Emerging unscathed from their qualifying pool, Munster faced the unenviable prospect of playing both quarter-final and semi-final games on foreign soils.
They triumphed against all odds, defeating Gloucester and Saracens to set up a mouth-watering final clash with perennial favourites, Toulouse who they defeated in a truly memorable encounter.
