Watch: Stander disrespects Exeter pack

Watch: CJ Stander undresses Exeter forward in front of 26,000 people

Munster Number 8 CJ Stander welcomed Exeter to Thomond Park in unusual fashion during an early Munster lineout maul drive.

The Irish loose forward wasn’t in a position to clear out Exeter’s lock Jonny Hill from interfering with the maul from the side so resorted to ripping off his jersey and throwing it away in front of a full house.

Munster booked their place in the last eight with a 9-7 victory over Exeter, whose chances of joining their opponents are over.

Joey Carbery kicked all of the home side’s points at Thomond Park, where Don Armand’s first-half try looked to have kept the Chiefs in with a sniff of reaching the quarter-finals. The match was an attritional clash with hotly contested at the set-piece and breakdown and Munster were too tough at home to beat.

Exeter needed a bonus-point victory over Munster to steal the top spot in the Pool and advance, and will now turn their focus back to the Premiership where the remain top of the ladder.

Munster must wait for Sunday’s matches to see if they will host a quarterfinal or travel on the road. In other Pool-deciding clashes, Edinburgh sealed a quarterfinal birth for themselves and Glasgow by beating Montpellier on Friday night, Racing secured their pool by beating Cardiff 46-33 in a high scoring affair while Ulster’s tight win over Leicester also secured a quarterfinal appearance.
