In ideal playing conditions at the Sportsground Munster claimed a bonus point victory against Connacht to win 32-23 tonight, moving the province back to 2nd spot in the table.
Ryan Lamb kicked four first half penalties and a drop goal to give his side a 15-6 interval lead. They looked to have killed off the Munster challenge with that Ojo try but inspired by the arrival off the bench of David Wallace Munster hung in there.
Only superb defence kept them out at the end of the closing quarter when first Tony Buckley and then Denis Leamy were denied. Delon Armitage had extended the Irish lead with a penalty from just inside his own half and then when his next effort fell short Munster countered to snatch the late try.
