The Breakdown EP102: Benetton Review, Coaching Departures & Champions Cup Preview

Ok so Munster didn’t exactly rock the rugby world with their performance against Benetton last week but at the end of the day the scoreboard showed a 15-13 win for the home side and a semi final date with Leinster next weekend.

We cover a quick review of the game plus taking a look at who might replace Jerry Flannery and Felix Jones who have departed the Munster coaching ticket during the week.

All that plus some player movement and approaches while we also look ahead to the Champions Cup Final as Leinster chase their 5th star against Saracens.
