Munster took on Northampton Saints at Franklin Gardens yesterday and a full on brawl escalated between the two teams. There will be citing over this you can be guaranteed, not a good look for the game and a lot of people think the ref bottled it when it came to some of his decisions.

People can make up their own mind here, but for me; 1 yellow each is a cop out https://t.co/UOI1tGdOZ9 pic.twitter.com/CrGQhCJ110

It was a massive win for Munster having lost the weeks before to the giants of French rugby Toulouse. One that they will be happy about and one that should put the men in red back on track. There will be citing for this, this week though, this did not look good and no need for it..
I’d like to know why the two Northampton players that pulled a Munster player to the ground by the neck and then proceeded to hit him was let away with it, IMO I think the two of them should have gotten a red card each
