Leinster had to work hard to get a win over arch rivals Munster on Saturday with a 27-25 win in a match that went down to the wire.
Munster showed great character fighting back from 24-13 against the defending champions. They had a chance to take the win but and intercept by Toner on Leinster line gave the champions the chance to hold on to the win.
Six tries in the match and end to end stuff which would have kept both supporters on the edge off the living room couches.
It was Munster that open the scoring with Conway going over before Leinster hit back with tries from Cian Healy, Garry Ringrose and James Lowe saw Leinster to pull clear.
Earls and Conway gave hope to Munster in the second half but they just could not pull it through at the end.
This means they still have some work to do in Conference B before they can book a place in the semi-finals.
