There is no doubt that traveling to South Africa ahead of a Champions Cup semi-final is not how Munster would have preferred to spend their time.
Pro 14 commitments determined however that Johann van Graan's side would face the Southern Kings only a week after they had reached that semi-final thanks to an epic win against Toulon.
However, determined to keep the momentum going, Munster racked up a big win tonight and, furthermore, did it in some style; running out 39-22 winners.
The move of the match unquestionably came when Dan Goggin finished off an incredible end-to-end try that just had so much about it to love.
With the score 20-15 in Munster's favour, the Southern Kings were pressing for a try deep in opposition territory. When Ian Keatley picked up on a fumbled ball, he didn't initially look to be going anywhere.
Finding help in the nick of time, Munster broke. With incredibly quick hands, the move of the lot came from Calvin Nash who fed the ball into Goggin's path with phenomenal speed.
