Only three minutes later Vunivalu latched onto a Munster cut-out pass, beating two defenders to touch down for his 17th try this season.After halftime, Koroibete scored his second when he steamrolled over Knights winger Brendan Elliott to score in the corner.The teams then traded tries before Mamo sailed past Munster to score and set the game up for an exciting finish.
