Video highlights, action shots and the post-match reaction of Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus as Munster suffered their first defeat of the new season, going down 37-10 to Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun.

The defeat, which was Munster’s first away defeat of the Guinness PRO14 since Leinster at the Aviva last October, sees them slip to second – behind Glasgow – in the Conference A standings.

Reflecting on the game, Erasmus feels the squad, particularly his younger charges, will learn a lot from the manner of the defeat.

“We made a decision not to being a few of our major players, but to bring the young boys and see how they react.  It is good to see the young boys in a situation like this, you always learn a lot.  Glasgow were really good on the night and to score four tries to two is testament to how well they played. Well done to them, we were not in the game.

“The only area where we competed was in the scrum. Apart from that, we were really outplayed on the night.”
