John Hayes enjoyed a winning send-off in Munster colours as they earned their sixth successive victory 24-9 over Connacht in the RaboDirect PRO12.

First half tries from debutant full-back Sean Scanlon and Tomas O'Leary set Munster on their way to an 18-3 interval lead, with Niall O'Connor kicking Connacht's points.

This was a niggly inter-provincial affair beset by scrum problems and with try-scoring chances at a premium, so two more penalties from Ian Keatley was enough to seal the result.
