Top Performers & Post-Match Stats From Munster’s Dramatic Win Over Edinburgh

Irish Teams Champions Cup

Munster secured a third successive Heineken Champions Cup semi-final thanks to their incredibly hard fought 13-17 victory over Edinburgh at Murrayfield. 

Johann van Graan’s side were under the pump for the majority of the match but they emerged victorious thanks to two tries from Keith Earls and an overall superb defensive effort.

At the time of writing, it looks like Munster will face a trip to the Ricoh Arena to take on Saracens in the semi-final.

Here, we take a look at some of the official stats from Munster’s win.
