Leaders Munster claimed their first Celtic League win at the Arms Park in a scrappy tie between two depleted teams.

With both sides missing 11 players, attacking chances were few as the Blues' Lee Thomas and Munster's Paul Burke shared six first-half penalties.

Burke added two more kicks, then Jeremy Manning extended the lead with another.

Munster held out when prop Federico Pucciariello was sin-binned. Late on, Marc Stcherbina's fine converted try for the Blues set up an exciting end.

The capital side could not follow it up, though, and had to be content with a losing bonus point.
