Do you see the last bit?
The bit that says “NIL”?
That means Leinster didn’t manage to score a single point against Munster yesterday, despite having home advantage.
Not one solitary blip to take the bare look off the scoreline.
Not a sausage!
Now, far be it from me to crow, or to gloat or anything like that. Far indeed be it from me to grind their faces in the dirt, just because Lainster failed to score at all, and had to endure a masterclass in creative rugby from the reigning European Champions.
Let me just pause for a minute here while I recover my composure and stop laughing. Maybe I’ll just go for a walk and say hello to all the other chuckling people I might bump into.
Howya. Did you see the — ?
Yep. Good, wasn’t it?
Yeah. Give ’em nothin’!
So there you have it. I’ll just report the result exactly as it happened.
Two penalties and a conversion from O Gara, a try from Melck and another from Howlett amounted to 18 points for Munster.
Unfortunately, no Leinster player managed to score anything at all, and therefore, sadly, their score remained resolutely at NIL.
That means the final score was 18 – NIL in favour of Munster, who won the game, and also denied Leinster a bonus point.
Now. You see? I managed to get through all of that without gloating.
Isn’t it good?
