Glasgow surprises Munster and joins the Bulls in the United Rugby Championship final

Bad day for Irish rugby. After Leinster’s setback earlier this Saturday against the South African Bulls (25-20), it was Munster who fell on Saturday evening at home against the Glasgow Warriors (10-17) in the second semi-final of United Rugby Championship (formerly Celtic League). Munster finished 1st in the regular season with a record of 13 wins, 1 draw and 4 defeats in 18 days.

Glasgow therefore joins the Blue Bulls and will travel to Pretoria for the Championship final on June 22. This will be the third consecutive year that the URC final, previously played only by the Irish, Welsh and Scottish teams (to which the Italian teams have been added since 2010 and the South African teams since 2017), will be played in South Africa. And it will be the first final for a Scottish team since 2019 and the presence of Glasgow (already) against Leinster.

Antoine Frisch was not enough

French center Antoine Frisch scored the only try for Munster, who were aiming for a second consecutive final after beating the Stormers in Cape Town last year. But it was not enough, Glasgow showing a lot of heart in defense and managing to score two tries on their attacking balls, including one from Sebastian Cancelliere on a lightning attack, after a breakthrough from the spinning international center Huw Jones.
