Interesting not to get Berg back, he must be needing some gametime, could end up playing a lot of rugby next week if anything happens to Nel, or would they see Nel as a sub still and Berg starting?

We should still be able to put our a strong squad.

Hope Darcy isn't serious, we need him and Kinghorn back playing soon.

Its a trickyb one.Bergham needs game time but there really is no one behind him and Nel (with apologies to D'Arcy Rae!) so obviously both now in cotton wool. (Glad though as it will allow Macallum some game time-finally).

I reckon Berghan will start. Nel's role remains consistent then and it's one he does well from the bench.

No surprise VDW back given Hastings is back for Glasgow. It is unlikely both will get injured and miss France...

Arguably four No. 8's in the 23. Must be a lot of 2nd rows injured-Toolis,Hodgson,Ferreria,Carmichael all unavailable?
Very strong Munster team listed!

Munster fans thoughts on their side

"Strong team.We should be winning this."

read it out before the game! Cockerill like sot be underdogs! Job done!

TBF Munster fans on their message board are "different" :lol: but on this occasion on this season's form they are probably right to be uber optimistic, that is a very strong side

Matt Currie was exceptional for the under 20s in his first year eligible. One to watch for sure.

Not a bad Merchiston backline that year: Dobie, McLean and Currie.

I don't get the game plan, we ran a nice backs move from a scrum that gets us to 5m out from the line, so from that scrum we go for incredibly slow pick and drives until we knock on.

Munster are growing into this because we have failed to score when we were in the red zone
