Three tries for Connacht, Mack Hansen got the scoring underway followed by Finlay Bealham and Paul Boyle. Munster’s only try scorer was winger Patrick Campbell.

Yet, Canty’s 75th-minute effort was mere consolation as the prolific Parsons had ‘Rock out of reach. Lisa Mullen’s kick through was g ..read more
