Yellow for ROG, Wally’s late try and hurt; the last time Munster played Toulon

The province’s defeat to the Philippe Saint-André’s men meant they failed to reach the knock-out stages of the Heineken Cup.


TRIES BY PAUL Sackey and Christian Loamanu, as well as 22 points from the boot of Jonny Wilkinson, helped Toulon to a 32-16 win at Stade Mayol the last time the Top 14 outfit met Munster.

Defeat meant Tony McGahan’s side failed to reach the knock-out stages of the Heineken Cup for the first time in 13 seasons, although earlier pool stage losses to London Irish and the Ospreys were equally as costly.

Yellow cards for Ronan O’Gara and Donncha O’Callaghan stymied any Munster fightback, although David Wallace did cross for a late consolation try. In truth, the Irish province were well beaten by Philippe Saint-André’s side, which included George Smith, Joe van Niekerk and Felipe Contepomi.
