As the club with the fewest red and yellow cards or citings during 2007/08, Munster Rugby has been awarded €13,000 by Specsavers, the official optical partner and referee sponsor for the Magners League. The €13,000 will be used to fund development in junior clubs within the Munster region.
Specsavers chairperson in Ireland Hugh Morris said: “Rugby is a game of passion and I am delighted to reward Munster Rugby for showing exemplary conduct on the pitch.
“As opticians, we understand that vision is vital to good sportsmanship and our sponsorship helps to ensure our referees are seeing clearly – something that is sure to resonate with the referees and fans.
“Munster played exceptionally throughout the Magners League, highlighting that winning results can come from clean conduct on and off the pitch. With the 2008/09 Magners League about to commence we hope that the recognition of Munster’s conduct will encourage the need for fairplay in rugby."
Munster Rugby was awarded six yellow cards which totalled six points for the 2007/08 season, closely followed by the Glasgow Warriors who narrowly missed out on the top spot with only seven points.
Magners League winners Leinster came in with nine points. Ospreys and Edinburgh Rugby finished the league collecting 10 points whilst Llanelli Scarlets, Ulster and Cardiff Blues came in with 14 points.
Connacht received 15 points and Newport Gwent Dragons tallied up 21 points in total.
