Munster fight back to deny Zebre

BJ Botha scored the decisive try as Munster beat Zebre

Munster overcame an eight-point half-time deficit to win 27-25 and ensure RaboDirect Pro12 minnows Zebre finished their campaign without a single victory.

The Italian side looked on course to end a disastrous season with a flourish when they went in at the interval 22-14 ahead.

However, Munster, who themselves have an endured a forgettable few months, hit back in the second half and BJ Botha's 65th-minute try, which was converted by Ian Keatley, gave the visitors the points.
