Tony Buckley's big handoff on Simon Shaw

Tony Buckley handoff on Simon Shaw

With Wasps pounding away at the line, Munster come back with a brilliant countershove, driving Paul Sackey back and dislodging the ball.

Substitute front rower Tony Buckley picks up and sets off. Big English lock Simon Shaw has a go at him but Buckley says 'Sorry mate, the bus is full' and delivers a massive hand off that sends Shaw to the turf.

Buckley then has the audacity to fling a great pass out which creates a counter-attacking opportunity for Munster.

Great to see front rowers doing more than just the dog work in the scrums.

It was a fine pass from a front rower. It also happened to set off an attack by the 3/4 line, awful as the end result was.

Wow! Simon Shaws a big powerful guy at 6"10 and Buckley threw him to the floor like a rag doll and to the anonymmous message before mine please grow up. Ok Ireland had a Bolloc*s world cup but so did Wales, France, New Zealand and Australia and we don't see you taking the piss out of them. Probably because you have even got thte balls to add a name!

Well said Coolfordy. Mr Anonymous up there didn't have the ball to use a name! Great handoff btw. Although Shawy isn't really 6'10. He's 6'8.Cheers all,Martin Johnson....

Is it just me, can anyone else see Stringer shoveling that ball back in the ruck, hands in the ruck? Great counter attack from the irish though.
