In a superb weekend for the province with the senior team, Munster A and the Munster Women’s team all securing victories, the standout performance was the incredible 38-0 defeat of Leicester Tigers in the Champions Cup.

Tyler Bleyendaal kicked four penalties and converted Simon Zebo's try to give Munster a 19-0 half-time lead.

Two further tries from Jaco Taute and a penalty try when the South African centre was tackled without the ball as he chased his hat-trick in the second half secured the bonus point win (full report here and Rassie Erasmus reaction here).

Bleyendaal added two further conversions to complete a memorable day at a packed out Thomond Park.
