The 2011-12 British & Irish Cup semi-final draw was made today in London with an all Irish tie drawn between Munster 'A' and Leinster 'A'. Munster will be the away team in the week-end of the 6th, 7th and 8th April (date and venue TBC).
Munster will be hoping to win through to their second British & Irish Cup final, having lost to the Cornish Pirates in the inaugural final in 2010.

Semi-final opponents Leinster A who topped Pool 3 with three wins and a draw will provide stern opposition for Munster 'A'.

In the second semi-final, newcomers Cross Keys have made their first year in the competition a successful one finishing top of Pool 2 just one point ahead of Munster and will face the Cornish Pirates.

The Pirates are the only team in the line-up to have won all four of their pool matches, securing their path to the semi-finals with a win over fellow RFU Championship contenders Nottingham Rugby.
