Inability to stop a 20m maul had no effect on the try?

It really was, JJ was a better 10 than Keatley before he left. Massive loss to Munster.

It looked like that. But a subsequent angle shows Cole pushing the Munster 6 who then collides with the Leicester 5 who 'stumbles' backward into Conway.

It was street smart by Cole - thems the breaks.

To be fair, Cole did nudge him but only slightly and certainly not as hard as the Munster 6

Nice bit of sniping by Youngs there Smile

Good to score when down to 14 too. Munster's defence parted like the Red Sea though.

There was some pushing and shoving and Fitzgerald gets knocked into Conway it's a whole load of nothing.

That's never a yellow card. "Third penalty for dangerous play or tackle" when were the other two?

The Munster players being driven back hit the deck and the bound on Tigers players went with them.

Bell is out of his depth at ten at this level. Williams is a big loss.

Munster just look uncomfortable when they have the ball. Apart from the odd break, they just don't appear to be functioning at all.

There's too many players from both sides talking to Poite. It just gets irritating to watch and listen to.

Hate both, moaning to the ref and players holding onto the ball

Easier than expected for the Tigers. Probably will be a bit disappointed not to get a bonus point.

Excellent win though.

I think they were more concerned about making sure that Munster didn't get a LBP and couldn't force a nervous few minutes. I'd have liked some more ambition there.

Nice to see Camacho finally get his debut and Thacker get on and get involved. Ballsy throw to the tail on his first throw and in our 22. Fantastic result and a great team effort. So happy after the limp dross that was our best effort last season this is so good to watch.

Munster simply not good enough for this year.

They've a bit to go yet in creating a team that wins honours.

Just turned the match on in time to see the last three minutes. The commentators were saying Munster had 70% possession in the first half. Is that right?

I was catching up on the match by reading the comments on this thread. Were Leicester really better? In Thomond Park? That is remarkable. Thomond is usually a great place to watch Rugby as a visitor if one likes to see their team lose (but with great folk in the stadium).

Leicester looked the better team to me Doc. And yes Munster had loads of pocession first half. Munster didn't look right, not decisive and not that much self belief. Leicester on the other hand looked measured and confident.

A bit of good luck I have to admit but I'm glad the rest of the performance was good enough that no one could reasonably say they didn't deserve the win. As I said before the game I'd have been perfectly happy with 4-1 to Munster so it was a surprise that I started getting greedy towards the end feeling like Tigers should've gone for the TBP.

I'm fully expecting a proper Munster performance next week. Should be a cracker.

Wasn't the first offence a push by a Munster player?

It looked like that. But a subsequent angle shows Cole pushing the Munster 6 who then collides with the Leicester 5 who 'stumbles' backward into Conway.

It was street smart by Cole - thems the breaks.
To be fair, Cole did nudge him but only slightly and certainly not as hard as the Munster 6

You need to look at the incident again from the angles that BT have shown a few times now.

Foley must think he's Mourinho Smile

I would imagine Poite will have told him to b*gger off to his dressing room!

Btw mods/admins I've been getting served ads that have taken over my browser (iOS) and redirected to other pages.

I've mentioned this elsewhere, but an app called crystal was the best 79p I've spent in a while to solve that kind of thing
