It turned out to be another disappointing derby result for Johann Van Graan and Munster last night after blowing a 17-0 half time lead against Ulster at the Kingspan in the Guinness Pro 14.
Things were looking good for van Graan and his side until the home side recorded their first score of the game nearly an hour in when Darren Cave got over following some pressure on their opponents 22 and things went downhill from then on after former Ulster player Sam Arnold was shown a red card for a big hit on Christian Lealiifano in the build up to the score (below).

A number of internationals like Dave Kilcoyne, Conor Murray and CJ Stander weren’t involved for the new years day clash, but they were watching on as their team mates struggled to contain the home side for the final quarter.
Stander was seen anxious and disappointed in his wife’s Instagram story last night during the game like so many supporters would have been and still are today.
