Northampton captain Dylan Hartley has tipped fly-half Stephen Myler to be the star of the show during this weekend's Heineken Cup quarter-final clash with Irish giants Munster.
Hartley – who starred as England’s hooker during this year's RBS 6 Nations – has hinted that Myler will be given the nod to start at Thomond Park ahead of Shane Geraghty.
Rugby-league convert Myler has been in superb form for the Saints in the No.10 shirt this season and Hartley insists the 26-year-old can come of age on the Emerald Isle.
“I think Stephen controls the game slightly better than Shane, who can come on and turn a game on its head,” said Hartley.
“But we’ve been to Thomond Park, we know what Munster are about, there’s no fear. We’ve had two heavy games in the fortnight since winning the LV= Cup, we’re on a roll, confident, happy with our form.
“As a player, as a team, what better motivation could you have than a semi-final spot in Europe?”
