Watch: Joey Carbery's sublime pass

Watch: Joey Carbery pulls out sublime behind-the-back pass during surgical second-half performance

Munster’s outhalf Joey Carbery put on a surgical second-half performance against Gloucester at Thomond Park, slicing up the visitors by scoring one try and setting up two more in the 36-22 victory. It was touches like this that had the home crowd in raptures all afternoon, en route to a thirteenth straight home win.

It was a career day for Carbery on the European stage, showing the class that had him earmarked as Sexton’s successor from an early age and earning man-of-the-match. He was lethal from close range, picking holes in the Gloucester line almost at will and finished with a personal haul of 16 points.

Carbery and Munster were however aided in their attacking performance after Gloucester were reduced to 14-men around the half-hour mark when Danny Cipriani was red carded for making contact with the head during a tackle, which took away the contest.

The decision brought the ire of fans and players alike with Saracens No 8 Billy Vunipola tweeting ‘another game ruined’.

They had already spent 10 minutes down to 14-men when Tom Savage was yellow carded in the 16th minute.

Munster will be disappointed with a final 20 minutes which saw the hosts receive two yellow cards themselves, allowing the visitors earn some respectability on the scoreboard by scoring the final two tries to close a 36-10 lead down to 36-22 by the final whistle.
