FRIDAY QUIZ: Can you name the Munster squad that defeated Leinster in the Heineken Cup semi-final in 2006

Munster take on Leinster in the first round of the Rainbow Cup on Saturday evening at the RDS.

On 23 April 2006, Munster traveled to Landsdown Road to face neighbours Leinster in what promised to be a titanic Heineken Cup semi-final.

After two final losses in the previous six years, Munster were favoured for a win against an upcoming Leinster side who had also failed to triumph in the competition up to that point.

With the crowd at feverpitch in a sun soaked Dublin, Munster produced an exquisite performance to advance to a third ever final, winning out 30-6 against the hosts.
