Watch: Rory Scannell’s Offload In Munster’s Win Over Southern Kings Was A Moment Of Genius

Munster put in a strong second-half shift on Saturday night to come from behind and defeat Southern Kings in South Africa.

Johann van Graan’s side, led by CJ Stander on his return to his homeland, went in 15-13 down at the break but came back out a team transformed, coming away with a bonus point in a 39-22 victory in Pro14.

The standout moment of the match, however, came fifteen minutes after the restart. Munster went from the defensive to offensive in the blink of an eye, topped off by a stunning offload from Rory Scannell that sent Dan Goggin away for a try at a pivotal part of the match.

With Stander already having gone over earlier in the first half to swing the tie in Munster’s favour, Goggin’s try after a superb bit of work from Scannell et al gave the Irish province a lead which Southern Kings never looked like catching from there on in.

Munster remain in second place in Group A in the Pro14 standings, well on course for a playoff place at the end of the season.
