The match, played in front of a world record crowd for a club game of 82,206 fans, features tries from Leinster trio Gordon D'Arcy, Luke Fitzgerald and man of the match Brian O'Driscoll.
A superb defensive display limited favourites Munster to just two Ronan O'Gara penalties and erased the memories of the defeat to their fierce Irish rivals at the same stage in 2006.
Jenkins, who originally combined his duties as Wales coach alongside his role as Scarlets director of rugby said, "After briefly discussing the framework and structure I will be working to as national coach with WRU chief executive Steve Lewis, and meeting with the rest of the full-time staff at the team's Vale of Glamorgan base, Alan presented his plan for the forthcoming tour of Argentina and we got straight on with the job in hand which is to select a squad of players for our two Test tour of Argentina."
Jenkins' reign proved to be a difficult one, with the Argentina series lost 2-0 before a poor Six Nations in 2007 and a Pool stage exit from the Rugby World Cup caused his replacement by Kiwi Warren Gatland.
