Simon Zebo crowned his 100th appearance for his native province with a stunning solo finish at the Sportsground.
It didn't matter a jot, however, as Connacht annihilated their southern neighbours 35-14, joining Leinster atop the Pro12 standings whilst pushing Munster to the brink of failure to qualify for the Champions Cup next season.
Spirits were higher in Munster during training midweek, however. Seaking to Munster Rugby's official website, 26-year-old Zebo was reflecting on his club career to date, stating what an honour it was to see his name atop the likes of Anthony Horgan and John Kelly in Munster's try-scoring record books - then with 53 to his name, now 54.
The Cork man was asked to recount his favourite score of the lot, and presumably after some considerable deliberation, opted for one particular Thomond Park beauty against French opposition.

Unsurprisingly, he opted for a try from a game in which he scored three of them - the second of a hat-trick versus Racing Metro back in 2013, which guaranteed Munster a crucial bonus point.
And what a finish it was.
Zebo ran in another beauty on his 100th appearance versus Connacht, slicing the Westerners apart with some strong running after clever play by Johnny Holland and Jack O'Donoghue.
