Keith Earls, stand up and take a bow, you gorgeous human!

The Irish winger has been a man on a mission during this afternoon's European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-final between Munster and Edinburgh at Murrayfield.

After an opportune early try from the Moyross man put the visitors into a 7-0 lead early on, the Scottish side scrambled. A try from Scottish international Chris Dean quickly restored parity after concerted Edinburgh pressure, and the home side hit the front through a Jaco van der Walt penalty before half-time.

The South African and Joey Carbery replacement Tyler Bleyendaal swapped penalties after the restart but Munster needed something and it was their talisman that delivered when needed.

After wonderful play by Conor Murray and Chris Farrell, the 31-year-old found space and made his dart for the line, grounding the ball in the nick of time in the corner.

The conversion put Munster into a 17-13 lead and Johaan van Graan's side survived the inevitable late onslaught to secure their spot in the last four after what was a phenomenal defensive performance.

Later on, Leinster will take on Ulster in an All-Irish quarterfinal matchup at the Aviva.
