Welshman Nigel Owens was the man in charge last night as Munster returned to competitive action in Thomond Park with a win over Edinburgh.
The southern province left it late for the second week running with captain CJ Stander scoring a try in the final minutes, converted by Ben Healy, as they secured a dramatic 25-23 win.
Owens as per usual did an excellent job officiating, allowing both sides to play a bit of rugby, while at the same time putting his foot down at the breakdown and marshalling the tackle area superbly.
He did, however, make a massive mistake last night but it didn’t occur in the game – rather on the way home.
Owens drove from Limerick to Cork after the game, presumably to catch a flight back to Wales from Cork Airport but managed to miss a turnoff and ended up just outside Tralee in County Kerry.
Writing on Twitter, Owens said:
“Should have [done] geography in school.
“Must have missed the turning for Cork on way back from the match in Limerick. I was not far from Tralee before I noticed.

We feel you, Nigel. There’s nothing worse. Hope you got to your destination in the end!
