Munster – Champions Of Europe 2008 – Collector’s Edition
Munster’s victory over Toulouse to become Champions of Europe for the second time confirmed their position in the pantheon of truly great sides. Only three others have won it twice.
How they made history was phenomenal. They did it the hard way in the process demonstrating all the virtues that make them unique – real team spirit, true grit, a never-say-die attitude with skills of the highest class.
They had been grouped alongside London Wasps, Clermont Auvergne and Llanelli Scarlets in the so called ‘Pool of Death.’ They were down and out until a late bonus point in France made all the difference.
In the knock-out stages they had to win at Gloucester, Saracens and in Cardiff against the triple Heineken Cup champions, Toulouse. They did so, to seal their triumph which everyone associated with the province says is so much sweeter second time around.
They are a side of old fashioned values, who believe in respect and tradition. They are of the people from the people and represent everything that is good about rugby and sport.
This special official commemorative DVD follows their incredible journey from the start of the campaign through to the thrilling climax. It has all the highlights from the key games, exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage including the incredible celebrations in Limerick as the fans welcomed home their heroes.
