    12/14/2014 4:30:02 PM
    Clermont 18-9 Munster

    12/14/2014 4:37:48 PM
    Clermont 18-9 Munster[ouch]
    That is one heck of a double-tap on Paul O'Connell. Benjamin Kayser and O'Connell's old pal Jamie Cudmore smash the Munster man back but Munster still have the ball and Zebo is just hauled down when it looked like space would open up.
    12/14/2014 4:39:51 PM

    They get the driving maul going - but great defence from Munster and Clermont knock it on; Munster nab it. Keatley clears but only to his 22. 
    12/14/2014 4:52:26 PM
    Clermont 21-9 Munster
    From the line out Clermont rumble into the Munster 22. The ball comes back to Lopez who dinks it over the top for Fofana to chase - Fofana is taken out , the home fans think he was taken out off the ball but Nigel Owens wants to look at the maul area where we see O'Connell being taken out around the neck so it is a penalty to Munster. 
    12/14/2014 4:55:42 PM
    Clermont 21-9 Munster
    Clermont are making far too many unforced errors - this time Zac Guildford guilty of trying to force the off-load and ends up knocking the ball on. Scrum to Munster.
    12/14/2014 4:57:31 PM
    Clermont 21-9 Munster
    The ball is not even in and Clermont win the penalty as BJ Botha is pinged for not staying on his feet. 
    12/14/2014 4:58:59 PM
    Clermont 26-16 Munster
