuss were shocking and seemingly couldn't tackle.

If Munster have a decent coach or mentor for him you should have a good fullback for the next decade because he has the footballing skills, the swerve and the speed you just need to refine the positioning and his work under the high ball. Let's face it nobody is better under the high ball than the Irish so I'm sure you can teach him a thing or two.

Pot, every club has a core of fans that turn up whatever and then the rest are dependent on the weather, form and opposition. People were threatening to send back their Tigers season tickets before Christmas we were so Poopie, no hint of that now we've got a competent forward coach in.

Oversimplification of the problem. Using Munster as an example shows a lack of understanding of the problems Munster brought on themselves due to the business decisions that they made. But then again expecting any kind of depth or analysis from you outside of the bleeding obvious would be a bit too much I feel.

Pot. You pontificate on here like you have some inside knowledge of Irish rugby because you once smelt a fart from someone “big” at a schools game in Leinster. When in fact you or Ewan don’t have a friggin clue as to what are the issues with Munster ( for example). As I said your tendency to state the bleeding obvious is a good way of dumbing down any discussion on here.

Who’s likely to be added to that list?   Think Connacht have finished shedding. Ditto Leinster.   Is Bleyendaal likely to recover at Munster?  Payne presumably will retire from playing at Ulster.  What about any of Herbst, Coetzee, va der Merwe, Deysel, Ludik, Ah You?
