PRO14 Round 12 Highlights: Munster Rugby v Leinster Rugby

Munster kept their discipline to claim a 26-17 home win over rivals Leinster in a fiery round 12 Pro14 clash. Munster opened the scoring with an early try for a 7-0 lead. Leinster then picked up a yellow card, but slotted a penalty to get on the board at 7-3. A second Leinster yellow card was shortly followed by a red as the visitors went down to 13 players. Munster kept the scoreboard ticking over with two penalties to take a 13-3 lead into the halftime break after a crazy first forty. Munster kicked an early second half penalty to extend their lead, but shortly afterwards Leinster hit back with their first try to get back into the match and reduce the deficit to just six points at 16-10. Another Munster penalty made it a nine point ball game with 15 minutes remaining. Leinster pushed for a score to get back in the game, but an 85m intercept try saw Munster all but wrap up the match with a little under ten minutes to play. Leinster fought to the bitter end and were rewarded with a consolation try with time up on clock.
