The Cornish Pirates have been knocked out of the British and Irish Cup - by a last gasp try.

It came from holders Munster in the fourth minute of injury time in the quarter final.

The Pirates fly-half Aaron Penberthy had opened the scoring at the Mennaye after twelve minutes in a first half that saw the home side keeping their opponents at bay.

But after the break the defending champions made a come back, culminating with Ronan O'Mahoney breaking through to score the winner.

The game ended 10-9.
