Watch: Stunning Andrew Conway Try Hands Munster Win Over Ulster

After yet another disappointment associated with an Ireland World Cup campaign, provincial rugby is very much back in focus. Leinster produced a convincing win over Connacht last night, meaning it was the turn of Ulster and Munster to entertain the masses this evening.

While the game in The Sportground was a one sided affair, the other two provinces produced a cracking 80 minutes of rugby.

CJ Stander got the first try of the evening, powering over from close range to touch down underneath the posts.

Rory Scannell got their second of the night just before halftime, showing great pace to reach the line before he was taken down by the Ulster defence.

Ulster got themselves back into the game early in the second half, with hooker Rob Herring peeling away from the maul to get their first try of the night.

A penalty from John Cooney would soon put the visitors in front, but it was Andrew Conway who had the final say.

He received a beautiful slip pass on the halfway line before turning on the afterburners to evade the Ulster defence, shaking off a couple of tackles in the progress.

The winger was one of the few players to emerge from Ireland's World Cup campaign having displayed some good form, and he certainly carried that into this evening's clash.

This was Munster's fifth win in six games, with the only blot on their record being the loss to the Cheetahs in South Africa. They sit top of Conference B, while Ulster remain in second place in Conference A after their second loss of the campaign.
