HIGHLIGHTS | Injury Stricken Munster see off Glasgow to set up URC semi-final with Leinster

Munster will now face Leinster in the semi-finals next Saturday at the Aviva Stadium with a 5.30pm kick-off.

Munster are into the URC semi-finals after a bruising quarter-final win over Glasgow at Scotstoun, becoming the first away side to win at Glasgow all season.

Malakai Fekitoa and Antoine Frisch scored both Munster tries in the first half with Jack Crowley kicking the two conversions.

A red card for Glasgow out-half Tom Jordan was a blow for the hosts but they kept the pressure on Munster in the second half with Kyle Steyn touching down.

The victory came at a price with Peter O’Mahony, RG Snyman, Conor Murray, Diarmuid Barron, Calvin Nash and Malakai Fekiota all departing with knocks.

Munster will face Leinster in the semi-finals next Saturday at the Aviva Stadium with a 5.30pm kick-off. Tickets will go on general sale on Tuesday.
