Leinster Lions 8 Munster 15: Champions Begin With

And the champions survived seven minutes of injury-time to hold out for a deserved victory.

Leinster piled on the pressure in the closing minutes after Munster were reduced to 14 players following the sin-binning of prop Simon Kerr.

The home side led 5-3 at the end of a disjointed first half with a try from Brendan Burke.

In a gamed more memorable for defensive organisation than offensive flair, the difference proved to be the accuracy of Staunton’s boot.
