‘Gaillimh’ gives his view on a spirited Munster victory

ALMOST 20 years since Munster first made the breakthrough to European Cup qualifying rounds, rugby legend Mick Galwey was smiling with satisfaction as he made his way out of Thomond Park this afternoon.
The former international, who captained Munster when they reached the quarter final of the competition for the first time in 1998, had high praise for the commitment, courage and self-belief of the players.
“It reminded me of the last minute stuff when we beat Saracens here in 2000. When you are down six points there is only one thing for it, you have to score the try and it was phenomenal. What an effort from everybody in the side, particularly the younger players like Sam Arnold, Jack O’Donoghue, Alex Wooton I thought they were magnificent today.
“The grand slam guys, Conor Murray, Peter O’Mahony and CJ Standard, they just took off from where they left off with Ireland in the Six Nations and that is a great sign of a player. Winning high profile games like this is a Munster thing, it is what we do best, it is what we know. It’s great to see these young guys carrying on the Munster tradition. We had a bit of luck at times today, but if you don’t have luck, you have nothing.”
