Munster team heroic in defeat at Thomand Park

After a nail biting and heroic performance, Thomond Park was electric tonight as Munster were leading 16-13 with 5 minutes to go only to have their hearts and the hearts of the fans crushed by a late winning try from New Zealands Joe Rokocko. The chance of history repeating itself, stolen in the dying minutes.

An incredible night at the home of rugby. Some photos from the historic night and a historic match below.Video uploaded shortly.
