2013–14 Heineken Cup[edit]

On 19 January, Munster secured a home quarter-final in the knock-out stages of the Heineken cup after a 38-6 win against Edinburgh at Thomond Park.[24][25][26] They faced Toulouse in the quarter-finals on 5 April.[27][28] Munster scored six tries to beat Toulouse 43-23 and reach the semi-finals.[29] A Keith Earls's try put Munster into a 10-point lead before two Luke McAlister penalties made it 13-9 at half time. Tries from Dave Kilcoyne and CJ Stander looked to have sealed the victory before Toulouse relied with a try from Hosea Gear. Further tries from Casey Laulala, Simon Zebo and Paul O'Connell made it a comfortable win in the end for Munster. CJ Stander, who replaced the injured Peter O'Mahony in the first-half was named Man of the Match. [30][31][32][33][34][35][36][37]

On 27 April in the semi-final against Toulon at the Stade Vélodrome, Munster lost 24-16.[38][39][40] Munster came from 18-9 down at half-time to score the game's only try through Simon Zebo who went over in the corner.[41][42] Jonny Wilkinson scored 21 points for Toulon.[43][44][45][46][47]
