A drop-goal from Jack Crowley in the final minutes of the BKT URC Semi-Final gave Munster a 16-15 win in Aviva , and they now travel to Cape Town in a fortnight to face DHL Stormers in the URC Grand Final.

On front over over 26,000 fans, Leinster suffered an immediate blow, when Will Connors was forced off inside the opening 90 seconds, to be replaced by Josh van der Flier.

A Harry Byrne penalty gave Leinster and early lead, with Munster responding with two penalties from Ben Healy.

Ryan Baird thought he scored the game’s opening try with a run from the halfway line, but the TMO adjudged Tommy O’Brien to have knocked on the ball in the buildup.

Leinster did go into the break with the lead, as Jason Jenkins touched down, minutes before the break. Byrne converted, and Leinster went in leading 10-6 at the break.

Tadhg Beirne crashed over to give Munster the lead early in the second half, as the visitors opened up a three-point lead.

On the hour mark, Joe McCarthy gave Leinster a two-point lead, but Ciarán Frawley’s conversion went just wide.

With two-minutes left Crowley scored the decisive drop-goal, with Leinster unable to get the ball back, as Munster held on to win.
