Leinster were dumped out of the Guinness Pro 12 by Scarlets on Friday night after a torrid performance.

Matters were made worse when Pat Lam bowed out with a big fat loss as Connacht failed to qualify for the 2017/18 Champions Cup after a 21-15 defeat to Northampton.

So it was up to Munster, as it always is.

Playing the Ospreys, they were holding a five-point lead with 20 minutes left on the clock...and then this happened.

And he wasn't the only one impressed.

With thanks to the stunning try, we'll get to see Simon Zebo play once more this league season, when Munster face Scarlets in the PRO12 Final next Saturday at the Aviva Stadium after overcoming the Ospreys 23-3.
