Munster up to third

Munster reclaimed third place in the RaboDirect PRO12 thanks to a 29-11 bonus-point victory over Benetton Treviso at Thomond Park.

Niall Ronan registered the only try of the opening 40 minutes, with Treviso's Kris Burton converting two of his three penalty opportunities.

Munster improved their 10-6 half-time lead with a converted effort from Keith Earls, only for Manoa Vosawai to hit back with a try for Treviso within four minutes but man-of-the-match James Coughlan crossed for a deserved score and Simon Zebo's late touchdown confirmed a five-point haul for the province.
