The Munster squad trained at a sunny CIT today after a week's break as preparations begin for the RaboDirect PRO12 clash against Treviso at Thomond Park on Saturday, March 22nd (ko 7:15pm).
In the semi final the 24 year old scorched in for two superb tries and was replaced immediately after he added the conversion of the second, to be kept fresh for the final.
It proved a clever ploy as Manning played a central role in what was a close final and a tense finish.
Manning also scored a try in the earlier round game against Leicester Tigers.
In the main event London Irish were beaten 15-12 by the Samurai side.
