Hanrahan shines in Munster stroll

JJ Hanrahan marked his first start for Munster with two tries and a man-of-the-match display as they beat Zebre 29-3 at Thomond Park.

An uninspiring first half produced just six points, with Ian Keatley and Zebre's Australian centre Daniel Halangahu striking a single penalty apiece.

But Munster found an extra gear or two after that, inviting Hanrahan, twice, and Felix Jones through for tries and Luke O'Dea dotted down for a 76th-minute bonus-point score.
