IT'S back to the Guinness PRO12 for us tonight with a game against the leaders Munster in Cork, and one that got away shows that we can cause an upset.

The game against them in Newport was a frustrating one and a big missed opportunity, just like Glasgow a couple of weeks after it.

Most games are close these days and we were patient on that day, staying in it right until the end when we had the chance to get the win from a driving lineout. It was a big chance to make a bit of a statement but we didn't execute.

However, we know that Munster are a different beast on their own turf and our struggles away from Rodney Parade have been well documented.

Of course they will be without plenty of players who are taking on Italy with Ireland but, as we found out at Leinster in December, so called 'second string' sides can be dangerous.

I am under no illusions that sometimes a superstar player would find it hard to get motivated by playing us whereas somebody trying to stake a claim for the jersey has no shortage of determination and incentive.

Munster made it 12 wins from 13 without their internationals at Edinburgh last weekend but we have a game plan and can cause an upset if we execute it.

We go to Cork without Ed Jackson, who has had surgery on a shoulder injury, and I guess that will present chances over the next few weeks for other players.

I can play number eight while Harrison Keddie has developed this season, showing just how much potential he has when scoring two tries to get us the bonus point win against Enisei-STM, while Robson Blake came in for the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

After making his debut off the bench in Leicester last autumn he did the same against Newcastle and Gloucester and there's no doubt he is a real diamond in the rough.

Robson will join us full-time next year and with a good pre-season and more minutes of top-flight rugby he could be devastating.

I can tell you that nobody likes to train against him because he is a pain to tackle – he could almost be our version of Louis Picamoles and I'd take that all day long.

With a bit of polishing Robson can be a real threat for us, he is raw but just loves to carry.

Ed has done a really good job for us this season but at times we have missed an out-and-out ball carrier, so Robson is a guy that in certain conditions could be devastating and get us over the gain line.

Wearing my Newport RFC coaching hat, I see a lot of talented players in the Premiership and I guess that after not going down the academy route Robson will have lots of learning to do.

It's not just about being in the gym and working on your passing, it's exposure to training like a professional.

Things won't come overnight but he's a good kid and is open-minded, so hopefully he can progress and be another attacking weapon for us.
