It may be the last domestic game of the season but try telling that to the men of Munster as three of their top players came out and showed just how much the Magners League Final clash with Heineken Cup champions Leinster means to the province.
David Wallace, Tomas O’Leary and Donnacha Ryan were today out and about on the streets of Limerick to promote the clash between the top two provinces in Irish rugby. The game in Thomand Park is more than just another match between these two fierce rivals.
For people who don’t have a ticket for the game which is completely sold out they can follow all the action of what will be a pulsating game on www.sportsnewsireland.com where there will be live updates throughout the game and both pre and post-match reaction from Thomand Park.
Munster will want to end a disappointing season with some silverware and at the same time get another victory over Leinster after their dramatic 24-23 win in Thomand a few weeks ago. The red province will be no doubt fired up for the visit of the new Heineken Cup champions.
For Leinster they will be trying to round off what has been a wonderful campaign with another piece of silverware. The Dubliners hope to follow in the footsteps of Toulouse, Leicester and London Wasps in achieving domestic and European success in the same season. They will also be looking to avenge last year’s defeat to the Ospreys who defeated Leinster in the Grand Final in the RDS twelve months ago.
