Dragons 16-20 Munster

Munster prevailed over Dragons' stiff challenge to overcome a three point deficit and secure a 16-20 win at the Rodney Parade stadium in Newport during the 2016-17 Pro12 clash on Saturday.

Replacement centre Cian Bohane's timely 55th minute converted try came to the Irish side's rescue as Rassie Erasmus' men bagged a crucial victory.

Lock Jean Kleyn (19) was the only other try scorer for Musnter after he scored the opening try of the match. Fly-half
Tyler Bleyendaal managed to successfully convert both the tries in addition to scoring two penalties.

Wing Hallam Amos (31) was the lone try scorer for the hosts. Fly-half Angus O'Brien successfully converted Amos' try apart from scoring three penalties which helped the hosts to take a slender three point lead in the 53rd minute of the match which lasted only for two minutes.

Despite the win, Munster has slipped one position in the points table to Leinster who bagged a bonus-point win against Edinburgh later the same day.
