Brilliant performance by Munster & to think their head coach was a whisker away from joining us.

Not sure if it was a whisker but for me the big difference was Murray's speed and accuracy of delivery with Carberry's orchestration but let's also acknowledge a Munster pack that are back to close to their best

Players of thst calibre with the likes of O'Mahony make coaching very easy

A dominant pack like that also make being a 9 much easier, but CM was excellent, you have to think its Leinster or Munster. I fear a bit for England in the 6N.

I see that Banners wasn’t playing but wasn’t listed as unavailable - is he out of favour / form?

He could be rested, rotated, carrying a slight knock, under the weather etc.etc. It is a squad game so is of little significance.

Think it is simply he is not first choice starter given the wings they have in their squad. Both of them last night are much quicker than Banners and their game was clearly based on running from deep field positions

It said at the time & still can be found online that he was coming to Bath but the SARU put a stop to it as he was still contracted to the Springboks. That sounds like a whisker but it doesn’t mean he would have been any more of a success than TB or Dempsey appear to be.

Before the game I hoped Clermont didn't put 40 points on us - never thought we'd put 40 on them.
With a sharper defence - and it's been a strength recently - and a different ref we could have had them, which would have been an astonishing result as that wasn't a weak Clermont side.

Agree Shendy, amazing game, thought that Dingwall had a lot of time to do his stuff and that Grayson was an excellent young stand in when Biggar got crocked. Super close at the end!

Exeter go through 15 phases in the first three minutes and run in (yes, you heard that right) a great try. Loads of pressure, Castres defence all over the place.

Wish we could hold onto the ball.

Castres red card - how is it even possible for somebody whose career is to play rugby to be that stupid?

Twice in 60 seconds Opti the same player tip tackled an Exeter player then at the same breakdown threw the swinging arm for the red.

Lyon vs Sarries - deliberate stamp to the knee. Brace bottles it and just gives yellow. Terrible reffing, that sort of thuggery has to be red.

Dave Ward on Thomas Young was only yellow as well, seems consistent.
