That’s all from me! Warriors dominated throughout but a late Munster fight back saw the visitors score two late tries to claim the win. Thanks for following.

Full-time: Warriors 26-28 Munster

80 mins: CONVERSION – Keatley adds the extras to wrap up the game.

80 mins: TRY Munster- James Hart makes sure there is to be no upset as he bundles over the tryline at the death.

76 mins: Ian Keatley adds the extras.

75 mins: TRY Munster – The Irish giants have snatched a late try through Mike Sherry.

70 mins: Just ten minutes to go. The tempo has slowed as both sides struggle to keep possession. This is going to go down to the wire.

57 mins: CONVERSION – Bleyendaal slots the extras. Game on.

56 mins: TRY Munster – Warriors weren’t clinical enough and Munster made them pay as they burst upfield and score through Williams – his second of the game.

53 mins: Munster are still being forced to defend as both sides ring the changes.

50 mins: Warriors are on Munster’s tryline! Hammond tries to force his way over but the visitors are thwarting the danger..

46 mins: Munster are trying to bully their way forward here and causing Worcester a lot of pressure. Can they protect their lead?

Well not a bad pre-season friendly. There’s been plenty of tries and I’m sure we can expect the same in the second half. Don’t go anywhere..

Half-time: Warriors 26-14 Munster

40 mins: CONVERSION – Olver on target again to make it 26-14 to Warriors.

40 mins: TRY Warriors! The hosts reply almost immediately as Perry Humphreys collects a bouncing ball and jets through to score unopposed.

38 mins: CONVERSION – Bleyendaal adds the extras.

37 mins: TRY Munster – The Irish side reply through a Duncan Williams score, following great strength from Gerbrandt Grobbler.

36 mins: The half-packed stadium are being treated here. Warriors look strong in defence and have flair going forward.

31 mins: CONVERSION – Olver chips over the extra two to give his side a 12-point advantage.

30 mins: TRY Warriors! This time it’s Wynand Olivier who races under the posts after shaking off tackles.

25 mins: CONVERSION – Olver adds the extras. 12-7 Worcester.

24 mins: TRY Warriors! Dean Hammond latches on to a loose Billy Holland pass and races under the posts to gift Warriors the lead. No one was going to catch him!

22 mins: It’s turning into an end-to-end affair here as both teams look to exploit their oppositions defence with rapid breaks.

19 mins: Olver’s conversion drifts wide leaving the game 7-5 to Munster.

18 mins: TRY Warriors! New boy Sam Olver pops over in the far right corner to get Worcester on the scoreboard.

17 mins: But Worcester make a break which results in a lineout deep in Munster’s 22.

15 mins: Munster are looking lethal in their attacking play. Warriors are really having to put in a shift to defend their lines here.

5 mins: CONVERSION – Tyler Bleyendaal addes the extras. 0-7 Munster.

4 mins: TRY Munster – Rhys Marshall offloads to Tommy O’Donnell who storms through for the early score.
