With the travel expeditions well underway for Munster's Red Army and over four thousand supporters expected to invade Marseille over the weekend, the Munster squad will depart for the South of France tomorrow.
"They've (Munster fans) been criticised in some quarters in recent weeks, wrongly in my opinion, and have responded brilliantly. Their critics forget that over the course of three games recently, in the space of four weeks, nearly 57,000 turned up to support the team and now once again, despite the recessionary times we're living in, they're voting with their feet and their wallets."
Leinster didn't take their full allocation and these were snapped up by Munster supporters one of whom, Paul Reals from Limerick, became the One Millionth Magners League ticket purchaser and earned himself a Hospitality Ticket Package at the final.
