Munster can send Bradley back to Edinburgh with tail between legs

THE proof of the pudding has definitely been in the way the PRO12 clubs have eaten up opposition in the Heineken Cup. All of a sudden, this is looking like a damn good league.

Munster are three points off joint leaders The Ospreys and Leinster, with another Heineken table-topper in Edinburgh for company late tomorrow night.

Of course, Corkman Michael Bradley, Edinburgh's coach, will relish the opportunity to come home and show the province what they have been missing. That is not likely to happen.

The reality is that Edinburgh are languishing third from bottom of the league with an unimpressive return of three wins from eight rounds, while Munster hold the reverse record -- five wins from eight.

The impact of Australian signing Will Chambers against Castres must have heartened coach Tony McGahan. He may have finally found his man at outside centre.
