15 An­drew Con­way

5 Ea­ger to trig­ger some­thing go­ing for­ward and kept giv­ing as the day is long and got his late try. But it was too late to af­fect the out­come.

14 Keith Earls

5 Not vis­i­ble for most of match and gave away a cheap penalty by div­ing in. Was com­ing in­side to get ball but it was no this day.

13 Sam Arnold

4 Brought his usual phys­i­cal­ity and bumped his way for­ward a num­ber of times. But de­fen­sive ly the cen­tre and wing com­bi­na­tions failed.

12 Rory Scan­nell

4 A few loose passes in the first half and de­fen­sive ly out of shape early in the match when Teddy Thomas was on fire. Looked frus­trated.

11 Alex Woot­ton

4 Again a vic­tim of the shell shocked de­fence early in the match. Came across to fast to be beaten eas­ily twice by Thomas.

10 Ian Keat­ley

4 Drop-goal miss em­blem­atic of a rough day for the out half. Couldn’ t get any­thing to move and kicked to Y an nick N yang a too of­ten.

9 Conor Mur­ray

5 Ap­peared in flashes rather than con­sis­tently in­flu­enc­ing.Missed Leone N aka raw a early on and im­proved sec­ond half but off his best form.

1 Dave Kil­coyne

4 Turned overt heb all in a nearly sc rum but no real im­pact in the loose as the French side won the break­down in the im­por­tant firstt hird.

2 Rory Scan­nell

4 Again ball car­ries min­i­mal and his throws to at­tack­ing line outs missed a cou­ple of times. Left the game on 42 min­utes.

3 Stephen Archer

4 Won the first sc rum for Mun­ster but again strug­gled for con­trol at the break­down and could not make any im­pact.

4 Jean Kleyn

6 Putin a big shift even al­though he wasn’ t go­ing far. Got on the ball and made the car­ries in a dif­fi­cult match for all.

5 Billy Hol­land

5 Couldn’ t lead the way he likes to. The Mun­ster for­wards were just chop-tack led into in­ef­fec­tual it ye spe­cially in the first half

6 Peter O’Ma­hony

5 Was held up for at ryon the hour. Played an in­dus­tri­ous more than an in­spired match when Mun­ster needed in­spi­ra­tion.

7 Jack O’Donoghue

5 Will­ing and was on the ball for his time on the pitch. But again out played by an ex­cel­lent French back row.

8 CJ Stander

4 Didn’ t make his trade­mark car­ries into con­tact. His op­po­site num­ber N yang a was one of Rac­ing’ sb est play­ers. Lit­tle im­pact.
