Stander leads Munster to victory

CJ Stander marked his home debut for Munster with two tries as they bagged a late bonus point in the 31-3 RaboDirect PRO12 win over Glasgow Warriors in Limerick.

The South African flanker lunged over from a close-in ruck for his first, but his second - nearing half-time - was a dazzling diagonal run out of the Munster 22 that saw him outpace the Glasgow chasers.

His back-row colleague Tommy O'Donnell sandwiched a try in between, leaving the province 24-3 ahead at the break with Ronan O'Gara landing three conversions and a penalty.

DTH van der Merwe went closest to crossing the whitewash for the Warriors, who leaked a penalty try to the hosts with six minutes remaining, which O'Gara converted.

Duncan Weir kicked a penalty for Glasgow.
