Munster finished their European campaign on a high with a 28-5 bonus point victory over Benetton Treviso in their ERCC Pool 4 clash at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo.
Neither side had any hope of making the knock-out stages of the tournament and were playing for pride only, but Munster coach Anthony Foley would have been pleased to see his side put in a solid performance.
Two tries from Ronan O'Mahony added to five-pointers from Dave Kilcoyne and Conor Murray secured the bonus point, with Ian Keatley converting all four for the visitors.
The Italian side's only score of the game came courtesy of a Marco Lazzaroni try.
Winger O'Mahony gave the visitors the perfect start with the opening try of the game just four minutes in.
Keatley slotted the conversion to make it 7-0.
Dave Kilcoyne crashed over from close range for the visitors' second of the game on the quarter hour mark, with Keatley again adding the conversion to put real daylight between the sides at 14-0.
But Munster failed to capitalise on their fine start and Treviso slowly gained a foothold in the game.
After Billy Holland was yellow-carded for as eries of infringements five minutes before the break, the home side took full advantage as flanker Lazzaroni finished off a fine forwards move to get Treviso back into the match.
But out-half James Ambrosini was wide with the conversion attempt, his third miss of the game, and the margin remained nine points at 14-5 at the break.
Captain CJ Stander thought he had Munster's third try immediately after the restart, but his effort was somewhat harshly ruled out for a knock-on upomn review.
But the visitors didn't have to wait long for another five-pointer as Conor Murray broke from the back of a line-out to touch down under the posts unopposed.
Keatley had the simplest of tasks to add the extras and was on target again on 66 minutes as Munster secured a bonus point after O'Mahony crossed for his second try of the day to seal a comprehensive 28-5 victory.
