Munster defeated Australia15-6 at Thomond Park in Limerick yesterday to claim another famous win.
Ironically, Munster have an Aussie to thank for their victory.
Former Australian sevens captain Paul Warwick scored three penalties and a drop goal for the home team in terrible conditions.
Australia played their second string side but were never really a threat to a Munster side that was roared on by the crowd of over 21,000.
The score was level 6-6 at half time but Munster dominated the second half and held the Aussies scoreless.
It was Munster’s fourth victory over Australia, after previous wins in 1967, 1981 and 1992.
