First start of the season for Snyman

Casey and Crowley get the nod at half back

Big game for the likes of Coombes and Hodnett if they want to put themselves in the same league as the leinster back row

Hope Snyman and Kleyn are ready to Push as that front row could be in for a touch day

No Earls,Zebo,Conway and Farrell. Conway depending on recovery from his injury probably the only one we'll see next season.

Munster: Mike Haley; Calvin Nash, Antoine Frisch, Malakai Fekitoa, Shane Daly; Jack Crowley, Craig Casey; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, Roman Salanoa; Jean Kleyn, RG Snyman; Peter O’Mahony (C), John Hodnett, Gavin Coombes.

Replacements: Diarmuid Barron, Josh Wycherley, Stephen Archer, Fineen Wycherley, Jack O’Donoghue, Conor Murray, Joey Carbery, Alex Kendellen.
Here's a thought, Kleyn is now eligible for selection for South Africa.
More hopeful than expectant for this one.
I know Munster have a habit of pulling results like this out of the bag but I fear this is a bridge too far and indeed a bridge too soon in terms of the new style of play and their ability to get such a big result while implementing it.
Crowley's lack of game time at 10 is a big concern and Snyman starting such a big game so soon after his return from injury makes me incredibly nervous.

It's Munster in Europe though, logic often goes out the window, they might just do it.
well thats game over now

They were lucky to be only 3 down at half time but 2 quick tries now for the sharks has put this to bed

Munster miles off the level required to be in the mix in this competition
Just embarrassing all round.
I don't know which was worse, seeing bouncy castles and a swimming pool pitch side at a ERC game or Munster's defence.

The fear now is that with Europe out of the equation Munster could throw in the towel for the rest of the season and therefore find themselves in no man's land for next season!

The one positive I can take from it for Munster is that Crowley acquited himself well in a very difficult situation.
He is absolutely Munsters 10 going forward.
