Fans of Top 14 side Clermont Auvergne have endeared themselves to rugby fans everywhere with their tribute to the late Anthony Foley.

The Yellow Army supporters group posted a call-out on their Facebook page to their fans to bring any Munster jerseys, flags and scarves to the Stade Marcel Michelin yesterday for their encounter with Ian Madigan's Bordeaux-Begles. A game they won 49-33.

Their reaction was overwhelming with a huge number of fans answering a call.

They posted a number of pictures onto their Twitter account of the tribute.

Munster and Clermont have locked horns on many occasions in Europe but the respect they have for each other is clearly unwavering.
