Jean stars in Munster win

Springbok centre Jean de Villiers scored a try in Munster’s 23-17 victory over the Scarlets.

Munster suffered an early setback when the Scarlets shot to a 7-0 lead after two minutes, but this score was cancelled when De Villiers touched down four minutes later.

The Scarlets managed to wrestle back the initiative in the 37th minute but it was the hosts that scored the next try through No 8 James Coughlan. Two second-half penalties by Paul Warwick confirmed the result of this Celtic League fixture.

Munster have moved to fourth on the league table.
