HT 27-14
Fri 29 April 19:35 Musgrave Park Ref: Sam Grove-White United Rugby Championship

Cabango rips through the Munster defence and almost breaks clear. He feeds Priestland on his outside, who passes back to Hill on the inside. A sensational basketball-style pass almost finds Cabango but the wing can't keep hold of possession. 42-21 #URC

Good double hit from Jarrod Evans and James Botham to force a knock on from Healy. | Evans a Botham yn cyfuno yn yr amddiffyn i orfodi'r sgrym. 27-14 #URC

Jarrod Evans slices through and finds Lloyd Williams on his inside. He offloads to Navidi to keep the attack alive, but O'Donoghue manages to force a knock-on. I'm tired just watching this! | Mae'n waith blinedig i wylio heno! Williams ac Evans yn cyfuno y tro hwn 10-14 #URC

Two huge opportunities for Munster are thwarted by massive moments in defence from the backs, firstly from Jarrod Evans and followed by Owen Lane, Hallam Amos and Max Llewellyn. | Y cefnwyr yn arwain y ffordd yn yr amddiffyn. 7-14 #URC



A wonder offload from Amos puts Lane within inches of the whitewash. Cardiff once again with plenty of tempo and front foot ball and a long pass from Evans is enough to put Lee-Lo in for the score. What a game! | Chwip o gem yng Nghorc! Lee-Lo yn croesi y tro hwn! 7-14 #URC


Cabango and Ratti go close with plenty of zip in the attack as Cardiff hammer on the door. Dacey goes for pick-up but is held up, leading to a goal-line drop-out. | Caerdydd yn agos gyda digon o dempo yn yr ymosod, ond Dacey yn cael ei ddal lan. 7-7 #URC

Lovely play from Hallam Amos to fix the defence before putting Seb in space in the corner, and the lock does enough to power over. Evans with a stunning conversion. Gwaith Hallam Amos yn y 22 sydd yn creu lle i Davies groesi yn y gornel. 0-7 #URC
