Munster came from a 10-0 first half deficit to easily defeat Italian side Treviso at Thomond Park on Saturday,

Treviso were coming into this game off a huge win against Perpignan last weekend, and after Munster’s close defeat to Northampton away, the Irish side was expecting a tough test from the Italian team.

That script seemed to be playing out as the visitor raced into ten-point lead with two unconverted tries from Brendan Williams and Andy Vilk.

However, the double try salvo was enough to awake the Munster giants, and the home team hit back with two converted tries of their own from Paul Warwick and Ian Dowling that gave them a 12-10 lead at the break.

Whatever coach Tony McGahan said at the half time break certainly worked as Munster dominated the second half, keeping Treviso scoreless and scoring five more tries from Denis Leamy, Denis Fogarty, David Wallace, Ian Dowling and Jean de Villiers to run out winners 41-10, an notching up a bonus point along the way.
