LEINSTER & MUNSTER WIN AS CONNACHT LOSE AGAIN IN THE PRO12 LEAGUE


EDINBURGH 17-34 MUNSTER



Centre Danny Barnes, 22, crossed for his fourth try in this season's RaboDirect PRO12 and 21-year-old wing duo Simon Zebo and Luke O'Dea also touched down.


Edinburgh could not survive after having props Jack Gilding and Kyle Traynor sin-binned in the second half, conceding a penalty try as Munster went on to claim a deserved bonus point.






CONNACHT 6-17 0SPREYS


With seven minutes left before half-time, Webb blitzed past Brett Wilkinson and up into the Connacht 22, offloading for Morgan to brilliantly dance around Gavin Duffy and race in behind the posts.


He comfortably converted his own try and although Nikora replied shortly afterwards, Hibbard fumbled a pass out wide when the Ospreys looked set to add a second try late on.


The visitors' scrum was growing in influence with prop Duncan Jones, celebrating his 150th appearance for the region, putting Rodney Ah You under a good deal of pressure.


Connacht were the aggressors when the second half got under way, a series of penalties getting them into try-scoring range before Ian Gough was yellow carded after infringing at a maul.


But Eric Elwood's men had nothing to show for their period of dominance and Morgan failed with a long range penalty as the Ospreys finally got out of their own half.






TREVISO 20-30 LEINSTER


Fergus McFadden claimed a 15-point haul as Leinster beat Treviso 30-20 in a hard-fought clash at the Stadio Monigo.


Wing McFadden kicked three penalties and three conversions as the reigning Heineken Cup champions gained revenge for last year's shock defeat in Italy.
