Munster’s classic with the All Blacks from 2008 to be shown on RTE tonight

RTÉ are set to show Munster’s classic game against the All Blacks in 2008 at 11:25 pm tonight.

The game which celebrated the official opening of the new and improved Thomond Park finished in heartbreak for Munster as Joe Rokocoko ran home a late try to secure a two-point victory for the visitors.

Munster were missing 10 key players for the clash but a try from Barry Murphy and 11 points from the boot of Paul Warwick saw Tony McGahan’s men lead 16-10 at half-time.

Rokocoko’s try in the 76th minute prevented a Munster miracle, 30 years after they became the first Irish team to beat New Zealand.
