Penny shines on debut, Murray returns and Connacht win in South Africa

It was a good weekend for the provinces in the Pro14, although Ulster suffered defeat in Wales.

AFTER A TWO week break, the Guinness Pro14 returned last weekend as Leinster, Munster and Connacht all resumed their respective campaigns with impressive victories, although Ulster suffered a heavy away defeat to Scarlets.

Leinster extended their lead at the top of Conference B with an emphatic seven-try victory over the Ospreys at the RDS, with a number of young players — including debutant Scott Penny — shining for Leo Cullen’s side.

In Parma, Conor Murray made his long-awaited comeback from a neck injury as he came off the bench to help Munster to a bonus-point win over Zebre in round nine, while Connacht stormed to all five points in their clash with the Kings in Port Elizabeth.
