Munster A recorded a 34-25 win against Leinster A on Friday evening, scoring four tries at a wet and windy Thomond Park.

A mix of senior, Greencore Munster Rugby Academy and club players featured for Munster A with a panel of 24 players getting some much-needed game time.

Although there were opening half tries from Thomas Ahern and Darren Sweetnam it was Leinster A who led at the break with a five point advantage at 22-17.

Munster’s second half tries came from a maul try finished by captain Diarmuid Barron and a Liam Coombes intercept.

Number 10 Jack Crowley converted all four tries for the province and added two penalties.
