Munster defeated Edinburgh for the fourth time this season with a dominant 30-3 victory in their RaboDirect PRO12 encounter at Musgrave Park.

Man of the match Ian Keatley kicked 20 points, with tries in the final quarter from CJ Stander and Mike Sherry capping off the home win.

A Piers Francis penalty gave Edinburgh an early lead and the Scottish team were only 6-3 behind at the break, but Keatley's right boot pushed the hosts out of sight in the Cork rain after the interval.

Munster opened the second half on the front foot and a third Keatley penalty gave them a six-point buffer after Willem Nel infringed in a scrum.

The showery conditions made for a scrappy encounter and each penalty kick was becoming increasingly important.

Munster's stand-in captain Jamie Coughlan was caught by a high tackle from Rees and Keatley slotted the resulting kick from a central position.

The province's direct style forced further mistakes from territory-starved Edinburgh and a fifth successful strike from Keatley had his side 15-3 ahead by the hour mark.

A sixth followed from the fly-half before a pinpoint Hanrahan pass sent Ivan Dineen scurrying up the right touchline. He kicked ahead for the supporting Stander, who went over unopposed for a 68th-minute converted try.

Munster, who did the double on Edinburgh in the Heineken Cup pool stages, crossed again with five minutes remaining - replacement hooker Sherry scrambling past Netani Talei after an assist from Stander.
