Let us be frank. This was a poor advert for the competition. Both sides with understrength teams, players not familiar with starting partnerships and unforced errors ensued. The inclement weather conditions certainly contributed to the scrappy nature of the contest but Munster found a way (somehow) to win the contest. Sky Sports tried to hype up the Munster team on duty but in all honesty, this was a poor performance from the men in red. The only bright spark being the superb pass from Bleyendaal to O’Mahoney for the pivotal try and the several line breaks from Rhys Marshall who looks dynamic in open play. I could seriously bore you with the analysis of this game. Edinburgh had a late chance to win but it was ambitious penalty effort. Munster win. Top of the league and not one for the video archives or review of the season. Trench warfare would best describing of it. I was delighted that Ronan O’Mahoney won the man of the match accolade, a super season from the Limerick winger. Improving with each game. The officiating crew, least said about it the better. Inconsistent at best.
