Munster's victory over Toulouse to become Champions of Europe for the second time confirmed their position in the pantheon of truly great sides. Only three others have won it twice. How they made history was phenomenal. They did it the hard way in the process demonstrating all the virtues that make them unique; real team spirit, true grit, a never say die attitude and skills of the highest class. They had been grouped alongside London Wasps, Clermont Auvergne and Llanelli Scarlets in the so called 'Pool of Death'. They were down and out until a late bonus point in France made all the difference.
