Glasgow Warriors pulled off a stunning upset by defeating Munster in the United Rugby Championship semifinal, securing their spot in the final against the Bulls. Despite not being the favorites, the Warriors delivered a standout performance to outclass the defending champions.

In the early stages of the match, Munster took the lead with a Jack Crowley penalty. However, Glasgow responded strongly and went into halftime ahead thanks to Kyle Steyn‘s intercept try.

Franco Smith‘s Glasgow side extended their lead with a crucial try from Sebastian Cancelliere, ultimately proving to be the winning score. Although Antoine Frisch scored for Munster, a late red card for Alex Nankivell dashed their hopes of a comeback, allowing Glasgow to secure a well-deserved victory.

The Munster lineup featured players like Mike Haley, Shane Daly, Simon Zebo, Craig Casey, and captain Tadhg Beirne, while Glasgow’s squad included Josh McKay, Huw Jones, George Horne, and Richie Gray among others.

The match was officiated by referee Andrea Piardi, with support from assistant referees Gianluca Gnecchi and Federico Vedovelli, and TMO Matteo Lipirini. Glasgow Warriors’ triumph over Munster marks a significant achievement as they advance to the United Rugby Championship final.
