Munster's RaboDirect PRO12 play-off ambitions suffered a further hit at Thomond Park in Limerick as they were held to a 13-13 draw by defending champions the Ospreys.

Ireland fly-half Ronan O'Gara matched Matthew Morgan's two penalties for a 6-6 scoreline at the end of a first half full of endeavour and hard running.

The hosts then moved ahead thanks to Damien Varley's 44th-minute try, only for the Ospreys to respond with a converted effort from Jonathan Thomas.

Steve Tandy's men touched down while Munster prop Stephen Archer was in the sin-bin, but there were no further scoring chances in an energy-sapping final half hour.

The result, on the back of a thumping defeat in Treviso, leaves Munster in sixth place with five rounds remaining.

The Ospreys stay six points ahead of them and the Scarlets, who currently hold the last semi-final spot, are a further point in front.
