All the highlights from the second round of the new Pro14 season

There were bonus point wins for Leinster and Munster, while Kieran Keane recorded his first victory as Connacht manager.

MUNSTER MADE IT two bonus point wins from two on Saturday evening, as they made sure the Cheetahs endured a difficult first experience of northern hemisphere rugby at Thomond Park.

Man of the Match Alex Wootton bagged four tries as Rassie Erasmus’s side stormed to a 32-10 win which places them top of Conference A.

Elsewhere Leinster secured a bonus point win of their own. Leo Cullen’s charges had to battle hard but were rewarded come the end of 80 minutes with a deserving 37-9 win over Cardiff Blues, which leaves them second in Conference B.

Meanwhile Kieran Keane recorded his first win as Connacht boss on Saturday. His side defeated the Southern Kings 32-10, securing their bonus point win with ten minutes remaining thanks to Darragh Leader.

Ulster maintained their unbeaten start to the new Pro14 campaign, but did so against a spirited display from Treviso, winning 14-21 despite a lacklustre second-half performance.
