On the day he became an Irish citizen, CJ Stander’s final act as a Munster player at Thomond Park was a successful Captain’s Challenge that kept his chances of picking up a trophy alive.

His compatriot Keynan Knox scored the try to edge a rollercoaster affair, but Cardiff staged a grand finale and earned a penalty under the home side’s posts after a 23-phase epic deep into injury-time.
