Written & Directed by John Breen, this now legendary story is set on 31st October in 1978 when Munster Rugby played the mighty All Blacks in a David v Goliath scenario played out in Thomand Park.  Munster Rugby served up one of the sporting stories of the century when they played like their lives depended on it and beat the All Blacks 12-0.  With mesmeric ensemble playing – 6 actors recreate 62 roles in re-telling this story that inspires and perspires in the same evening!
