A six-try 42-7 victory over Scarlets in round 10 of the URC saw Munster maintain momentum after the win over Crusaders at Páirc Uí Chaoimh at the start of February.

Munster are ninth in the table but now just three points off the top four with a home game against Zebre at Virgin Media Park coming up on Friday week with match tickets available here.

Munster face Harlequins this Friday at the Twickenham Stoop.

Following the game, Munster Head Coach Graham Rowntree said: “I’m pleased with the scoreline, but we were a bit disjointed. I wasn’t very happy at half time after a bright start. We lost our way a bit and we tried to be a bit too fancy in the second quarter. Half time was about sticking to the process and the plan, but we were a bit disjointed in the third quarter.

“The Scarlets were really tenacious in the defence of their goal line for huge periods. So much so, at times I wondered how many players we were playing against.

“This game was all about gaining momentum. We have a five-game run now. We have a friendly against Harlequins next week, which I asked for, and then we go into a huge block of three URC games which we need to use to get us up the league.

“We demonstrated last year what we can do on the road with our late run, so tonight was all about regaining that momentum. The scoreboard tonight belies the tenacity of the Scarlets.”
