Munster secured a crucial bonus-point away win against Ospreys this evening in the opening round of the Champions Cup with winger Andrew Conway scoring another absolute worldie of a try.
The southern province didn’t exactly set the world on fire in the first-half but a try from loosehead prop Jeremy Loughman and a couple of penalties from Tyler Bleyendaal gave them the edge heading into the break.
Ten minutes into the second-half Keith Earls showed all his experience with a wonderful finish in the corner to make it 18-6 before man of the match Loughman popped up with a beautiful pass to Chris Farrell who let Andrew Conway do all the work for an incredible score just two minutes later.
The Ireland international has been in excellent form since returning from the World Cup, showing all his pace to go in at the corner. Irish fans must still be thinking what could have been had he been given a proper chance in Japan.
The pass from Loughman! 😮

Munster were a bit careless with possession after Conway’s score, coughing up some needless penalties in the last half hour. Ospreys scored a late try through Aled Davies but the game was dead and buried at that stage.
But in typical Munster fashion, with 84 minutes gone they secured what could be a massive bonus-point following a maul in the corner.
