A try from Ross Wardle in the 76th minute gave The Dragons a 30-24 win over Munster tonight in front of a 7523 audience at Rodney Parade.
And that winner came almost immediately after it looked like Johne Murphy's score under the posts converted by Ian Keatley had edged Munster 24-22 in front.

From the restart, Murphy kicked back downfield but Toby Faletau gathered and ran it back, a move that ended in Wardle's try.

Tom Prydie added a further penalty to leave Munster requiring a converted try to win and though they tried valiantly the home defence held firm.

Munster trailed 19-5 at the break and then went further behind when Prydie landed a 48th minute penalty.

To their credit they came roaring back and tries from Ronan O'Mahony - who made an impressive debut - replacement CJ Stander and then Murphy saw them edge in front before Wardle and Prydie denied them.
