Treviso scored five tries as they put a huge dent in Munster’s slim RaboDirect PRO12 hopes, at the Stadio di Monigo on Sunday afternoon.
Treviso 34-10 Munster
Rob Penney’s men were never able to get off the ground and could do little to prevent their Italian counterparts from running out historic 34-10 winners. Alberto Di Bernardo led the way for the home side, as the out-half kicked three conversions and two penalties. However, it was the concession of five tries that finished the Irish province and left them with little chance of reaching the playoffs.
The home side’s first came after just three minutes as Ludovico Nitoglia crossed over, and two more followed before the break as Filippo Giusti and Gideon La Grange got on the scoresheet. Munster reduced the lead with a penalty try after 49 minutes but that proved to be their last score of the afternoon.
Fabio Semenzato’s try secured the bonus point just after the hour mark, and Giulio Toniolatti made a bad day for Iris rugby even worse when he scored try number five just before the finish.
