For Moseley a match without points but not quite a match without point. Not quite.
Indeed despite neither crossing the Munster line nor splitting their posts, Kevin Maggs' men came off the Billesley Common pitch having achieved their two main goals.
Firstly getting through the afternoon without any injuries, something they managed without incident as they look ahead to bigger, more important matches such as the one with London Scottish on Boxing Day.
And secondly getting through the game without actually qualifying for the quarter-finals of the British & Irish Cup.
Not that they would admit it publicly, of course, but the sighs of relief were palpable from some quarters at Moseley as this reverse formally ended their chances of reaching the last eight.
There is little love for this competition between the decision makers' ears at Mose, particularly not after last season's odyssey cost them nearly five figures and presented them with an unwanted away trip to one of the cup's powerhouses six days before the relegation play-offs started.
That fate will not befall them this term so in that respect - Pool A, job done.
But they should not be overtly happy about it, there were many people at Billesley today who had every right to feel miffed with their team's performance having parted with money to witness it.
Not that it lacked effort, indeed there have been Championship matches this term when the paying public had more right to demand their money back.
But the desperation that keeps ball-carriers upright for a split-second longer and compels scrambling defenders to arrive in position a little earlier, was not present.
There were, however, still some commendable individual displays, not least from prop partners Anton ODonnell and Colin Quigley who acquitted themselves well at scrum time and in the case of the latter also in the loose.
But from the moment skipper Adam Caves turned his back on three points to practise his team's set piece early in the game, the die was cast.
Munster knew then that Moseley were not that interested in winning and seemed to grow in confidence once their half-backs figured out the vagaries of the Billesley slope.
And once the visitors were 10-0 ahead at half time, courtesy of a try by prop David Kilcoyne and five kicked points from Scott Deasy, Mose were never going to be too fussed about traipsing up the hill in the second half.
When they did try they lacked the composure of their previous two matches and either fumbled or became isolated and that enabled Munster to hammer their way to three more tries through Christy Condon, Paddy Butler and Peter Borlase to secure the try bonus that might just take the Irishmen through.
Thankfully Moseley aren't blessed with that opportunity.
