Munster take their second European title: Sat. was Heineken Cup final day, with Munster looking for their second title, while Toulouse were hunting for their fourth European Cup. Some called billed it the beast against the beauty but while this game was only occasionally beautiful it was a totally gripping game.
In recent seasons Munster have signed more international players and while these imports didn't manage to score they certainly came close and created some lovely plays. This was a hugely emotional game due to a number of reasons; the main one being that it was Declan Kidney's last game in charge as he is moving to take over the running of Ireland's national side. Leaving the question of where do Munster go from here for another to answer.

40 games down: With the pool stages of the RWC over it is time for the remaining 8 nations to look ahead. For some of thos going home there are high points to reflect upon; for others the hatchets are waiting.
Sportsmanship hasn't gone away.: Last month the Carling Cup match between Leicester City and Nottingham Forest was abandoned after Clive Clarke suffered a heart attack. At the time Forest were leading, so, in a sporting gesture Leicester allowed Forest a "free goal" at the start of the rematch.
