Townsend: We Must Now Focus On Munster

The Warriors went down 22-17 to Leinster at the RDS in Dublin this evening, despite leading for most of the game and head coach Gregor Townsend was naturally disappointed after the full-time whistle.

He said: "A losing bonus point is not what we came here for and to have led for most of the game it is really disappointing to have only picked up a point. We have a big game on Friday against Munster and we need to pick ourselves up for that.

"We have to learn from defeats and learn from victories. I don't think the break helped our fluency in attack. I thought Josh Strauss was outstanding carrying the ball and Niko (Matawalu) was his usual self, trying to find holes.

I thought Ian Madigan was outstanding for Leinster tonight, he's an excellent runner, a very good goal kicker and he's young as well.

"There are a lot of positives but we can play much better and we have done. We'll have to be at our best to beat Munster on Friday."

Fly-half Duncan Weir added: "We're all really disappointed after the result but there are lots of positives to take from the game and we have to pick ourselves up for Munster.

"It is frustrating to have led for most of the match and to lose it at the end but there is not much between the top three teams in the league and we've still got it all to play for."
