Munster, Leinster through to Heineken Croker Showdown

The Irish rugby success story of 2009 has continued with two of the country’s province teams winning through to a mouth-watering semi-final showdown in the Heineken Cup. Munster made light work of the Ospreys, winning through on a 43-9 scoreline from the impressive home surroundings of the refurbished Thomond Park (ahh, we can but dream of finished stadia like that up North…) whilst Leinster made hard work in defeating Harlequins 6-5 in a low scoring contest. The semi-final will take place during the first weekend in May. The romantics may want this one for O’Driscoll and Leinster, but it’s hard to look past Munster on current form.
