Glasgow 3 tries up at HT away to Sale and cruising. If they get 1 more and win then Munster will be out regardless of tomorrow.

No harm. At least we avoid a hammering in Dublin. I hope Glasgow end up as the 8th ranked team and get utterly wolfed by Leinster.

Munster making signings for 2020/21. Damien De Allende and RG Snyman RWC Winners signing 2 year deals. IQ'd Matt Gallagher has also signed on a 2 year deal from Saracens. Gallagher's dad John won the 1st RWC with NZ in 1987 and he qualifies for Ireland through a grandfather from Derry and a grandmother from Limerick on his father's side of the family.

Munster Saffers. How come they aren't told to develop their own academy?

Chat is that a local private investor is paying the chunk of the salaries of the 2 Saffers. McManus maybe? Denis O'Brien the newspaper guy did similar when Sexton returned from R92 to D4.

It would seem so. There were the rumours re Pienaar's salary and Rory McIlroy etc.

Anyway.......

Larkham at Munster presumably means the plan is to devise a more attacking game. Then you sign De Allende. Now the guy looks top class but he's not exactly going to be a playmaker.

Snyman one expects will be all good. Desperately needed as Munster second row is poor.

I don't know much about Gallagher but I hope he can prove himself a good full back as the guy we have there now is a terrible player only signed because Josef in a weakened moment thought he was the dog's ballix.

What ever Munster--- need Munster get -- to keep the gates turning in the right direction -- personally I don't think your current full back is that bad -- over rated by some -- should never have been near an Ireland squad -- but he has the ability to make the Munster back line look exciting at times ---- and that's no mean task -- with Mr Boxkick at scrum half and either the over rated JJ or Dingleberry at out half who pick the wrong options and miss time passes.

But I'm not to sure that a second row is really that necessary given the talent in the under 20s that lad impresses me . A couple of weeks in the gym to bulk him up and he could relegate Henderson to the bench and retire Hightower.
