Not the best of games

Exeter just don't seem to understand that they should take 3 pts. Sums up why they haven't performed. I understand they score lots of tries in the Premership but surely in Europe away from home you build your lead

A few law clear ups for me, if two players tackle an attacker they both have to release? Surely its a jackle if the jackle has hands on ball not the body of tackled player. Do munster do this tactic a lot in the pro14? Also why is the ref letting Exeter role round the back of every munster maul? Exeter should kick their goals bloody stupid and the skipper should be all over the decisions.

Their insistence on backing their rolling maul is going to extreme lengths. Sure it saps the energy from the opposition defence but you have to get over the line more than the once if you're going to do that.

Disappointed by the Munster back line. They look turgid. I expected more having watched the game against Glaws last weekend.

Exeter kick to the corner and lose it, Munster get a pen and put themselves in the lead

It's odd watching Garces ref. It's like the new tackle laws were never introduced.

An arm wrestle decided by Chiefs refusal to kick for goal. An odd one.

Agreed Fly - brilliant game to watch - brutal and uncompromising from both teams.

There should be an Anglo-Irish league ideally so we can have this all the time. Whistle

Well Exeter threw a rare win away there. Can't believe they didn't kick their penalties. I hope garces isn't reffing any six nation games allowed both sides to slow the game down. He stands there and doesn't communicate. A few quick whistles and pens for negative play then the game does quicker. I thought he was supposed to be good at scrums too but munster had a couple of shoves and got diddly squat? Personally nowell looks like a quality fullback hope Eddie was watching.

Fair play to Exeter for actuallly scoring a try because the game could have gone on for another 160 mins and there wouldn’t be another. Great game though

Guess which game Garces has got in the first round?

Let me guess Ireland England? Oh boy Eddie better get the lads offloading then or rolling on contact. Mind you it was a total guess for every forward out there. The worst one was the penalty against pom for stealing a line out legitimately. Baffled me all night.

My favourite moment. Early in the first half the Exeter 9 goes to square up to POM.
The Exeter lads rush in.... To get the 9 away as soon as possible, not daring to make eye contact

Now I will admit maybe a little creative licence in the retelling of that , but it was a good old-fashioned smash fest wasn't it

It was like a rocky film in the last round all it needed was a great sound track. There will be some sore bodies tomorrow. My favourite was seeing cj stander running full pelt into armond who didn't flinch and they end up in a tangled heep on the floor. Like two rutting stags, I bet it sounded the same as well.

As for your question about armand and England, I think we are missing a trick here and probably only due to our strict selection policy on not picking oversees born players who have only reached eligible status due to redidency as its just not cricket. Whistle censored

Don is by far my favourite non Irish player. He just gives everything in every game.
And England back row of him Underhill and Graham would be an absolute nightmare to play against.

I think we are all glad that in both leagues we have a better team that scores tries.

Exeter need a strong leader rather than sheep who just follow the leader.  In the Prem do Exeter keep doing the kick to corner and then maul for tries or do they kick pens in tight games

They used to kick for goal quite a bit initially and then they started mixing it up and then this season it's been full on no kicks until TBP. They tended to go to the corner last year but even more so this year.

Carpet Baboon, Graham isn't England eligible anymore he's transferred to Scotland. Wilson, Underhill, Vunipola would be my preference that'd have a good balance.

Yep underhill armand and vunipola is some back row. I think armands ship has sailed unfortunately. Young pretenders like dombrant are more likely than him to feature for England. I was thinking the munster match was crying out for Wilson's skills on the floor. He's also a tough nugget.

If he gets picked. And to be fair so be it. Don't think he's worrying either first side.

Depends on the Hamish Watson injury I'd assume. If he's out then Graham might get his chance either at 7 or off the bench. He's aggression and combative so he'll fit right in with the Scotland backrow.

Watson is better than Graham overall as far as my limited game watching has shown. You can meet fire with fire easily enough but it's more difficult to match pure rugby talent and that annoying knack some spoilers (sorry flankers) have at getting their hands on your ball. That's why barclay and Watson together would have been deadly for Scotland. Still they've got a good enough pack to cause no end of trouble will be an interesting championship.

Hamish Watson is a cracking player but he went off with what looked like a broken hand yesterday so that might open the door for Graham.

In a time where gain line is everything and we'll drilled power teams can rumble on for long stretches scavengers are a must have for every pack. It's an area where Scotland slaughtered England in the 6N last season.
