Watch: Munster Recover From 14-Point Deficit To Snatch Late, Late Victory At Ospreys

After being battered for the opening half hour in Swansea, Munster left it late to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat once more as they edged the Ospreys in a 25-23 thriller.

It was a try from 'Killer' and a pristine conversion from Tyler Bleyendaal which ultimately slipped the high-flying Ospreys' wings, although the hosts felt aggrieved at a number of decisions at the death - namely a Bleyendaal knock-on which on another day might have been perceived as deliberate, and a Kevin O'Byrne tackle which was adjudged to have been fine by the officials on review after last play.

Munster found themselves 17-3 down in the first half before tries from Jack O'Donoghue and Francis Saili brought them to within two points at half-time. After prolonged spells of pressure and supreme Ospreys defence, it was magic from the hands of the extremely impressive Darren Sweetnam and the in-form Bleyendaal which carved a hole for Andrew Conway in behind. From there, Munster's composure from five yards out once more stood testament, and Dave Kilcoyce crashed over.
