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.  1,923 more words

Double J-light! Munster: 39 - Cardiff Blues: 16

Playing a high tempo game including more of the offloads and pop passes which have been a feature in the early season combined with excellent scrummaging provided the bedrock of this performance by a strong Munster team as the internationals return to the fold. 2,048 more words
