27 April 2008
Munster will play Toulouse in the final of the Heineken Cup after Ronan O'Gara kicked a late penalty to secure a tense 18-16 win over Saracens. Glen Jackson landed three second-half penalties to keep the London club in contention but, O'Gara sent over the crucial score to send them to the final in Cardiff.Munster led 15-7 at half-time thanks to first-half tries from the outstanding O'Gara and flanker Alan Quinlan.

But Munster were pushed all the way with wing Kamile Ratuvou crossing for Saracens in a fine first-half.

And despite Glen Jackson Jackson's kicking heroics, it was O'Gara who had the last word to send Munster to the final.
