Nothing less than boys would be expecting question what level of physicality will Munster be expecting back?!

I quite enjoyed that! Much better written than some of the pieces we've seen from "proper journalists".

I am starting to get both nervous and excited about the atmosphere in the stadium!

Nervous is good, complacency is bad. This will be harder than anything so far in European rugby but there isn't a team better prepared. We will be drowned out by a 10 or 15x support base but as somebody sagely pointed out on another post there's 15 each on the turf.

So tactical are Munster that they pretend they are not favourites and they really don't like Nige at all;


They are right about the song though - it is pants

Try reading the other article "I like Saracens" if you want damming with faint praise

Good articles - incisive, funny and rousing in turn. (Any mention of Dodgeball gets a thumbs up from me)

"Something raw. Something cruel. Something gladiatorial" - sounds a bit like my cooking though.

If "This weekend, Munster face the best team in the competition. Saracens are outstanding. They have quality players everywhere you look and they’re excellently coached. Quite frankly, they are at the apex of their development as an elite side." is faint praise then I dread to think what effusive praise looks like!

Personally the articles made my hair stand on end, I am SO psyched about the game this weekend!

The bit that made me laugh was about Tigers back row cheating (Neil Back).........well cast your minds back to the Ricoh Arena 2009 and take a bow Mr Quinlan! You certainly learned a thing or two from Backy.

But of course the players themselves can only do so much. You need complicit referees who pretend to see nothing (untoward) to close the deal.

But as we always say, if an opposition player does it then it's cheating, if it's your own then it's genius!
