Watch: Absolute Scenes As Monster Kick Secures Late Munster Win

On a difficult afternoon for Munster in the Pro 14, the Irish province found themselves trailing Glasgow 15-24 with little over half-an-hour remaining.

Rallying incredibly well, an Alby Mathewson try, Ian Keatley conversion and late, late, Rory Scannell penalty overturned what looked to have been a lost cause.

Finishing 25-24 in Munster's favour, the result - or the manner in which it was earned - sparked scenes of great jubilation in Thomand Park.

To be fair, a 55-metre kick to win a game on a cold October night is good going.

Having gone in at the break trailing, Munster, after two weeks of impressive Champions Cup performances, struggled to get going.

With only a scattering of players standing out on a difficult night, the ever-reliant Peter O'Mahony and new-man Alby Mathewson impressed; the former playing a vital role in winning what would be the match-winning penalty.

This first-half block down summing up the fearless kind of mood O'Mahony was in on the night.

Unfortunately, O'Mahony's night would not end on a positive note; a shoulder injury forcing him off the field of play prematurely.

An important win after a hectic fortnight of Champions Cup action, Munster were clearly delighted with their last-gasp win.
