The rugby season really cranks up a gear when Munster meet Leinster and so it was in Thomond Park last Saturday night when Munster recorded a 19-15 win.
A Keith Earls try in the 33rd minute was the game’s crucial score and a conversion and four penalties from man of the match Ian Keatley helped Munster to a deserved win. Leinster had four penalties from Ian Madigan and one from Fergus McFadden.
Munster open their Heineken Cup campaign away to Edinburgh next Saturday.
