London Irish thrilled with historic win over Munster

London Irish thrilled with historic win over Munster

Earlier in the week we saw the dangerous tackle by Munsters Sam Tuitupou against London Irish, a tackle that has earned him a meeting with the citing commissioner on Wednesday. Some asked for highlights from the match, so here they are now.

Munster picked up a last gasp losing bonus point but it wasnt enough to overshadow a famous win for London Irish in the Heineken Cup. The 23-17 win came in large part thanks to an intercept try by flyer Topsy Ojo, some solid kicking and a dropgoal by Ryan Lamb, and a 50m penalty kick from Delon Armitage.

"I'm thrilled, absolutely delighted. The losing bonus point might turn out to be relevant down the line, but I do not want that issue to cloud what was a memorable night for this club," said the jubilant London Irish coach afterwards, Toby Booth.

"This was a massive occasion and a massive effort. We played with our heads and our hearts tonight, something that we don't always do."

Munster captain Denis Leamy was naturally dissatisfied with the result. "We came here to win and we didnt do that, and thats a hugely disappointing thing. Yeah, we got a bonus point but were disappointed with the result," he said.

"As ever, we dug really deep out of a massive hole we created for ourselves, and we got a bonus point. Its a positive thing but look, its four points lost really, so it is disappointing. We obviously gave away an intercept try it was unfortunate but these things happen.," he added.

Ronan OGara, who put in a delicate kick to set up Tuitupou for the try, looked at the positives. "The great thing about Munster is that we fight to the end and we showed that again. People can say what they like about us being an ageing force but we're as ambitious as ever," he said.
