From the restart, Academy winger McCarthy chased hard and caught Quins napping as he charged down the clearance and showed good composure to score in the left corner.

The final score of an exciting first half went to Harlequins as Edwards scored under the posts off a slick backline move, converting his own try to make the scores 19-14 at the break.

Harlequins went in front within a minute of the restart but tries from Butler and Daly put Munster firmly back in control at 31-21.

Butler was on hand to convert following a Cronin try, the score now stretched out to 38-21, and the Red Army continued to power to the end as Kiely found the seventh try 15 minutes from time.

That score put Munster 43-21 ahead , and Graham Rowntree’s men held on for the victory despite two late Harlequins tries.
