Munster overcame an eight-point half-time deficit to ensure RaboDirect Pro12 minnows Zebre finished their campaign without a single victory.

The Italian side looked on course to end a disastrous season with a flourish when they went in at the interval 22-14 ahead.

However, Munster, who themselves have an endured a forgettable few months in the PRO12, hit back in the second half and BJ Botha's 65th-minute try, which was converted by Ian Keatley, gave the visitors the points.

Sinoti Sinoti and Giovanbattista Venditti scored first-half tries for Zebre, while Johne Murphy and Paddy Butler replied for Munster.
