Munster dogged it out in rainy Edinburgh to move four points clear of the Ospreys atop the Pro12 table.
The 10-9 scoreline was rather indicative of a woefully unattractive and error-strewn game in difficult conditions, and indeed it could so easily have gone awry right at the death for Rassie Erasmus' men, as a last-play Edinburgh penalty from 53 metres dropped just short.
It was three points from the boot of Tyler Bleyendaal which ultimately proved to be the winning of the match, but the Kiwi fly-half's role in the game's only try was equally decisive. With Munster knocking on the door through two consecutive five-metre scrums, their forwards bashed the ball towards the line.
Scrum-half Duncan Williams then fired an arrow-like pass to Bleyendaal on his right-hand side, with the former Crusader deftly reversing the ball into the path of the on-rushing Ronan O'Mahony, whose beautiful line saw him crash over from five metres out.
Hands as soft as a summer's evening down the lakes of Killarney.
Munster's run continues.
