The British and Irish Cup champions began brightly and forced a penalty try, before Luke O'Dea got over after strong work in the scrum to cancel out a Jimmy Williams try and a penalty from Rotherham's former Ireland U-20 international James McKinney.

After the break, James Cronin, Sean Henry and Scott Deasy – who came in for Hanrahan at the last minute – added tries to get the all-important bonus and cap a fine display.

ROTHERHAM TITANS – F Mulchrone (capt); P Homan, J Gill, P Nonu, E Styles; J McKinney, J Williams; S Cahill, T Stagg, G Denman; T Freeman, N Dacres; L Makaafi, J Ellyatt, R Pitman.

MUNSTER 'A' – D Hurley; L O'Dea, D Barnes, I Dineen, J Murphy; S Deasy, C Sheridan; J Cronin, S Henry (capt), J Ryan; D Foley, I Nagle; B Hayes, R Murphy, S Buckley.
