The Racing 92 team also paid their own personal tribute during the warm-up, with the players and management wearing red t-shirts displaying Anthony Foley's name and the number eight on the back.
Former Munster out-half Ronan O'Gara, who won two Heineken Cup titles alongside Foley also donned the commemorative shirt and spoke about the significance of the gesture they're making today.
"It is a lovely colour (red)," he told Sky Sports. "It is a very strange day no doubt about it but a day where we just want ot concentrate on rugby with all the distractions about. We're just trying to concentrate on getting a performance out of us.
"Sometimes pride is more important than points, points are no good to us today but pride is a huge element in our make-up and my make-up. For me it's about performance."
