E rikarika ana te kapa Opango Māori mo tā rātou tukinga hei te Rāmere ki te kapa Munster, ki Thomond. No te hunga pāpāho te whiwhi i uiuitia te kaiako poumua a Carl Hoeft raua ko te paehau nei a James Lowe mō te tākaro ki a Munster.
Kua tau pai te kapa Opango Māori ki Limerick, Airini tōmua i te tākaro ki a Munster me te whakaaro nui ki a hanga orite te tākaro ki te wikitoriatanga e rima tekau mā whā ki te whitu ki te taiwhnga toyota, ki Chicago.
Hei tā te Kaiako Poumua a Carl Hoeft, “I think we really got a good platform there for the backs and our scrum and lineout operated extremely well and with the short preparations I was pretty happy how it went.”
Heoi hei tā te kaiako poumua nei, he wahanga tākaro hei whakatikatika mō te pakanga e kainamu mai nei.
“Munster are a great side and they have got a very good set piece, so we will be trying to combat that as much we can with a couple of little plans we have got install.”
No te kapa Munster te maringanui ka hoki atu te toa o mua a Rua Tipoki ki te mātaki i te tākaro. Engari hei tā Lowe, ko rātou tonu ka eke.
Hei tā tētahi paehau o te tima a James Lowe, “Hopefully we can bring that expansive play that we tried to bring against the USA and hopefully the conditions play up to what we like but Munster are a whole new beast.”
Ka hoki mahara a James Lowe ki te wā i haka atu a Doug Howett ki te kapa Opango, tokotoru anō ana hoa kaihaka, ko Tipoki tētahi o rātou.
“It's still fondly in my memory so it's a an exciting prospect.”
