Munster and Warriors Finish Level in Glasgow

October 26, 2007 12:00 am By Munster Rugby

A second half Lifeimi Mafi try, created by Rua Tipoki earned Munster a share of the spoils (11-11)against Glasgow Warriors in Firhill.

Munster trailed 8-6 at the break and went further behind when Peter Stringer was penalised for back chat and Park’s penalty stretched Glasgow’s advantage  However, Rua Tipoki danced his way past several defenders befor being collared but found Lifeimi Mafi in support for an equalising try after 69 minutes. 

Warwick missed the conversion and was replaced shortly after by Jeremy Manning whose first contribution almost earned his side the lead, his 30 metre penalty attempt from wide on the left drifting just wide of the left upright. 

Even though they were reduced to 14 men, with Mafi binned for infringement at ruck time, Munster enjoyed the better of the latter exchanges and although Parks had the opportunity to retrieve the lead with a long range penalty, it was the visitors who had the field position to snatch a late victory.

Their best chances fell to Manning who had two drop-goal attempts but both went well wide.
