Castres Fans Not Happy
15th November 2011 By Munster Rugby
The plan to switch the Castres/Munster game to Toulouse doesn’t appear to have entirely found favour with the French club’s supporters.
According to reports only 10,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday's game at the 18,000+ capacity Stade Ernest-Wallon with Castres supporters seemingly unwilling to support the initiative for a game their side must win if they're to retain any hope of progress from this ultra competitive group.
Meanwhile, Northampton continue to be perplexed by their defeat in Limerick last weekend, “We can't actually figure out how we've lost the game.” said scrum-half Lee Dickson. “Everyone's run themselves into the ground. We've defended well, we've done everything right and I think we were the better team.”
“We played all the rugby. We deserved to win. We know that we're a really good team.” But if Dickson isn't quite sure how they lost, his coach Jim Mallinder is, “We will look at ourselves but I think the game did hinge on some crucial refereeing decisions.”
“I think he (Nigel Owens) just got quite a lot wrong, it's as simple as that. Sometimes you don't always get the rub of the green and I think we'll look back and say we didn't quite get it.”
