Ian Keatley kicked 20 points to steer Munster past fellow play-off hopefuls Glasgow Warriors 35-29 in the RaboDirect PRO12.

Tries from Luke O'Dea and Peter O'Mahony put Munster in the ascendancy at Musgrave Park - the hosts led 18-6 at the end of a largely forgettable first half.

Two terrific tries from Stuart Hogg in a five-minute spell got Glasgow firing but Keatley's right boot had the biggest say and a Conor Murray try made the game safe for the hosts.

But Hogg's persistence paid off when he completed his hat-trick in injury-time, with Duncan Weir's conversion securing what could prove to be a vital losing bonus point for the Warriors.
