Leading from 9: Tobias Botes

Treviso stunned Magners League leaders Munster on Sunday with a gutsy 19-18 win over the Irish giants being recorded at Stadio Monigo.

The Italian side had already beaten the likes of the Scarlets, Connacht and Dragons on home soil and they held a 6-3 half-time lead here as South African fly-half Willem De Waal kicked two penalties to one from Paul Warwick for the Irish province.

De Waal quickly added another penalty on the resumption before converting flanker Gonzalo Padro's try, scored while Munster had Damien Varley and Wian du Preez in the sin bin, to put them firmly in command at 16-3.

But Munster came roaring back as Warwick kicked his second penalty and captain Doug Howlett went over.

However, De Waal added his fourth penalty, meaning that James Coughlan's late try was not enough for the visitors.

The scorers:

For Treviso:
Try: Padro'
Con: De Waal
Pen: De Waal 4

For Munster:
Tries: Howlett, Coughlan
Con: Warwick
Pen: Warwick 2
