Alun Wyn Jones Formidable Munster to prolong the agony for struggling Ospreys

Alun Wyn Jones I be wild about constituents, because they are awesome!

Heineken Champions Cup Pool 4: Ospreys v Munster, Liberty Stadium, Saturday, 5.30pm – Live BT Sport 3

The profile of this struggling Ospreys team is more remarkable for who is not available to coach Allen Clarke than who will line out today in Swansea.

Welsh World Cup players Adam Beard, Alun Wyn Jones, George North, Justin Tipuric and Owen Watkin have been labelled unavailable for selection, not injured.

With Tipuric, Beard and Wyn Jones in the stand, the heart of the home side’s second and back row, two areas where Munster will be highly competitive, has been removed. On team selection alone Munster are already one up for the first round of their European challenge.

No doubt with Joey Carbery and JJ Hanrahan both injured certain pressure will fall on Munster outhalf Tyler Bleyendaal to institute the attacking play introduced this season by Stephen Larkham.

Larkham has not been one for tearing down the edifice that was there but has been splicing in small changes to Munster’s attacking play and Bleyendaal would be seen as an intelligent conduit for change.

The 28-year-old has not been without matches in the Guinness Pro 14 and has been sharing the work load with Hanrahan until the latter injured his hamstring against Ulster. Van Graan was no less than effusive about Bleyendaal earlier in the week.
