Niall Ronan was the star of the show, notching a hat-trick of tries to go with Keith Earls’ first half effort as the visitors secured a bonus-point win. Glasgow were left with nothing, despite first-half tries from Lome Fa'atau and Kelly Brown, and Warriors fly-half Dan Parks had a night to forget.
The league leaders had the night’s first penalty chance after Glasgow’s Brown was somewhat harshly penalized for not releasing the ball. Paul Warwick could not capitalize as his kick sailed high and to the left of the posts.
Shortly after, Munster conceded the night’s first try. Tony McGahan will not have been happy with his side's defensive work as the ball was moved quickly from Johnnie Beattie to Max Evans via Parks. Evans timed his pass to release Fa'atau and the Samoan winger, on his return from injury, ran through to open the scoring.
Parks was off target with his conversion attempt and Munster responded with a try of their own. Some great handling work from Mick O’Driscoll, combined with some poor defending from Brown, allowed Neil Ronan to run under the post for the touchdown. Warwick converted and it was now 7-5 Munster.
Seven minutes into the second half, Coughlan returned with the score the same. A five-meter scrum led to a forward assault that saw Ronan barge over for his second try. Warwick missed the subsequent conversion attempt, but Munster were beginning to pull away.
Glasgow: Bernardo Stortoni; Lome Fa'atau, Max Evans, Ruaridh Jackson, Colin Shaw; Dan Parks, Mark McMillan; Justin Va'a, Fergus Thomson, Moray Low; Tim Barker, Alastair Kellock [capt]; James Eddie, Kelly Brown, Johnnie Beattie.
