Munster A just edged out Connacht Eagles 32-26 in an eight-try thriller at Dooradoyle this afternoon.
Benetton Treviso replied with a 62nd minute try from winger Ludovico Nitoglia but by then the result never in doubt.
Mike Sherry scored Munster's fifth and final try just before the final whistle.
Man of the match David Wallace after the win "We had a good attitude tonight, all things worked well for us and our set piece gave the backs a platform to work from. Everyone who came on made a huge impact, and that's what we ask for across the 23."
