- Munster have kicked more penalty goals than any other side in the tournament this season (13).
"One of my favourite Osprey moments would have to be in 2006 when we faced Sale. We scored a try after 20 odd phases into injury time. I had a kick to win it and I got it! That was the moment that kickstarted my Ospreys journey" – @hookjameshook #OurBloodIsBlack #ItsInOurDNA pic.twitter.com/4tq75wHM00

Munster may have failed to qualify for the Heineken Champions Cup quarter-finals but they finished this season’s campaign in style with a bonus-point victory over winless Ospreys in Pool 4.
Ospreys initially took a six-point lead thanks to a couple of Luke Price penalties but the hosts took control after the half-hour mark.
CJ Stander firstly burrowed over the line for the game’s opening try, with JJ Hanrahan converting. Right on the half-time whistle, Stephen Archer touched down at the base of the right-hand post, giving Hanrahan a simple task with the boot.
An early injury to wing Andrew Conway was the only fly in the ointment for the hosts – and Ireland – ahead of the Six Nations.
Conor Murray crossed for Munster’s third on 47 minutes and after Rory Scannell inexplicably dropped the ball when touching down what should have been a fourth try, Munster did claim a further five points through youngster Craig Casey’s first ever try for the club.
European debutant Jack O’Sullivan and Calvin Nash almost added a fifth, but that honour in the end went to CJ Stander, getting his second of the game after peeling off the back of a surging scrum.
