Munster suffered a first defeat at Thomond Park in two years on Saturday night as Leinster secured a 13-6 Guinness PRO14 victory in Limerick.

JJ Hanrahan kicked both Munster penalties with three Greencore Munster Rugby Academy players featuring off the bench – Keynan Knox, Jack O’Sullivan and Diarmuid Barron – with Joey Carbery making his first appearance of the season off the bench.

Despite the defeat, Munster stay top of Guinness PRO14 Conference with the losing bonus-point keeping the province one point ahead of second-placed Edinburgh.

A record-equalling crowd of 26,267 were in attendance for the clash.
