Munster at half-time in Firhill

Munster find themselves behind at the break with Glasgow leading 12-3 at halftime.

From the kick off Munster looked promising attacking the Glasgow line and Jeremy Manning opened the scoring after seven minutes with a penalty. But Munster’s attack was short lived as Glasgow maintained the upper hand for the remainder of the half. 

Dominating at the scrums and the breakdown Glasgow were rewarded with a series of penalties with Dan Parks duly converting.

Peter Stringer was sinbinned just at the halfway mark and Munster have it all to do in the second half to turn the 12-3 deficit  around.
