Doug Howlett scored the only try

Munster handed new head coach Rob Penney his first Thomond Park win as they notched a 19-6 victory over Benetton Treviso.

Team captain Doug Howlett dashed through for a fifth minute try, in response to Alberto di Bernado's opening penalty, and Munster foraged into a 16-3 lead by the break.

But that proved to be the only try of the game with Ian Keatley, who finished with 14 points, and di Bernardo kicking a penalty apiece in the second half.
