Leinster 35 Münster 25

Breathtaking, and to say the least, the physically punishing game that waned from start to finish ended with Leinster getting more than he needed and Münster failing to reach his goal. rice field. Well, to some extent.

Münster will play in the final match and will need at least two match points for the home semi-final and bonus points for additional carrots that may be in the home semi-final.

In the end, they came up with zero. This was probably a good thing in that he won the quarterfinals against Ulster instead of the Bulls. Still, the two-week Irish Derby winner will be absent in the semi-finals against Stormers or Edinburgh.
