For some reason the electric Francis Saili has been getting a bum rap from some Munster fans.

The All Black centre is fit again and his display off the bench in Glasgow showed he is ready to put some serious pressure on outstanding duo Jaco Taute and Rory Scannell for a starting spot.

And then there's Conor Murray. While Kieran Marmion and Luke McGrath moved the level of scrum half performance up a notch, Murray continues in a different league.

In Glasgow he was singled out for 'special treatment' and received little protection from the match officials.

How he keeps his cool is amazing. I can't recall a player like him in any position. No matter how much the opposition tries he never gets flustered.
