Paul O’Connell Admits Something Munster Fans Thought They Would Never Hear


Paul O’Connell has admitted that Munster “without a shadow of a doubt are the fourth team in the country now” and that fans will have to “have realistic expectations” for the coming season.

O’Connell’s comments came last night on Off The Ball however, the former Munster and Ireland captain was optimistic about Munster’s future. He noted that Munster’s new high performance facility in UL is a huge step in the right direction.

It’s a beautiful facility. I think it’s going to be very good for them. But the big thing has to be about strengthening the squad as well, and producing good players out of the academy, getting the recruitment right.

Hopefully things like the facilities will supplement that as well…(Munster) can really build here from a solid base.
