Video: Munster snatch late victory with drop goal from JJ Hanrahan in final play

The cock in the red and Munster are behind but like the teams of old, their tradition of coming from the depths of despair to victory lives on through the feet of JJ Hanrahan.

He may not have started the game but he certainly won the game for Munster today as the clock struck red, the ball is passed back to him before he dropped the ball to floor and leathered it right between the posts in a game Munster really should not have been losing.

A poor performance throughout the game lead to the 16-15 score line in favour of Benetton coming into the final play of the game but a moment of brilliance from the Kerry native.

The game finished Benetton 16-18 Munster and they now sit comfortable top of their conference in the Guinness Pro 14, 15 points clear of Connaught.
