In another world, Jack Crowley’s first taste of the cauldron that is Stade Pierre Fabre would have been two weeks ago, and not tonight, when he is set to lead Munster in one of Europe’s toughest away venues.

As Ihaia West suffered another bad case of the yips by missing two last-gasp penalties a fortnight ago, our mind immediately wandered towards Ronan O’Gara’s failed attempts to sign Crowley for La Rochelle.
