PRO14 round-up: Munster book semi-final after win over Connacht; Cardiff Blues beat Ospreys

Andrew Conway scored twice as Munster thrashed Connacht to book a semi-final with Leinster

A round-up of Sunday's Guinness PRO14 action as Munster thrashed Connacht to book a semi-final, while Cardiff Blues beat the Ospreys and Benetton beat Zebre.


Andrew Conway scored two tries as Munster took advantage of two first-half red cards for opponents Connacht to reach the Guinness PRO14 semi-finals thanks to a 49-12 bonus-point win.


Debutant Connacht No 8 Abraham Papali'i was sent off for a 25th-minute high tackle on Conor Murray, while - nine minutes later - hooker Shane Delahunt saw red after leading with an elbow into CJ Stander's neck. บาคาร่าเล่นง่าย

Munster punished Conor Oliver's early sin-binning with a seventh-minute Chris Cloete try and a penalty try before prop Jeremy Loughman added a third, while Connacht replacement Bundee Aki replied to make it 21-7 at half-time.

Recovering from two yellows of their own, Munster went on to dominate the second half as they climbed back above Scarlets into second place in Conference B.

Tries from man-of-the-match Tadhg Beirne, Conway (2) and James Cronin dwarfed a Jonny Murphy effort as Johann van Graan's men set up a last-four clash with old foes Leinster back at the Aviva Stadium next Friday.
