Munster trained in the sunshine at UL yesterday, ahead of Saturday evening's crucial derby away to Connacht in the RaboDirect PRO12.
However the home side extended their lead with a try from hooker Steve Lawrie and penalty from the unerring Greig Laidlaw and although Munster managed one from replacement Danny Barnes it was a question of much too little much too late.
