Watch: Munster Bench’s Jubilant Celebrations At The End Of Dramatic Win V Toulon

The Munster bench were feeling every last moment of Saturday’s nail-biting Champions Cup victory over Toulon at Thomond Park.

The province booked their place in the last four of the European competition with a nerve-shredding 20-19 win against the Top 14 club, sealed by Andrew Conway’s try five minutes from time – a try that was duly converted by Ian Keatley.

The camera fixed on the Munster bench captured a wide range of emotions during those final moments in Limerick, from the elation of Conway’s try, to the vital turnover right at the death, right up to the enormous relief felt at the  final whistle, the sound that confirmed Munster’s place in the Champions Cup last four.

The look of joy on Simon Zebo’s face is particularly heartwarming, as the full-back was forced off in the first half through in what looks set to be his final European match at Thomond.

Johann van Graan and his side will now be eagerly awaiting Sunday’s all-French clash between Clermont and Racing, to find out who stands between them and a place in this season’s final.
