Clinical Munster Demolish Gloucester To Take Control Of Pool 2

However, Munster responded back when a pass from Billy Holland found Keith Earls as he dived in the corner.

Gloucester managed tries by wing Ollie Thorley and prop Fraser Balmain, plus a Billy Twelvetrees penalty and conversion, yet they remain bottom of Pool Two after Munster opened up an eight-point lead at the top.

The one downside for Munster was the rip injury sustained by team captain Peter O'Mahony in the second half which forced the flanker to be replaced.

And nearly four minutes into dead time of the first half, Johan van Graan's men got over for their second try when they showed exceptional control through 27 phases of possession before centre Scannell burst through the line, bounced past Charlie Sharples and dodged the despairing efforts of Ed Slater and Callum Braley to touch down. Carbery knocked over a terrific touchline conversion for a 27-8 scoreline with 23 minutes to go.

Some patient play saw Munster inch towards the try line before Rory Scannell shrugged off a number of tackles to touch down after 26 phrases.

Conway was denied Munster's bonus point try on the hour mark after he chipped ahead to finish superbly but Farrell's offload was adjudged to be forward in the build-up.

However, an inventive Carbery kick in behind the defence was fastened onto by Conway who gobbled it up to deservedly register the bonus point. The visitors levelled matters through Carbery's first penalty before the Irish global was found by halfback partner Conor Murray and scampered in for a self-converted try.

Dave Grohl chugs beer, falls off stage at Las Vegas show
It looks like Dave Grohl may have had a little too much fun during his show in Las Vegas on Wednesday night (January 9). In the video, a fan hands him a can of beer, which he tries to drink while playing before spilling it on a speaker.

Giving his reaction afterwards, Munster boss van Graan said: "We're very happy with the win and the bonus point".

Gloucester knew they had to score first to have any chance of sustaining a comeback.

"We knew this was going to be a massive game tonight". I thought we dominated the collisions.

"I hope it's the bump in the road that we had last season and I hope at the end of this block there's a bit of time, free time to regenerate players, there will be players coming back and we'll just keep working on things but hopefully this is our bad part of the season and we'll pick it up from there".

"The try they scored after half-time was 35 phases and even though they scored the try that actually made us stronger in terms of our belief".

The talented out-half bagged a brace of tries and added 16 points off the tee to secure a comprehensive away win. Exeter is a good side and Munster. It's only Friday night now, which means two extra rest days, we'll reassess on Monday and we start again at zero.
