Biarritz knock Munster out to join Toulouse in all-French final

Latest update : 2010-05-03

Biarritz defeated Ireland’s Munster Sunday 18-7 to join Toulouse in the European Cup final. The all-French match is set for 22 May in Paris’s Stade de France.

REUTERS - The willpower of Imanol Harinordoquy, who played with a spectacular face mask, inspired Biarritz to an 18-7 win over Munster in San Sebastian on Sunday and set up an all-French Heineken Cup final against Toulouse.

Biarritz won through six penalties from scrumhalf Dimitri Yachvili, who was named man of the match.

Munster scored the only try of a game crippled by handling errors and poor field kicking but the conversion was the only contribution of their goalkicker Ronan O’Gara.

The final to be played at the Stade de France on May 22 will complete a dominant year for the French in European rugby after their national team clinched a grand slam in the Six Nations.
