One Point Required For B&I Cup Semi

8th March 2010 By Munster Rugby

Following Bristol’s 21-16 victory over Nottingham yesterday, Munster require just one point from next Friday’s Musgrave Park clash with Heriots to advance to the semi-final of the British & Irish Cup.

Following Bristol’s 21-16 victory over Nottingham yesterday, Munster require just one point from next Friday’s Musgrave Park clash with Heriots to advance to the semi-final of the British & Irish Cup.

That win leaves Bristol top of the table, one point ahead of Munster. In the event that both sides end up with the same points (18), Munster will advance to the semi-final by virtue of their win over Bristol when the sides met in Nenagh RFC.

Already through to the semi-finals are Doncaster Knights and Cornish Pirates who ended Leinster’s hopes when they defeated Newport 26-20 in Camborne yesterday.

The final place in the semis will go to either London Welsh or Ulster Ravens. Welsh have completed their programme and are on 20 points, four ahead of Ulster. The Ravens are home to Aberavon in their final game where a win will see them go through.

The British & Irish Cup semi final draw will be made on Wednesday, March 24th. The 1st and 3rd teams drawn will receive home advantage in the semi finals that will be played on the weekend of April 24th.
