‘Alone It Stands’ tells the now legendary story of October 31st, 1978 when Munster played the mighty All Blacks in a David versus Goliath scenario at Thomond Park. Munster 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 a mesmeric ensemble, six actors recreate sixty-two roles in re-telling this inspiring story.
