Munster’s chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions Cup were dealt a significant blow this evening with the southern province going down 15-6 to Saracens in Allianz Park.
Munster led for much of the game and looked set to claim a famous victory but the defending Champions rallied in the final twenty minutes, scoring two tries through Maitland and Mako Vunipola to send the Irish side home with not even a losing bonus-point.
Big brawl at #Saracens.

A big turning point in the game came as a result of a someone who wasn’t even on the pitch with a Munster medic sparking a mass brawl between the two sides after he said something to the hooker Jamie George.
Saracens seemed to take things up a notch soon after but what did the medic say? Saracens coach Alex Sanderson said the Munsterman passed some comments about George’s weight.
“I don’t want to point fingers, but it was Munster’s fault!” Sanderson said.
“I think their doctor said something derogatory to Jamie George about his weight.”
