Thought it was a typical pre season warm up game, but we looked ok!
Negatives, which is always a risk in these necessary games were the injuries to Cai Griffiths and big Chris H. Hope they are not too bad.
I liked the shape of the team, TOL was very impressive whilst on, sharp, good passing and aggressive, think with him and Darren we are good at scrummie. Geraghty looked ok too way better than Shingler. With Ian Humph coming in I would like to see Shings play 12 more as he can do those subtle off loads so well. Joe Ansbro tried hard and ran some good lines but is not a Maps! (who was in attendance). Not a hole puncher but still a good player. 12 could be a worry. JJ is class at 13, wings ok and Tommy H class as always.
Pack was ok to me as well they all did ok. Chris H is such a good ball carrier, that boy just loves contact! Lineouts were good, scrums looked solid. All in all a good pre season workout against reasonable opposition.
Think Munster lost their first pre season game v Stade Rochelais in France, they won't like losing another one at home
