The visitors went 28-9 down at Stade Marcel-Michelin but two tries late on in the game saw Munster pull off an incredible 31-39 win to go third in Pool B.

Clermont dominated the first quarter of the match with three converted tries plus a penalty try but only scored three more points throughout the entire game as Munster rolled them over in an historic win for the Irish province.

Fans and pundits have taken to social media to praise Munster’s performance while there were some funny incidents from try scorer Alivereti Raka and some incredible scrummaging early on in the contest. Full match highlights are also available below as well as the very best reaction on social media.
