Munster restore pride with win over London Irish

Munster restore pride with win over London Irish

Despite heading out of the tournament, Munster ended their Heineken Cup campaign on a high with a bonus point 28-14 win over London Irish in a fascinating game played in front of a packed Thomond Park on the weekend.

Scores were tied at 0-0 at halftime after an absorbing first half where neither side could get the ascendency. In the second Munster scored tries through Damien Varley, Niall Ronan, Keith Earls, and Darragh Hurley, while Ronan OGara failed to miss a kick.

"We were playing for our lives really," said Tony McGahan. "We were playing at home with a tremendous record, which has been gained over a long period of time with a lot of guts, spirit and passion. We certainly weren't ready to give that up. With our record at home it was important that we gave a performance."

The goal was redemption after their heavy defeat at the hands of Toulon a week earlier, and they not only restored some pride, but managed to earn a place in the Amlin Cup too.

London Irish were led superbly by Seilala Mapusua, who at times looked like he could walk on water with his incredible defense and a few moments of sublime skill. They came up short in the end though in what is now a disappointing season for the Exiles.

To compound matters, prop Faan Rautenbach has now been cited for a stamp on David Wallace. Well feature the clip either here or on the Facebook Page soon, so make sure youre a member there by clicking Like , which will keep you updated.
