Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
This season hasn’t exactly gone according to plan so far for Munster. The southern province has been hit hard with injury and went crashing out of the Champions Cup over the weekend at the pool stage.
With holders Saracens and French giants Racing 92 both in their pool, qualification was never going to be easy. But having reached the semi-final stages for the last couple of seasons they will be disappointed.
Stephen Larkham and Graham Rowntree both joined their coaching ticket this season with high hopes. But they must now put all their focus on the PRO14 in order to get seeding for the Champions Cup next season. If they win the competition they will be tops seeds and in a much better pool than they were this season.
The likes of Joey Carbery and Tadhg Beirne will hopefully be fit again come the start of next season and fans can also get excited about the fact that Springboks Damian de Allende and RG Snyman are Munster bound.

De Allende played a key role for South Africa at the World Cup, starting in the final against England. Snyman meanwhile has been absolutely tearing it up in Japan. Clips of the lock having been doing the rounds on social media and they are guaranteed to get Munster fans excited.
This man will no doubt bring some much-needed grunt to Munster’s pack next season. And boy can he move too. Don’t worry Munster fans – good times aren’t too far away.
RG Snyman absolutely carving up in Japan.
