The Pro12 waits for no man, and despite the Six Nations fixtures this weekend, the domestic schedule rumbles on.
Munster are in action against Newport Gwent Dragons as the Irish province look to continue their rejuvenation under Rassie Erasmus, and so far it looks to be going their way at Musgrave Park.
With twenty minutes gone and with the away side threatening to gain a foothold in the game, fly-half Tyler Bleyendaal intercepted and although he wasn’t able to run the length of the pitch himself, he kicked the ball forward, either in hope or expectation, that a teammate could finish the job.

That teammate turned out to be Andrew Conway, who finished off a wonderful counter-attacking move from Munster.
The home side went into half time 31-10 to the good, Conway’s try coming either side of two from Jaco Taute and a penalty try just before the break, with Bleyendaal four for four in conversions so far.
A win would keep the province on top of the table, a welcome boost given the loss of a number of players to Joe Schmidt’s Ireland squad for the next few weeks.
