Magnificent Munster become the first Irish rugby team to beat New Zealand.

12,000 packed into Thomond Park in Limerick to see the All Blacks open the Irish leg of their tour against Munster. The crowd roared the home province on to an historic victory. The Munster scores came from a Christy Cantillon try which was converted by Tony Ward who later added two drop goals. The result was all the more remarkable as the All Blacks were held scoreless.    

The final score was Munster 12 New Zealand 0.
