A try in the 71st minute after 26 phases of play from the outstanding Brian O'Driscoll gave Leinster a 22-16 win over Munster at Thomond Park Stadium
In what was a hugely physical encounter Munster, playing into a strong wind scored two first half tries - Ian Keatley and Felix Jones the scorers - yet trailed 12-10 break after Ian Madigan's four from four return edged the visitors in front.

Keatley kicked Munster in front and they led 16-15 as the game entered the final stages with O'Driscoll putting the finishing touch to a rare yet sustained bout of pressure.
