In Pics: Edinburgh 17 Munster 18

Click here for photos from Munster’s top-of-the-table Celtic League clash with Edinburgh last Saturday, which they won by a whisker.

Pictured above: Irish international Paul O’Connell beats Ally Hogg to a lineout at Murrayfield. O’Connell, who was making just his second appearance for Munster since sustaining a hand injury in September, has fond memories of the home of Scottish rugby – he captained Ireland to victory against Scotland, in the absence of the injured Brian O’Driscoll, at Murrayfield last year, scoring a try in the process.
