Munster edged the Exeter Chiefs 9-7 in an intense and physical clash in the final round of pool matches in the Champions Cup.

A second Munster penalty reduced the deficit to just a single point, 7-6 at the break. The titanic battle continued in the second half, with neither side giving an inch. It took until the 72nd minute for the first points of the second half, with Munster slotting their third penalty of the match to sneak in front.
