Keith Earls crosses for Munster's crucial second try in their Guinness Pro14 play-off win over Edinburgh at Thomond Park on Saturday

MUNSTER captain Peter O’Mahony paid tribute to departing full-back Simon Zebo in the wake of the province’s hard fought 20-16 Guinness Pro14 play-off win over Edinburgh at Thomond Park.

The win helped Munster secure a mouth-watering semi-final showdown with Irish rivals Leinster at the RDS on Saturday, May 19 at 3.15pm.

Full-back Zebo, who departs Munster for French Top 14 side Racing 92 created the home side’s crucial second try for winger Keith Earls with a moment of individual magic.

After a 72nd minute penalty from out-half JJ Hanrahan had increased Munster’s one-point lead at 17-16 to four points, captain Peter O'Mahony's lineout steal at the death ended the Scots' hopes of a first semi-final appearance.
