Nick Williams touching down for one of his three tries
Hat trick for Williams
9 September 2009, 6:01 pm
A second half try hat trick from Nick Williams helped Munster to a bonus point 27-3 win over the Dragons in front of a near 7000 crowd in sunny Musgrave park
After a fairly laclustre opening half that ended 3 points apiece, Munster opened their account with a 44th minute try from Williams who used his massive strength to burst over from close in.

Biggest cheer of the night came when Tomas O'Leary, deputising for Ronan O'Gara who had been yellow carded along with Dragons Shaun Connors moments earlier, landed the conversion when Williams scored his second try in the 58th minute.

The large crowd was then treated to a piece of Doug Howlett brilliance when he blasted the Dragons defence following a quick tap penalty on half way to score under the posts.

The bonus came in the 75th minute, Williams again on hand to end off a sustained bout of Munster pressure with a try.
