Munster battle back to keep home record intact

jmcconnell 3 Feb 2005

The visitors were 13 points ahead mid way through the first period  But tries either side of the break from Jason Holland, Alan Quinlan and James Storey saw the Irish province’s year-long unbeaten run in Limerick remain intact.

Calvin Howarth had got the Scots on the board early and although Paul Burke pulled a penalty back after Howarth’s second successful kick Dan Turner soon increased the Glasgow lead as he inched over for their first try. Howarth added the conversion and a third penalty to make it 16-3 before the Munster men moved up a gear and took the game to Glasgow.

Holland and Quinlan’s tries in quick succession coupled with a Burke conversion and penalty put the home side in front before Storey got in for his first try in Munster colours, with Burke again converting.
With Munster number eight David Wallace in the sin-bin, Howarth did manage to pick up a late bonus point for Europe-chasing Glasgow with an injury time penalty, but the home win was already sealed.
