A youthful Munster side made it six wins in a row for the province thanks to a hard-fought bonus-point win over Benetton at Thomond Park on Friday evening.

It was a night of firsts in Limerick as Alex McHenry, Keynan Knox, Roman Salanoa and Ben Healy scored their first Munster tries. JJ Hanrahan was 100% off the tee with a penalty and three conversions as Healy converted his own try.

20-year-old Clonakilty man Cian Hurley (Garryowen) made his Munster debut in the second row as part of a youthful pack that more than held their own. Hurley is the 53rd player to have lined out for Munster so far this season.

Munster completed their regular season Guinness PRO14 campaign with 14 wins and just two defeats ahead of next weekend’s final with Leinster.
