The stadium in this Munstershire game is virtually empty.

good wins fro Munster, Ulster and Leinster even though they struggled a bit at home to a poor side.

Could be a long season for Connacht...Glasgow are a top side so hopefully Connacht get their act together in the coming weeks.

ulster side for scarlets

Ulster team and replacements to play Scarlets, Friday 16th September, Kingspan Stadium (kick-off 7.05pm):

Replacements (16-23): J Andrew, A Warwick, R Kane, F van der Merwe, I Henderson, A Lloyd, L Marshall, R Lyttle.

Some backline to be able to put out and still have the likes trimble/bowe/payne/cave not even in the squad

pack will struggle though in Europe even with the likes of Best,Henderson, Henry in there...not enough quality up front to take on the big english and french sides

Donal Lenihan reveals in his book that Woodward was not very helpful to himself or Henry for the 2001 loins tour. Just on that little gem this book is gonna be a big hit. Can't wait for more.

woodword was the biggest bluffer to ever coach an international rugby side...its well known that by the time they got to austrlai the likes of Leonard, Johnson, Hill, Back, Dallagio and Dawson were calling the shots and woodward let them at it

Looks like the All Blacks might be without Aaron Smith for the Autumn games, he's asked to go home (from the SA game) to deal with the fallout he was spotted entering the toilets of Christchurch airport with an old doll ... that wasn't his own.
