London Wasps 24 -23 Munster
In a gripping game Munster were edged out by defending champions London Wasps. Rua Tipoki’s converted try gave Munster an early lead with Shaun Payne’s try further extending Munster’s lead to 20-13 at half time. The wasps were clearly stung and came out in the second half with intent to ruin any early celebrations.
