Munster may have runaway with top spot in the Magners League during the regular season - however only Ronan O'Gara has made it in to the Dream Team for 2010/11.

Munster are currently 14 points clear at the top of the standings, with one round of games ahead of the play-offs to go.

However, only Ireland fly-half O'Gara has made the cut for the Dream Team - with second-placed Leinster making up a third of the team.

Leinster No.8 James Heaslip leads his side's contingent, joining Sean O'Brien, Mike Ross, Isa Nacewa and Richardt Strauss in the line-up.

It is the second successive season Heaslip has been included in the Dream Team, with record-breaking Tim Visser the other survivor from last season.

Visser has set a new try-scoring record over the campaign, with the Edinburgh winger having crossed 14 times.

Cardiff Blues and the Sacrlets both have two players each in the line-up, while the Ospreys, Connacht, Ulster and Glasgow Warriors are also represented.

However the Dragons, Aironi and Treviso have all been overlooked.

Magners League Dream Team 2010/11: 15 Isa Nacewa (Leinster), 14 Fionn Carr (Connacht), 13 Casey Laulala (Cardiff Blues), 12 Jonathan Davies (Scarlets), 11 Tim Visser (Edinburgh), 10 Ronan O'Gara (Munster), 9 Ruan Pienaar (Ulster), 1 Iestyn Thomas (Scarlets), 2 Richardt Strauss (Leinster), 3 Mike Ross (Leinster), 4 Alun Wyn Jones (Ospreys), 5 Richie Gray (Glasgow Warriors), 6 Sean O'Brien (Leinster), 7 Sam Warburton (Cardiff Blues), 8 Jamie Heaslip (Leinster).
