Keith Earls got the home side off to a good start, adding the opening try of the quarter-final inside the first five minutes.

The hosts made a dominant start to the second half, with Dave Kilcoyne and CJ Stander increasing Munster's lead less than five minutes after the restart.

Hosea Gear gave the French club some hope with their opening try of the game, but further efforts from Casey Laulala and Simon Zebo put the win beyond doubt for the Irish club, before Paul O'Connell added a sixth in the final minute of the match.

Munster will play either defending champions Toulon or Irish rivals Leinster in the last four.
