Paul O’Connell and his fellow Lions led Magners League champions Munster to a title party with a stylish 36-10 bonus-point victory over the Ospreys on Friday night.

Lions skipper O’Connell played 62 minutes before receiving a rapturous reception from the Thomond Park faithful as he left the field unscathed as Munster bounced back from recent defeats to Leinster and Cardiff Blues.

Now the giant lock links up with the Lions on Monday ahead of their May 24 departure date to South Africa.

Lions flanker David Wallace touched down twice – in either half – along with Denis Leamy and Paul Warwick, before replacement Anthony Horgan sealed maximum points on his final appearance for the Red Army.

James Hook scored all the visitors’ points as the Ospreys lost for the second time in Limerick in as many months following their embarrassing 43-9 Heineken Cup defeat last month.
