Peter Stringer takes a Mike Blair boot to the face

European champions Munster got their Magners League campaign off to a good start on Friday night with a 20-15 win over Edinburgh at Murrayfield.

A solid kicking display by former Gloucester player Chris Paterson meant the final five minutes were nervy for the visitors, but through some solid defence and loads of experience, they held on for the win.

Substitute scrum half Peter Stringer unfortunately caught a stray boot with less than a minute in the match remaining.

Last season we saw a fairly similar incident, with Stringer that time catching his own teamate, Federico Pucciariello, in the face.

This time it was Edinburgh and Scotland scrum half Mike Blair who simply stepped over the ruck, probably trying to get his foot on the ball, but caught Stringer in the face.

It looked pretty bad, as a boot full of studs to the face isn't pretty, but I'd say it was simply clumsy and a bit of a freakish accident.
