Glasgow regained top spot in the RaboDirect PRO12 league - at least for 24 hours - with a thrilling 51-24 win over Munster.

Munster's first-half tries from Casey Laulala and David Kilcoyne both converted by Ronan O'Gara were countered by interception scores from Sean Maitland and Niko Manawatu, while Ruaridh Jackson converted both and kicked two late penalties that ensured Glasgow were ahead at half-time.

There was no stopping Glasgow after the interval with Jackson, Mark Bennett, Stuart Hogg and John Barclay all touching down with the former, who also kicked a penalty, converting the first pair and Duncan Weir the remaining brace.

Doug Howlett scored Munster's late consolation try converted by Ian Keatley and O'Gara kicked a penalty.
