Nenagh’s Ben Healy kicked 20 points as Munster had to produce late heroics again in the Guinness Pro 14 last night.

A late try from CJ Stander and subsequent conversion from Healy helped Munster to a 25-23 win over Edinburgh at Thomond Park.

Fellow Tipp man Tommy O’Donnell had to be replaced a half an hour into the game after picking up an injury.

They’re now two wins from two in Conference B and top the table at this early stage. In the same Conference, Connacht lost 29-7 to Cardiff in Wales

In Conference A, Champions Leinster beat Benetton 37-25 in Treviso to keep the defence of their title on track. And 14 men Ulster saw off Ospreys 24-12.
