O'Connell leads Munster to victory

Paul O'Connell made a winning return from injury for Munster as they overcame the Cardiff Blues 16-9 in foggy conditions at Thomond Park.

Dan Parks' brace of penalties handed the Blues a 6-3 half-time lead, with his opposite number Ronan O'Gara notching a reply for the home side.

But seven minutes into the second half, Alan Quinlan stretched over for the game's only try and O'Gara took his place-kicking haul to 11 points as the Magners League leaders returned to winning ways.
