LEINSTER EDGE OUT MUNSTER AT THE AVIVA



Leinster and Munster squared up to each other at a packed Aviva Stadium in the Pro 12 League, formally known as the Magners League this evening.

Of course it was going to be an unusual game after the exertions of the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, however the traditional rivalries of Ireland's most successful provinces ensured that it was a full-blooded encounter.

It was a kicking game with both Ronan O'Gara and Jonny Sexton taking the three point option after every infringement.
Indeed, both players were in fine shooting form with the boot, Jonathon Sexton scored seven from seven while O'Gara scored with four penalties and a conversion from a penalty-try in the second-half as Munster were chasing the game.

In the end a fiercely faught encounter between Leinster & Munster has helped to dust away the cobwebs of an unfulfilled World Cup & will prepare both Provinces for the Heineken Cup, which starts again next weekend.

Final Score: Leinster 24-19 Munster
