Conor Murray crossed for a try in Munster's win at Edinburgh

Munster remain in the hunt for a place in the knockout stages of the Heineken Cup after a laboured 26-17 win over a lacklustre Edinburgh side that only sprang to life in the final 10 minutes at Murrayfield.

A penalty try and a touchdown by Conor Murray plus 14 points from the boot of Ronan O'Gara sealed the victory for the visitors, while the home side's points came through two tries from Dougie Fife, both converted by Greig Laidlaw, who also landed a penalty.

The win leaves Munster in second place in Pool One on 15 points, three behind leaders Saracens and three ahead of Racing Metro. Edinburgh remain bottom without a point.
