Red Card And Late Penalty Drama As Munster Complete Mad Scarlets Comeback

Red Card And Late Penalty Drama As Munster Complete Mad Scarlets Comeback

What a win!

Munster have completed a remarkable comeback against Scarlets this evening, rallying back from being 14 points down with 12 minutes to go to win the game in dramatic circumstances.

The Welsh side were on top for the vast majority of the contest, with a Leigh Halfpenny penalty in the 66th minute giving them a 24-10 lead. Few could have predicted the Irish side would get back into the game at this point, but a remarkable closing period ensured they would do just that.

It started with a Chris Farrell try, with the centre showing fantastic power to cross the whitewash.

However, that try would also come at a cost.

Peter O'Mahony would be sent off after he received a second yellow card of the game when he dived on Jake Ball during the scoring the of the try.

Munster were still trailing with two minutes to go, but it seemed like they rescued a draw when Kevin O'Byrne touched down in the maul.

There would still be time to get the win.

Ben Healy would nail a monster penalty from the halfway line as the clocked ticked into the red to complete a remarkable comeback.

Not a bad day's work.
