Rob Penney's men needed a bonus-point win at Thomond Park in order to leapfrog their Irish rivals into the second best runners-up spot. Racing were forced to play without Antoine Battut for 74 minutes in Limerick, the flanker earning an early red card for a knee to the head.

A trio of first-half tries from Conor Murray, Zebo and topped off by Mike Sherry's first Heineken Cup score, handed Munster a deserved 17-6 interval lead, while Ian Keatley - deputising for the suspended Ronan O'Gara, kicked over two conversions as full-back Gaetan Germain landed a brace of penalties for the visitors.
