Ulstermen "devastate" Munster

Magner's League interjection:

Ulster became the first Irish team to beat Munster at Thomond Park since Leinster did so in December 1995, as they humbled the Heineken Cup champions with a devastating five-try, 37-11 victory.

Terrific game. I was expecting a home-side walkover, but the Ulstermen came to play and truly silenced the new Thomond Park. Loads of biff, and dreadful sights for the locals with Ronan O'Gara and Rua Tipoki going off injured early. Even worse night for out-of-puff referee Alan Lewis, who repeatedly missed forward passes, including a first-half howler that led to Ulster's first try.
