Nora Stapleton conjured a classic Barbarians try as the club's first women's game was crowned with a win over Munster at Thomond Park.

Stapleton set up Georgina Roberts for a brilliant third try, while a penalty try and another from Ailish Egan gave the Baa-Baas the win.

The opening score was a 27th-minute penalty try, and after some unrewarded sustained pressure from Munster they swapped all 15 players at the break.

It was 7-0 at half-time and Munster failed to make a breakthrough after the interval - Egan dotted down in 64th minute and five minutes later the brilliance of Stapleton and Christelle LeDuff led to Barbarians' third try.
