After Stade scored from a penalty after Munster infringed after the kick-off, Morne Steyn gave the visitors the lead.

A driving maul allowed Munster respond through a Mike Sherry try, which Ian Keatley failed to convert. Steyn regained the lead for Stade but Munster led at the break thanks to a moment of magic from Keith Earls.

He somehow sniffed a chance and made a terrific break before sliding in under the posts. Watch below:

Munster began the second half as they ended the first as Ian Keatley deft kick over the top was gathered by Simon Zebo who galloped in for a try.

Watch below:

Stade did respond through a Jono Rosso try after Ronan O'Mahony was sinbinned but man-of-the match CJ Stander scored the bonus point try in the 67th minute to reassert Munster's dominance as they led 26-13.
