Live on Premier Sports


Two teams on good form, judging by the European games over the last two weeks, but that probably counts for very little in predicting this game, as both teams will be without the bulk of their international players, who will be prepping for the Autumn International series.

I actually enjoy these games, partially due to their unpredictability and also because I like to see the next generation of up and coming players get their opportunities to prove that they belong at this level.

Having said that, both sides have pretty deep squads and will be able to put out a decent team, with plenty of international players still available and others who are on the fringes.

Thormond Park is rarely a happy hunting ground for any team, whichever Munster team is playing, as home victories are seen as a basic requirement. Glasgow along with most other teams have always struggled there. However what bragging rights there are this season, belong to the Scots, who won the home leg quite convincingly and are sitting on top of their conference, not that it will count for a great deal on Saturday afternoon.

History suggests a Munster win and it will need a big performance from Glasgow to upset that.

Glasgow have added a bit of bite to themselves this season. Much shared to boss about.

Munster luck but as long as they get wins it's ok. If it had finished 24-10 Munster would have been level with Zebre. Hard to judge Van G but not sold on him

I think with the team we took over there, to come away with anything from the game was a result but to play the way we did and get 2 points was beyond expectations. The margins were very very tight at the end of the day and that last call could have gone either way.

Coaches are realistic, we are not going to win every game and sometimes, going forward the performance is as valuable as the result.

Was just watching the first half replay this morning before work (missed it on Sat) and the "forward pass" from Gibbins to P Horne before halftime which was a guaranteed try looks absolutely fine from what I can see. Camera angles can be deceptive but considering Horne was behind Gibbins at the time of the pass I think it was the wrong call there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=box08lq9ylg

No point crying over spilt milk, but by the way forward passing is adjudicated these days, that was incredibly unlucky. Maybe the Thormond Park crowd had something to do with it, it was definitely a home town call!

The Stander clearout at the last ruck where they won the penalty was both early and high and beyond the ruck, but they got away with that one as well. Still they had nothing to lose at that stage, so why not give it a go, it proves nothing else to what we already know, that Munster remain a streetwise team!
