What an occasion... what a result... what a team...
Munster have confirmed themselves as the best team in Europe and they did with patience, guile and guts. As O'Connell said there seems to be something about the Munster setup and the Munster jersey which makes every individual do special things. The whole is so much greater than the sum of it's parts.
Hats off to Kidney who took a winning team in 2006, rebuilt it and won again 2 years on - with a new back 5; a new 8/9 combination; and without Axle Foley.
One of Munster's most admirable qualities is their ability to have true self-belief without ever appearing cocky or arrogant. I think the team is a reflection of their coach - I look forward to a repeat performance for ireland!
