Munster's past no 13s

Published 03/12/2011 | 05:00

Provided the midfield creativity when Munster made their breakthrough in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Not the quickest centre ever but Mullins was a fine footballer, good enough to be capped by Ireland, whose greatest day was probably the 2000 semi-final win over Toulouse in Bordeaux.

John kelly

Kelly was an excellent option at 13, as he showed when paired with Brian O'Driscoll, who moved to 12, on Ireland's tour to New Zealand in 2002. He played 13 when Munster landed their first Heineken Cup in 2006 but was a more regular feature on the right wing.

Rua tipoki

Had an excellent spell with the province and was superb alongside Lifeimi Mafi in Munster's 2008 march to European glory. A fantastic stepper, Tipoki was guaranteed to generate momentum when he got on the ball.
