Let me just ask you a question you’re probably already thinking.  Why the fuck can’t Munster get a group with somebody like Treviso that we could just fucking beat?  Why do we always have to be in these groups with incredibly tough opposition?  Why?

Or failing that, why couldn’t we have Edinburgh?

This is getting ridiculous.

Nothing whatsoever to do with Sky Sports TV ratings..nothing. The Murdoch machine would never stoop so low.

Anyone for a fingernail chewing “winner-take-all” match against Clermont at Thomond Park say about 5:30 on the final day of Pool games!

Grassy knoll time.

clermont will be better prepared for us this time,I think they will take it more serious this time around,with only one team to come out of this group,a result at home in the first game could go a long way to decide the final outcome of the group. they are the best of the third seeds,there was only three french teams in the bottom twelve seeds and we drew two of them.lets hope that montauban don’t find their feet in the competition straight away.the three English teams of sale Gloucester and bath in the second seeds are much the same,all the same I feel Gloucester would love another hop of Munster.when all is said and done a hard group,at least not the hardest,group two this year is going to be very hard to get out of
