The Munster players and their loyal faithful at Thomond Park honoured Anthony Foley's memory with a stirring 38-17 victory over a shell-shocked Glasgow Warriors side.

Immediately after Munster's bonus-point win, achieved despite being a man light for 62 minutes after Keith Earls was sent off, the home squad linked arms in a large circle on the pitch and sang another rendition of 'Stand Up And Fight'.

A still-packed crowd, which numbered 25,600 during the match, joined in the chorus and then applauded the Munster squad, who were accompanied by Foley's sons Tony and Dan, on a lap of honour.

It was a fitting end to a truly emotionally-charged today that epitomised everything that is good about Munster rugby and their followers.
