Munster outmuscled by Scarlets

Aled Thomas scored eight points as Scarlets defeated Munster

Scarlets won for the first time in eight visits to Musgrave Park as they outmuscled Munster 13-6 in horrendous playing conditions.

A penalty apiece from Ian Keatley and Aled Thomas were the only scores of a slow-burning first half in weather-beaten Cork. Thomas kicked the Welshmen ahead in the 68th minute before Andy Fenby pounced on a Felix Jones mistake to score his sixth try of the RaboDirect PRO12 season.

Thomas added an excellent conversion, but Munster answered back in injury time with replacement JJ Hanrahan's penalty giving them a losing bonus point.
