It was billed as an emotional day for Munster rugby and it certainly lived up to expectations.

The province produced one of their all-time great performances to overcome Glasgow Warriors 38-17 at Thomond Park and, despite being reduced to 14 men, ran out bonus point winners over their Pool 1 rivals.

Ahead of the game, the number 8 was retired and CJ Stander instead lined out as number 24 in respect to the late Anthony Foley.

Passion, commitment, determination and aggression were all on show this afternoon in a particularly poignant game in Europe.

Fans wave flags and sing the Fields of Athenry ahead of today's game.

Supporters line up to sign a book of condolence before kick-off.
