Munster took a huge step towards a European cup quarter-final today after a 25-16 win away in Leicester. In a game that was incredibly intense, Munster kept their nerve to secure their first win at Welford Road since 2006.
In-game interviews are often boring. The person being interviewed is occupied with the game and rarely divulges anything of interest. Generally, it's a series of banalities and cliches that fill some out-of-play time.
Today was different. First up was Jerry Flannery, who delivered a fascinating breakdown of how Munster conceded their try while also justifying their approach to kicking the ball:
In the second half, Geordan Murphy took the mic. Murphy delivered a questionable critique of the referee after they conceded 11 penalties in the first half alone. Nevertheless, it was an intriguing interview that stimulated a lot of debate:
BT Sport to Geordan Murphy: How upset are you that the referee is a big meanie?
Geordan Murphy: In the premiership the refs give out milk and cookies at half time, this guy didn’t even have orange slices #LEIvMUN

Geordan Murphy blaming the ref is pretty poor #LEIvMUN

On behalf of every viewer who has listened to meaningless monologues about 'fronting up' and 'playing in the right areas', more of this.
