WATCH: Highlights as Munster demolish Edinburgh in 8-try rout

Munster were clinical inside the opening 30 minutes against Edinburgh doing enough damage to secure a bonus point with four tries courtesy of Conway (2), Earls and Farrell.

By the half time whistle there were a further two with Earls bagging tow more to complete an eight minute hat trick. Duhan van der Merwe crossed for both Edinburgh’s tries with one in either half. 

Conway, Beirne, Earls and Botha were stand out performers but it was the returning Chris Farrell that claimed the man of the match award in front of a watching Joe Schmidt.
