The conversion is good from Horne.


Glasgow try

What a try! Started by Tom Jordan, he moves it to Darge who finds Huw Jones on his shoulder, then the break is like a knife through butter. He makes 30 metres, beats his last man and sends Cancelliere in on his shoulder who has the speed to beat the remaining defenders.

What a try!


Penalty wide

The kick is hooked across the face of the post. The score remains 7-3 to Glasgow.


Glasgow penalty

Patiently working through those phases, making yards, has paid off. Just outside Munster’s 22. This time George Horne opts for the posts.


Glasgow possession

Cancelliere gathers another box kick. He’s playing so well round fringes tonight and from their Jack Dempsey sets the forwards off through the phases.

They move coast-to-coast and back.


Glasgow scrum

Glasgow’s defensive line stands firm once again. This time Sebastian Cancelliere pulls a loose ball out of the air and straightens up. He’s then bundled into touch, but not before a knock on from Munster is called back.

Horne converts

A simple kick between the sticks. Gray’s back on and we hold the lead.


Glasgow try

Something from nothing. Munster slowly working through the phases and then a loose pass is gathered by captain Steyn, who has 40 metres clear to run in the first score.

He wins the foot race and touches down under the posts!


Matt Fagerson with an excellent jackal to rip the ball from the ruck and win the ball back for Glasgow.


Munster have the ball in Glasgow’s 22, working through the phases. Battering the defensive line. Glasgow hold strong so far, and Zander Fagerson emerges from the ruck with the referee handing the Warriors a penalty.

Tom Jordan will send this up field to ease the pressure, with just 50 seconds left on Gray’s sin bin.



The ball has changed hands on numerous occasions the last few minutes. Neither team playing particularly cleanly.


Glasgow ball

Josh McKay gathers a Munster box kick and makes yards. They then have a few phases, marching closer to Munster’s 22, but are finally, put in touch.

The Munster line out, isn’t straight though and it’s a Glasgow scrum.


Crowley scores

The first points go to Munster, a kick from in front of the posts.


Munster penalty

Munster absolutely battering Glasgow’s try line, but they have breached it yet. They win another penalty for offside. This time, for repetitive infringements, Richie Gray goes to the sin bin.


Munster line out

It’s a safe line out option this time, and Munster set up the ruck. Glasgow have managed to push their opponent’s back out of their 22. But, the whistle goes again, back for another penalty, Crowley goes to the five metre line.

And, the host’s reset!


Munster penalty

Glasgow win the line out, but the whistle goes again. With a second look, Richie Gray has pulled on Peter O’Mahony’s arm, handing Munster another opportunity to kick into Glasgow’s 22.


Munster penalty

Glasgow keep applying the pressure in Munster’s half. They aren’t letting them out, dominating the rucks, but the referee deems their play on the floor isn’t to standard and blows for another Munster penalty.

Crowley kicks to the half way.


Three phases later and Sione Tuipulotu powers to within inches of the Munster try line!

Unfortunately, the referee blows up for a Munster penalty.


Counter attack

Sebastian Cancelliere picks up a loose pass from Munster’s forwards, he has a half break, that he manages to send on to Huw Jones, Jones slots a low lying kick through to buy some territory.

Glasgow then win the subsequent line out and there’s a break from Jonny Matthews.


Munster penalty

Jack Crowley has the first chance for points, but his 30 metre attempt, goes wide.


Covering defence

Shane Daly looks for a wide looping run, seeing the space opening up, but the covering tackle from Sebastian Cancelliere was excellently executed!


Munster scrum

Richie Gray gathers the kick and Tom Jordan moves it to set up the next phase.


Munster kick off

It’s time, here we go. 2023 semi-final! Jack Crowley commences proceedings!


Last time out

A reminder this is the 2022/23 league champions that we’re playing. Munster also had the upper hand last time we met, back in December. That was a 40-29 win to the Irish side at Musgrave Park.

But, Glasgow come off one of their best display’s of the season, beating DHL Stormers in last weekend’s quarter-final, 27-10.


And, Munster’s


A reminder of our team
