There were a lot of positives for Munster to take from Saturday's emotional demolition of Glasgow on Saturday, one of which is the continued return to form of Peter O'Mahony.
The rampaging flanker missed almost 12 months after injuring his knee in last year's World Cup, but after a carefully managed comeback, O'Mahony looks close to his old self.
With Ireland about to embark on a four-test November series - which includes two clashes against the seemingly unbeatable All Blacks - Joe Schmidt will be delighted that O'Mahony is now an option to play some part in the autumn internationals.
In Saturday's outstanding team effort, O'Mahony lead from the front as always, with his performance catching the eye of French publication Midi Olympique.
The newspaper has picked the flanker in their team of the week alongside Rory Best and Ruan Pienaar. Munster could easily have had seven or eight players included but on this occasion, only O'Mahony makes the cut after a weekend that was full of displays.
The performances of the French sides were much improved, with Castres and Clermont looking extremely impressive in their heavy wins against Northampton and Bordeaux respectively.
