Munster message marching through Limerick

Munster geared up for Saturday’s Magners League Grand Final by reminding their faithful Red Army of just exactly how much Saturday’s showdown with Leinster means to the province.

The League’s showpiece event is already a 26,100 sell out but that didn’t stop David Wallace, Tomas O’Leary and Donnacha Ryan from promoting the all Irish affair in the streets of Limerick.

The trio were on hand to tell fans who have missed out on tickets that magnersleague.com, the official website of the Magners League, is the best place to follow the action before, during and after the game.

And having topped the Magners League standings by a massive 13 points and beaten reigning champions the Ospreys on their way to the final, Munster will be desperate to finish the season with silverware.

But their task will be far from straightforward as they take on a Leinster side who have won five of the last six meeting between the two teams.

And it is Leinster who will arrive in Limerick looking to record a unique double after being crowned kings of the continent last weekend.

Leinster hope to follow in the footsteps of Toulouse, Leicester and London Wasps in achieving domestic and European success in the same season.

No side has yet tasted Magners League and Heineken Cup glory in the same campaign and to complete the double on Munster soil would surely make their success even sweeter.
