Munster played poorly in France, and deserved to lose. But given the reckless and dangerous play by Castres, have they legitimate cause for complaint?
This is the most egregious of the lot.
Clear contact with the eye area. Cowardly, Small Dick Energy stuff from Kockott as you’d expect but how Barnes, his AR and the TMO missed something that was broadcast is something for them to explain to the higher-ups. https://t.co/VuBGrmSIeG

We ask Gerry Thornley and Shane Horgan if professional teams ever go out to hurt an opponent, and if the refs can do more to prevent dangerous play.
Meanwhile Leinster cut loose in the Aviva on Saturday evening and Zebo’s Racing 92 are the form team in Europe, but the big story so far is Ulster’s resurgence under their new coach, with a new backline and an unheralded, unknown prop.
Plus there Ken “MacGyver” Early, coat-hangers, umbrellas, hippy crack and the theme tune to Taxi Driver.
