Munster bounce back with Gloucester victory

Munster bounced back from last week’s loss in the Heineken Cup by beating Gloucester 26-10 at Thomond Park on Saturday.

Munster were shocked 29-23 last weekend by Edinburgh but returned home this week and got their campaign back on track.

Johne Murphy’s 67th-minute try for Munster proved decisive at Thomond Park
although the Irish side were unable to carve out a bonus point.
