O'Mahony leads Munster's revival

Munster kept up their 100 per cent record in the British & Irish Cup following a hard-fought win at Neath.

Skipper Peter O'Mahony and Tom Gleeson scored second-half tries to seal an impressive comeback at the Gnoll.

Munster saw Ed Kelly yellow-carded for killing the ball and the visitors trailed 12-0 at the interval after four penalties from Arwel Thomas. Declan Cusack booted two penalties before Neath's Gareth Gravell was sent to the bin for a dust-up with O'Mahony but the No 8 capitalised and crashed over before Gleeson capped the win.
