Munster Have To Settle For Losing Bonus

Two late penalties, after Munster had edged in front, gave Racing Metro a 22-17 win at Stade de France

Simon Zebo's try converted by Ian Keatley had Munster in front 16-17 with five minutes to go but Olly Barkley then kicked the home side ahead and they added another just before full time.

Earlier a Ronan O'Gara penalty and his conversion of Sean Dougal's 15th minute try had Munster leading Racing 10-3 with 28th minutes gone at the Stade de France. Then a mistake in the backline handed the home side the opportunity to level. And Barkley then kicked a penalty before the break to leave the home side 13-10 in front at the break.
