Outstanding Munster Through To The B&I Final.

Munster are through to the final of the B&I Cup to be played in a home venue thanks to a fabulous 36-29 win at the RDS.

Three Deasy penalties had Munster leading 9-6 at the break in front of a near 5000 spectators.

And it seemed the home side were set fair for the final when tries from Luke McGrath and Dominic Ryan had them leading 20-9.

But Munster struck back with a brace from Luke O'Dea and one for Barry O'Mahony to regain the lead

Deasy missed an added time penalty but then landed his seventh successful kick in extra time before adding the conversion to Dave Kilcoyne's try to seal the outcome.
