It’s the first time this season that the province have completed back-to-back wins in the United Rugby Championship.
Munster claimed their fourth victory of the 2022/23 United Rugby Championship campaign when they defeated Edinburgh 38-17 on Friday despite being 12-0 down after twelve minutes.
It was a sluggish start from Graham Rowntree’s men, who were looking to make it back-to-back victories following their Interpro derby win last weekend but found themselves behind after two minutes.
Edinburgh increased the deficit with another try on the twelfth minute mark, with Darcy Graham crossing for the Scottish outfit. That put the hosts 12 to the good and Munster looked rocked at the early stages.
On 23 minutes Craig Casey notched Munster’s first try of the game with Joey Carbery converting but were pegged back again ten minutes later by another Edinburgh try, which would be their final score of the game.
And Munster closed the gap just before half-time with Rory Scannell getting on the scoresheet this time and Carbery making no mistake from the spot. 17-14 the score read heading into the interval.
The red province picked up where they left off, scoring another try seconds after the restart through Calvin Nash to give the visitors the lead for the first time in the game at 21-17.
Munster weren’t finished there however, adding another try and a penalty before the 65th minute mark and completed their rout just before the final whistle with a Joey Carbery try and conversion capping off a fine second-half performance from the province.
The bonus point win leaves Munster eighth in the table and they’re beginning to look a much-improved side from their opening games.
Munster are in European Rugby Champions Cup action on Sunday as they face Toulouse in the group stage.
