Glasgow Warriors came within a point from United Rugby Championship leaders Ulster after beating Munster 13-11 under Danny Wilson, their head coach.

Wilson was positive for Covid-19, and Nigel Carolan, the attack coach, took over as hosts.

Warriors took a 10-to-1 lead after Scott Cummings converted try in the second half.

Jean Kleyn's point brought Munster to within 2 points. Ben Healy, however, converted the goal wide.

Leinster is also one point away from the summit but still have a game over Ulster or Glasgow. Munster's loss of bonus point puts them within four points from fourth-placed Edinburgh.

Weir was successful in his attempt to send a penalty early, but it was too late. He did so after Munster's Simon Zebo had tackled him high.

Rufus McLean was killed in a head accident, and Ben Healy scored the only goal for the hosts.

Neil Cronin tried to box kick, but Cummings charged him down. He stumbled over the line and got the ball down. Weir converted.

Cronin made Weir's kick illegally in the second half, but the ball was out of play.

Glasgow's Fraser Brown was sentenced to sin for a deliberate knock on and Healy's penalty attempt at halfway drifted wide.

With his third successful kick, Weir increased Warriors' advantage.

After a scrum that had collapsed, Healy brought Munster to seven. Kleyn quickly made his way to the visitors and got them to within striking distance.

Healy's kick, however, was too wide for the near post.
