In Pics: Munster 10 Dragons 8

Click here for photos from Saturday’s Celtic League meeting between Munster and Newport-Gwent Dragons at Musgrave Park.

Pictured above: Munster captain Anthony Foley leads by example as he scores the province’s only try of their 10-8 defeat of the Dragons, after just three minutes’ play at Musgrave Park. It was Foley’s sixth try in 39 Celtic League appearances.

Hooker Denis Fogarty, one of a number of regular reserves given the chance to impress Munster coach Declan Kidney, hands off Dragons flanker Jamie Ringer.

Dragons number 8 Rhys Oakley and Munster scrum half Tomas O’Leary fight for the ball at Musgrave Park.

Munster centre and former rugby league great Gary Connolly tries to give Dragons number 12 ceri Sweeney the slip.

Shannon clubman John O’Connor, a namesake of Wasps and Ireland flanker Johnny O’Connor, is held back by Richard Fussell of the Dragons.

Munster lock Mick O’Driscoll hands off Dragons winger Ben Breeze on a memorable 30-metre carry before the interval. O’Driscoll almost made it to the try line but was squeezed out at the right corner flag by Jamie Ringer.

Winger Ian Dowling, who was sin-binned rather harshly for a deliberate knock-on, 12 minutes into the second half, comes under pressure from Dragons duo Peter Sidoli (left) and Jamie Ringer (right). Munster’s win – their third of the season against Paul Turner’s Dragons side – sees them four points ahead of second-placed Leinster at the top of the table.
