  • The game ends after the TMO rules Racing weren't over the line due to double movement. It just hasn't been their day has it. Munster win then and progress to the last eight! Next up we have Leicester v Toulouse from Welford Road. Stay right where you are.

  • BUTLER YELLOW! The Munster sub now goes off.

  • Racing finish with a surge to the line. Will they finish with a try?

  • MATADIGO YELLOW! Off the ball tackle from him.

  • News from elsewhere is that Saracens have won with a bonus point and earn themselves a home quarter-final. But here come Munster in Limerick as Laulala runs hard up to the 22. It leads to a penalty too so what will Keatley do here? He kicks to the corner...

  • Munster are ringing the changes with the mission accomplished.

  • Racing are giving everything until the last as they carry up into the home half with Cronje prominent. Orlandi is now also involved. Great stuff from the Top 14 side.

  • O'Mahony is given a rest by coach Penney as Butler comes on, with his first touch seeing him racing through a hole on halfway. This is pressure free rugby from Munster now as Zebo gets his hands on possession wide left on the 22. It's lost forward though.

  • Munster keep hold of possession in a patient style before a grubber on halfway runs too far for the chasing O'Callaghan. Maybe not the player Keatley wanted to see running after that one. Fourteen minutes or so to go then with Racing four scores down.

  • Oh but what a breakout from Munster as O'Donnell runs into the Racing half before a knock-on from his offload ends the attack. Here comes JJ Hanrahan for Earls.

  • Munster get the benefit of the doubt at scrum-time in their own 22 as Botha takes a few big deep breaths before jogging to the resulting line-out. Replacement Varley to's overcooked so the ball is back with Racing, who edge back towards the line.

  • Keatley's conversion hits the post so it remains 29-6.

  • ZEBO TRY! 29-6! Hat-trick try. Racing heads are down and Munster just used the hands to create room for wing on the left. Penny for Leinster's thoughts.

  • Happy faces aplenty around Thomond Park here as Munster are about to throw in on the Racing 22. It's now a surge of red on the French defensive line here.

  • KEATLEY CONVERSION! 24-6! Two more points.

  • ZEBO TRY! 22-6! That was almost outstanding from Keatley as he put in an amazing no-look grubber that just ran dead from the chasing Howlett. It didn't matter though as Jones countered soon after before Zebo grubbered himself and collected to score. What a try as he pounds the Munster badge on his chest. Leinster look to be going out.

  • Racing manage to get out of jail on their own line so back go Munster up to the Parisians' ten-metre. The pace of the game is good as Munster go for the jugular.

  • This is excellent rugby from Munster as they refuse to hang around in search of that fourth try. Jones was strong then down the right wing which leads to Racing hanging around the tackled player at the breakdown. This one is going to the corner.

  • Munster are in possession on their 22 but not for long as Keatley boots it down to Germain inside his own half. Munster must be patient as they look for that try.

  • Welcome back. By the way, the other game in this Pool sees Saracens currently 19-7 ahead against Edinburgh with about 45 minutes gone in Watford.
