Munster Player Ratings
Rassie Erasmus' side won 10-7 in Cork21:58 Saturday 8 April 2017, 21:58 8 Apr 2017
Munster beat Glasgow 10-7 in a low scoring but highly entertaining match in Cork.
We rate Rassie Erasmus' men after their three point win:
Andrew Conway - 8
Lively throughout in attack and defence. Brave in the air and took a brilliant Garryowen early on. Playing with confidence at the moment.
Darren Sweetnam - 7
Played his part in a fine defensive effort. Got involved whenever the ball came out his way.
Francis Saili - 7
Mixed display from the centre. Powerful running mixed in with some poor decisions - particularly kicking ahead when on a three on two overlap in the second half.
Jaco Taute - 8
Imposing throughout and always looking to run over somebody.
Ronan O'Mahony - 7
Like Sweetnam, waited for the ball to come his way. Limited opportunities but did well in possession.
Tyler Bleyendaal - N/A
Started the game as he usually does but had to be replaced after taking an early knock.
Duncan Williams - 8
Kept the defence honest and passed crisply throughout. Ran at gaps whenever they presented themselves.

James Cronin - 7
Powered over for an early try which set the tone for his performance before being replaced early in the second half.
Rhys Marshall - 7
Operated the line out efficiently and got stuck in defensively.
Stephen Archer - 7
Solid in the scrum and in defence.
Dave O'Callaghan - 7
Workmanlike display and embraced the physical nature of the game.
Billy Holland - 8
Industrious display in the engine room. Enjoyed the physical battle and won the odd turnover. Led by example.
Jean Deysel - 7
Powerful display from the debutant. Set up the first try with a barnstorming run. Emptied the tank before being replaced. Good addition to the squad.
Conor Oliver - 9
Gritty display from the openside. Popped up all over the park. Valuable turnover in the dying minutes. One for the future.

Jack O'Donoghue - 7
Got stuck in from the off and embraced the physical challenge.
Bench - 8
The replacements were the reason Munster saw out this game. Scannell replaced Bleyendaal effortlessly. The big guns at the end got them over the line.
