Extremely optimistic.A positive spin on that result is that it is a shock to the system, right when it is needed, before Rowntree takes charge.
A humiliation like this cannot be ignored.
It gives Munster a target, beat Leinster. Which is a pretty good target because they're almost certainly the best team in Europe. If Munster can beat Leinster, then they'll be able to beat almost any other team in Europe.
So it gives Munster a target, a chip on their shoulder and a new management team who can't simply keep up business as usual.
Yes, that's a very optimistic spin on it...
Nothing will change. Remember they wanted to give van graan a contract extension.
One of the biggest issues yesterday was a lack of a footballing brain. Pointless runs into contact, pointless passes for the sake of trying to move the ball but without any actual plan or idea or spotting of space to exploit.
Fuck all of our players can make a decent skip pass and fewer are able to receive them.
And of course, the 2 cardinal sins you learn at u12s is not to run sideways with the ball and never take the ball standing were repeatedly committed.
Why are we doing these things???
