Munster take derby spoils

Connacht had the better of possession and territory but Munster still managed to win a rip-roaring RaboDirect PRO12 derby 20-16.

Chasing their first interprovincial win since April 2010, Connacht foraged into a 10-6 half-time lead thanks to a converted try from hooker Ethienne Reynecke.

The 7,022 attendance, a record crowd for a league game in Galway, watched Simon Zebo zip though for a levelling try with just over 20 minutes left. Miah Nikora, who finished with 11 points, kicked Connacht back in front only for flanker Tommy O'Donnell's 67th-minute try to seal it for the visitors.
