What a performance from Munster.
Munster have secured a bonus-point win in their rescheduled clash with Racing 92, sending them to the top of their pool and putting them in pole position for the knockout stages of the competition.
Simon Zebo opened the scoring with his 50th try in the corner thanks to some great work from the forwards. Munster continued to dominate before Stander grabbed a brilliant individual effort on the 36 minute mark.
Just minutes later Munster were in for their third try, just before half-time sending them in to the dressing room with a 25-0 lead. Racing tried tried to fight back in the second-half but Munster would just too strong.
Niall Scannell grabbed Munster’s fourth try with 55 minutes gone, securing the bonus-point for the southern province. Racing grabbed a late try but it was always going to be Munster’s day in Paris. Foley would be proud.
