ChatGPT generates a virtual URC Final #STOvMUN #Munster4ADay

2nd title in a row or 1st title since 2011?

Big match today to end the season promises to be a classic.

Obvs the Stormers will be favourites on their home patch but anyone who thinks Munster can’t complete what would be an unprecedented 3 away playoff wins on the bounce hasn’t been paying attention.

FWIW I reckon Graham, Peter & co will get ‘er done.
