Munster seek bonus-point win

Munster Rugby No.8 CJ Stander

Munster Rugby will be going all out for a bonus-point victory in their Heineken Champions Cup Round 6 home match against Ospreys on Sunday – but even that may not be enough to qualify for the last eight for the fourth successive season.

They currently lie third in Pool 4 – three points behind Saracens, who entertain pool winners Racing 92 in Sunday’s other fixture in the section.

Key facts

  • Munster have won five of their six Heineken Champions Cup games against Ospreys, including their last three home games against the Welsh region.
  • Munster are unbeaten in their last 14 home games in the competition.
  • Munster have kicked more penalty goals than any other side in the tournament this season (13).

Munster may have failed to qualify for the Heineken Champions Cup quarter-finals but they finished this season’s campaign in style with a bonus-point victory over winless Ospreys in Pool 4.

Ospreys initially took a six-point lead thanks to a couple of Luke Price penalties but the hosts took control after the half-hour mark.

CJ Stander firstly burrowed over the line for the game’s opening try, with JJ Hanrahan converting. Right on the half-time whistle, Stephen Archer touched down at the base of the right-hand post, giving Hanrahan a simple task with the boot.

An early injury to wing Andrew Conway was the only fly in the ointment for the hosts – and Ireland – ahead of the Six Nations.

Conor Murray crossed for Munster’s third on 47 minutes and after Rory Scannell inexplicably dropped the ball when touching down what should have been a fourth try, Munster did claim a further five points through youngster Craig Casey’s first ever try for the club.

European debutant Jack O’Sullivan and Calvin Nash almost added a fifth, but that honour in the end went to CJ Stander, getting his second of the game after peeling off the back of a surging scrum.
