    Heineken Cup Final

    Biarritz Olympique vs Munster at Millennium Stadium, Cardiff
    Referee: Chris White (England)
    Touch judges: Dave Pearson, Tony Spreadbury (both England)
    Television match official: Geoff Warren (England)


    I'm supprised by the lack of threads also.

    Here's to get the ball running...


    That should get somone talking.

    I want Munster to win alright but genuinely believe that Leinster had the better chance of the 2 of beating Biarritz and I still think that's the case, but hopefully Munster can cause another upset to add to their list of many.

    Big news with Horan and O'Connell both being passed fit although I'm sure POC would have gone on the pitch if he was only half fit.

    Should be a titanic clash up front but Biarritz have the backs to win it out wide-if they choose to use them.

    Good start from the touch judge, twice in touch from Bobo yet he gets away with it. Munster are destined to not win this thing.

    Oh man that was awesome, finally getting an awful slice of luck and it not costing them the game, justice done, thoroughly deserved winners.

    Great game!!

    The atmosphere was better than any game of rugby i can remember.

    That final puts the Super 14 to shame.

    Next saturday the Super 14 final will be played in NZ infront of 30,000 ferals in wet and windy conditions in a **** poor stadium with no atmosphere............. no wonder SH players go north.

    Well done Munster :bravo:

    Fair play. Admire your honesty.

    I keep reading that Peter Stringer was MOTM though, that can't be right surely? It implies he did something useful...;)

    Well done Munster, the fans deserve it more than any others I know.

    Well played Munster you deserved it

    Stringer and O'connell stand outs

    The truth what a typical comment from an aussie whos teams aren't good enough for the super 14 final :bleh!:
    Watch and learn next saturday how to play proper southern hemisphere rugby

    This is what will stomp all over you in the tri nations once again this year :cheers:

    You seem like a really bad loser as the crusaders and canes deserve to be there on merit

    What does any of that dribble have to do with the fact that next weeks Super14 final will suck balls as a "spectacle"

    falcons fan your an arsewipe, what the truth is saying is the truth, in case you havent noticed hes a force fan, and had no real hopes of them making the final this year. why would he be slating his own domestic comp if it wasnt the truth.

    Yeah, I have to agree with you on that... The Heinaken cup final absolutely KILLLS the Super 12/14 final in terms of being a spectacle. Mostly because the kiwi's dominate it all the time and all their stadiums are second rate (then when the ACT hosted the final it was at that shitty Camberra stadium), if NSW ever or QLD pull their act together and get to host a final then the atmosphere at Telstra or Suncorp will be unreal, but untill then we'll just have to deal with these uneventful looking matches.

    Great game - Wish it were Leinster obviously, but brilliant to see how much it meant to the lads!
    The shots of O'connell street in Limerick were crazy! Apparently ROG looked up at the big screen before his last kick, along with the other players and was gobsmacked at the sight. Pretty impressive.
    Stringers try was brilliant - very opportunistic, but as he said himself, they had seen in the video analysis of previous Biarritz games that Bobo has a tendency come off the blind side.

    Oh they say that now, it's like Jonny Wilkinson saying something about his kick in the WC.

    Face it, it was a good oppurtunistic play that worked. Be proud of that fact!
