Gutted after Gutsy Performance falls short: Leinster: 16 – Munster: 15

Gutted after Gutsy Performance falls short: Leinster: 16 – Munster: 15

The “what-ifs” and “if-onlys” will hurt as the season came to a dramatic but ultimately disappointing end in the RDS at the semi-final stage.  The narrowest of margins in the end and credit to the team for their guts and never say die attitude as they almost found a fairytale ending in the closing minutes.  […]

The Long Zee-bye: Munster: 20 – Edinburgh: 16

After his final game in Cork, onto his final European home game and now the final Thomond Park game for Simon Zebo, thankfully it was not yet time for goodbye as Munster are through to the semi in Dublin in 2 weeks.  On a sunny bank holiday weekend, some supporters had other plans including Ed […]

Regrets, we have a few: Racing 92: 27 – Munster: 22

A poor start; inaccurate execution at key moments; the inability to convert pressure, territory and possession into points; a missed opportunity to make history.  Yes we have a few regrets but I am also proud of the team for getting to the last four for the second year in a row.  They fought till the bitter end and […]

The Right Attitude at Altitude: Cheetahs: 17 – Munster: 19

  A game of two halves but when you expected the effects of playing at altitude to impact the visitors and the Cheetahs to pull away as they have done so often this season it was Munster who dug deep.  Their second half performance was pure doggedness, wearing down the opposition, playing for territory, kicking […]

Home comforts in George: Southern Kings: 22 – Munster: 39

Home comforts in George: Southern Kings: 22 – Munster: 39

Moving the game to Outeniqua Park, George from Port Elizabeth may have disrupted travel plans for supporters and the team alike but what an occasion it made of the game for our own CJ Stander, back in his hometown, leading out his team with a 6 nations medal, a Lions tour and numerous man of […]

Warriors: Munster: 20 – RC Toulon: 19

Warriors one and all, the Munster team wore the Irish Heart Foundation logo on their jerseys and showed us how big their hearts were as they faced up to the star-studded team of three-time champions Toulon.  Tackling themselves into the ground, they repelled everything Toulon threw at them from the first minute when Zebo and […]
