While the action didn't make for attractive viewing for Munster supporters who made the journey to Bordeaux for Sunday's Champions Cup semi-final against Racing 92, that didn't dampen their spirits, it didn't quieten their voices.

Runners-up in 2016, the French giants will meet unbeaten Leinster in the decider in Bilbao in three weeks' time, while Munster return to domestic matters after suffering a stinging sixth European semi-final defeat since 2009.

First blood went to Racing with the opening try inside five minutes through Teddy Thomas with the conversion being landed from the sideline to send them 7-0 ahead.

Munster upped the pace in the second half, with wing Simon Zebo, hooker Rhys Marshall and fullback Andrew Conway all crossing within 15 minutes, but it was too little, too late from the visitors, who simply could not cope with Racing's intensity in attack and defence in the first half.

"They get into a rhythm and they are hard to stop with the players that they have".

Munster hit back with a penalty but Thomas touched down in nearly identical position just minutes later with the added points putting them 14-3 clear after the opening quarter.

Thomas then sealed his hat-trick after a number of strong carries from his forwards gave him space and he stepped through a few poor attempted tackles to score.

While this was his last Champions Cup appearance for the province, there is still plenty of work to do for Zebo and Munster on the domestic front as they remain in the hunt for the Pro 14 trophy.

Maxime Machenaud Maxime got the third try, three conversions and two penalties.

Munster were penalised for holding on and Racing kicked the three points.

The Racing-bound Zebo lifted spirits with a high-quality finish past two defenders, equalling Anthony Foley's Munster record of 23 European Cup tries, as Johann van Graan's men took advantage of Marc Andreu's sin-binning for successive offsides.
