O'Gara boots Munster to win

Ronan O'Gara kicked Munster back to the top of the Magners League as they triumphed 22-10 over reigning champions Ospreys at Thomond Park.

A 37th-minute penalty from replacement O'Gara was the sole score of a forgettable first half, but the second period burst into life as Doug Howlett and Tommy Bowe swapped tries.

O'Gara's right boot dominated the remainder as he added four penalty goals for a 17-point personal haul, making Richard Fussell's late try a mere consolation for the off-colour Ospreys.
