Munster have kept their Heineken Cup defence on track with an away win over the Cardiff Blues at the Arms Park this afternoon.
The champs have now equalled the 11-match unbeaten run in the competition set by Leicester, who's back-to-back tournament victories Declan Kidney & Co are seeking to emulate.
Ronan O'Gara kicked five penalties in poor conditions that suited the traditional Munster game.
Denis Leamy got the matches only try, from a first-half rolling maul, and O'Gara made no mistake with the conversion.
Cardiff now face the return match in 'Fortress Thomond' next weekend needing a win to stay in contention in Pool 4.
Leicester beat Bourgoin 28-13 in France on Friday evening and trail group leaders Munster by four points on nine.
