Heard on the Left Wing pod that Munster probably had to write off a NIQ to keep POM and CM so likely the hooker.
That makes senses.

"Former Scotland captain Stuart Hogg was arrested by police outside his estranged wife’s home, less than 24 hours after his country’s victory over England in the Calcutta Cup.
Hogg, who played 100 times for Scotland and is the country’s all-time leading try-scorer, retired in sudden fashion ahead of the World Cup last year, despite being named in the training squad."

Munster Rugby are pleased to confirm that the province will take on the All Blacks XV on Saturday November 2nd at Thomond Park (5.30pm).
Since the redevelopment of Thomond Park in 2008, Munster Rugby have hosted international opposition in the form of the All Blacks, Australia and the Māori All Blacks at the Limerick venue.

It seems so unfair to the other Provinces to see all these touring games being allocated to Munster. Most of the games played against touring opposition have been total rubbish. If there are enough suckers down in Cork and Limerick, willing to pay good money to watch these games, well more fool them
It is also appropriate to say that there has been much moaning about long injury lists down in Cork. If they keep adding additional rubbish friendlies I have no sympathy for them

Big game at the RDS on Friday night, Leinster 1st host the Bulls in 2nd. 4 point gap. Leinster still to travel to South Africa, Bulls in Rounds 14 - 18 have 4 home games on the high veldt and a game in Durban.

All about seeding.

Leinster leading 26 14. Very impressive indeed. Great handling and determination such as Ulster fans can only dream of. Credit where due- Leinster deserve their ranking.

33 14. 5 tries for Leinster. And their younger guys look very good indeed. 14 mins to go.

One way traffic in 2nd half. McGrath was lucky enough to only get a yellow in first half.

Important for Leinster to go 8/9 points clear of Bulls whose remaining 5 league games are all in South Africa and Leinster still to go down there.

Osborne and Russell are very promising backs. 47 14 final score. Annihilation! Ref off injured. Busby on. Leins kicked it off. Too early by 2 secs.
