The dream for this year is over after Munster suffered a heavy defeat to Llanelli Scarlets in the Heineken Cup. The final scoreline of 24-15 doesn’t adequately reflect the gulf between the two teams – 12 of Munster’s 15 points came in the last 13 minutes. Munster just weren’t good enough, and they were completely outclassed by the Scarlets.
We were penned back in our own half for much of the game, and the scoreline of 17-0 at half time was just too much to claw back. The second half did see an improvement, but it was too little, too late.
Congratulations to Llanelli, well done and best of luck in the Semi’s, and to Munster, there’s always next year.
