A Munster Mauling - Munster 42 Connacht 20 - Craggy Rugby podcast
Just four games remain in the Guinness Pro 12 season and Connacht remain in the much coveted six position despite two defeats in a row now. Last weekend the westerners trounced 42-20 at Thomond Park and the Craggy crew were in attendance. On the way home they stopped off for an hour to dissect a typically one sided game in Limerick. There’s lots to discuss for host Rob Murphy and guests William Davies, Dave Finn and Alan Deegan as we look ahead to the final few weeks of the season which includes a European Challenge Cup trip to Gloucester this Friday. The topics include Dan McFarland’s departure at the end of the season to become assistant coach in Glasgow, Pat Lam’s fine from the Pro 12 disciplinary committee, the European distraction, Donnacha O’Callaghan’s disruptive performances and the injury crisis that has enveloped Connacht in recent months.
