Gloucester 15-41 Munster: Joey Carbery gets 26 points as visitors win

Five star Munster score bonus point win at Gloucester

The visitors levelled matters through Carbery's first penalty before the Irish worldwide was found by halfback partner Conor Murray and scampered in for a self-converted try.

Joey Carbery of Munster celebrates after scoring his side's fifth try during the Heineken Champions Cup Pool 2 Round 5 match between Gloucester and Munster at Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester, England.

Gloucester had to score first in the second period, and obliged following a punishing passage of play after O'Mahony went off.

His replacement Billy Holland impressed off the bench, offloading in a tight space for Keith Earls to get over in the corner and Carbery's well-weighted kick through set up Andrew Conway for a 65th-minute bonus point score, before Carbery swooped for a closing intercept try barely two minutes later.

Fly-half Carbery bagged a hugely impressive 26 points in all as Munster cemented their place at the top of Pool 2.

Carbery added the conversion to put Munster nearly out of sight at the break, leading by 17 points.

That was as good as it got for Gloucester - despite a Fraser Balmain consolation try - who were overwhelmed for the remainder of the second half.

Munster were forced into a prolonged rearguard action as Gloucester went through 35 phases before Cipriani's long floated pass found an unmarked Thorley, who continued his rich vein of form by crossing unopposed.

MUNSTER: Mike Haley; Andrew Conway, Chris Farrell, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; Joey Carbery, Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Niall Scannell, Stephen Archer, Jean Kleyn, Tadhg Beirne, Peter O'Mahony (capt), Tommy O'Donnell, CJ Stander. Twelvetrees missed the conversion from a tight angle, it was 20-8 now.

The visitors were penalised early on inside their own half, giving Gloucester a kickable penalty that Billy Twelvetrees would have no problem slotting between the sticks.

Giving his reaction afterwards, Munster boss van Graan said: "We're very happy with the win and the bonus point". We'll take this bonus point win away from home.

"He has clearly added that to his game - if he can remain as consistent as that - he is one of our most gifted and talented players around the field and that play alone, on the right hand side of a ruck where he caught the ball and he manged a quick shuffle of the feet and what he did was he read the defence right in front of him, changed his mind at the last minute and put in a left foot grubber kick - it was just incredibly smart play". Two other moments in the game for me - the try just before half-time that we scored.
