Munster role on

An exemplary kicking display from fly-half Ian Keatley saw RaboDirect PRO12 leaders Munster extend their winning streak in the competition to 14 games following their 18-13 victory over Cardiff Blues.

The former Connacht man, who was sin-binned late on, kicked six penalties out of six at the Cardiff City Stadium as the Irish province ground out a fourth straight win at the start of the new campaign, despite barely making a visit into the Blues 22.

The hosts scored the only try through wing Alex Cuthbert with Ceri Sweeney, whose failure to kick two presentable three-point chances early on proved costly, adding the conversion and two penalties. The Blues thought they had secured at least a draw with the last play as Cuthbert went flying in at the corner, but full-back Dan Fish's pass was forward.
