Munster had to make do with a losing bonus point following their trip to BT Murrayfield in the Guinness Pro 14 last night.
Duhan van der Merwe crossed twice for the home side while two penalties from JJ Hanrahan was all Munster could muster.
Johann van Graan’s men now set into a run of two crucial games in Thomond Park, facing last years Pro 14 winners Scarlets before welcoming Toulon in the European Champions Cup quarter-final.
The South African will be hoping to have the international quartet of Conor Murray, Keith Earls, Peter O’Mahony and CJ Stander fit and ready for the latter.
