Carbery converted all four Munster tries and added a penalty in Munster’s 31-24 win.
It capped an all-round performance from Carbery who collected man of the match honours in Galway, pipping Connacht centre Tom Farrell who pressed his claims for a Six Nations campaign with an impressive performance in a losing side.

Munster sit atop of Conference A in the Guinness Pro14 with nine wins from 13 matches, while rivals Leinster top Conference B with 11 wins from 13 matches. Munster’s win propelled them to the top after Glasgow lost to Treviso.
Johann Van Graan’s side will now turn their attention to Champions Cup pool play, with a key away fixture against Gloucester next weekend.
