Munster 10 - 7 Glasgow Warriors

GUINNESS PRO12 match played at Irish Independent Park on Saturday April 8th 2017 | No comments

Stuart Hogg's try gave Glasgow hope
Warriors hopes of a PRO12 play-off spot are all but over after tonight's defeat to Munster in Cork.

Stuart Hogg scored a late try but it was not enough for Glasgow Warriors as Munster held on to claim a vital 10-7 victory.

James Cronin crossed early for the Irish side in a tense, low-scoring affair - but it was Glasgow who enjoyed possession for large parts of the first half without adding to the scoreboard.

Munster pushed for a vital try in the second half, missing some good opportunities.

And when Hogg crossed, it looked they would be made to pay, but Munster held on for their fourth victory of the season over Warriors.

Munster went ahead early at Irish Independent Park as prop Cronin muscled his way over from a couple metres after a sustained period of pressure.

Glasgow surged forwards, commanding territory and possession but they could not find a way through Munster's back line.

The hosts quickly went up the other end, but a dropped pass cost them a glorious chance of adding to their score.

After the break, Munster thought they had added a second score when they drove forward from a five-metre scrum, but the were pulled back for an earlier infringement.

The Warriors were hanging on and Ronan O'Mahony thought he had crossed in the corner - but the TMO ruled it out after reviewing the grounding.

Rory Scannell kicked a penalty minutes later though, increasing their lead to ten points.

But Glasgow got back into it as Hogg crossed after an excellentchip and chase.

However, that was as good as it got for the Warriors, as Munster closed out the game with some last-ditch defending.
