Or Holy Communions/Confirmations!!! Leinster supporters were at the games rather than watching on tv :twisted: Sure the Leinster average attendance is massively inflated each season due to the draw of Munster coming to town, so much so that they have to move the match to the Aviva. :D Ah, the annua...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

All joking aside, it is very interesting to see these figures. You would definitely expect Leinster and Ulster to have stronger viewer numbers given their populations compared to Munster, the noise around the style of play and Munster’s lack of success compared to Leinster. These published numbers c...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

The introduction of the SA teams has had a very positive impact on the viewer number for the regular season. This can only be seen as a massive positive, as hopefully these numbers can translate to greater sponsorship. Very interesting to see how Munster place in terms of viewer numbers, featuring ...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

Some great interviews here. As already mentioned by Dropkick, Prendergast looks to be a very exciting addition to the Munster set up. His pathway to joining Munster has meant that he has gained so much knowledge, coaching in different environments. This coupled with the fact that he has played in I...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

You are reading what you want to see, as you are a person with a certain view. I clearly stated that I wasn’t claiming that he was good enough for inclusion in the Irish squad, or even to become first choice ahead of Farrell in the Munster squad. If a guy is coming to Munster with his profile less ...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

Less and less subtle... Will you get over yourself. Saying that a player will be pushing for inclusion in an Irish squad can only be perceived as a wind up by someone that is ……………. If you believe he, or any other IQ player won’t be doing everything in their power to put their hand up for selection...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

I think there could be something there with Goggin as a 12. He's physical and is a good passer. He's fairly limited as a 13, in my opinion. It'd be interesting to see him under good attack coaching. I think Frisch might be being a bit overhyped. He's played very little top level rugby for a 26-year...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

Frisch will provide some really good depth in the middle of the park, and I doubt he is coming to Munster to just make up the numbers. He will be pushing hard for inclusion in the Irish squad for the RWC. I’m not saying that he is good enough to make it, as I have limited knowledge of the guy, and ...

Re: Grahamunster - Graham Rowntree's Munster 2022/2023

The most interesting addition for me is definitely Prendergast. I just mentioned Mike Catt on another thread and Prendergast's philosophy is similar to the way ireland attack. Larkham was known to have a complex attacking system but I think Prendergast will go the Ireland route of plenty of attacki...

Great bit of business by Connacht.

An experienced short term signing can really add to a squad.

Great to hear that RG has started his pre season. Although he has been with Munster for a couple of seasons now, he will be like a new signing. With himself, Kleyn, Wycherley Ahern and Beirne, Munster have some really good options in the second row, and will be in a position to mix things up when r...
