Leinster came out on top against Munster at the Aviva this evening but thanks to Cian Healy, it was a very nervy finish.

The replacement prop was sin-binned in the dying minutes for this no-arms charge into Dave Kilcoyne's knees, and after consulting the TMO, the referee opted for just a yellow card.

With Healy in the bin, Munster piled on the pressure but Leinster just about held out to pick up a valuable win. Do you think the prop was lucky not to see red for this challenge?
