  • FULL TIME: MUNSTER 38-6 EDINBURGH

    80
  • That's it! Munster win convincingly to secure a home quarter-final. James Coughlan is named man of the match. Thanks for joining us, cheers!

    80
  • CONVERSION, KEATLEY. 38-6. Excellent kick from Keatley

    78
  • TRY, MUNSTER, JONES. 36-6. Felix Jones gets his name on the scoreboard as Munster score try number six. After another big maul, the ball goes wide to the space on the opposite touchline. Zebo unselfishly puts his full-back over.

    76
  • YELLOW CARD, EDINBURGH, CROSS. The penalty count was getting out of hand. Cross pays the price after he sacks the maul.

    74
  • It's carnage behind the tryline as a chip over the top ends in some volleyball amongst the Edinburgh defenders behind the sticks. We come back for a penalty anyway, and Munster set up another line-out.

    72
  • Edinburgh have hardly had the ball in the last 15 minutes. It's almost like a training game now as Munster fling it about with gay abandon.

    70
  • The conversion is wide...

    67
  • TRY, MUNSTER, ZEBO. 31-6. That's the easiest try Zebo will ever score. The pack does all the work, earning a 5m score then taking it to the line. Zebo just needs to catch the pop up and dive over in the corner from a metre out.

    65
  • It's one-way traffic at Thomond Park. Munster are doing what they do best - turning up the heat for the last quarter.

    60
  • CONVERSION, KEATLEY. 26-6. This could get ugly...

    58
  • TRY, MUNSTER, O'MAHONY. 24-6. That's the fourth try and the home quarter-final! Great work from the home captain, who runs into a gaggle of tacklers after the line-out but shows great power to push through.

    57
  • Line-out to Munster inside the Edinburgh 22. Tom Brown is lucky not to see yellow for intentionally palming the ball out under pressure.

    56
  • JJ Hanrahan comes on for James Downey and moves to fly-half with Ian Keatley shifting to inside centre. Joaquin Dominguez is on in the Edinburgh midfield.

    55
  • Edinburgh are back to 15 men but all the momentum is with Munster. The men in red have a real spring in their step as they seek the fourth try that will secure a home quarter-final. The result looks settled, Edinburgh won't come back from here.

    53
  • Scrum penalty against Munster! No one expected that. Tonks clears.

    50
  • Laidlaw gives possession away cheaply with a poor box kick. Zebo immediately starts the counter. Downey makes good ground as the red jerseys pour forward. A little chip ahead from Laulala throws a cat amongst the pigeons. There are three Edingurgh defenders to clean up but they are driven over their line. 5m scrum to Munster.

    48
  • CONVERSION, KEATLEY. 19-6. Three tries down, one to go. All of Toulouse is cheering for Edinburgh right now...I'm not sure it'll help though.

    46
  • TRY, MUNSTER, MURRAY. 17-6. Super try from Munster! Tommy O'Donnell makes the break, Dave Kilcoyne is stopped just short but Conor Murray arrives on the scene, spots a gap and dives over from short range.

    44
  • A bit of kicking early on as both sides look for field position. A blistering attack from deep from Keatley and Murphy sets Munster up in the Edinburgh half...
