ARCHIVE: Stringer's ICONIC Heineken Cup final try vs Biarritz

During the prolonged period of lockdown as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic we’ve been looking back at some of the most iconic moments in rugby history.

This time we’re looking at the 2006 Heineken Cup final between Munster and Biarritz at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

The scores were tied 10-10 after half an hour when Munster had an attacking scrum on the Biarritz five-metre line in the right-hand corner of the pitch.

Try-scorer Sireli Bobo had left his wing leaving French international flanker Serge Betsen covering the blindside by himself.

Munster scrum-half Peter Stringer, who wasn’t known as a running half back, noticed Betsen wasn’t paying attention to the space outside him and took his chance.

The Irishman disguised his pass and ran into the open space down the blindside to score a try completely unopposed by the Biarritz defence.

Munster went on to win the game 19-23 and Stringer earned 98 caps for Ireland over an 11-year period.
