Munster’s Ronan O’Gara says Scarlets deserved their win

Munster’s fly half Ronan O’Gara has admitted that Heineken Cup champions Munster couldn’t quite match the desire of the Llanelli Scarlets in last night’s Heineken Cup quarter final at Stradey Park. He told the BBC: “Llanelli brought a great intensity to the game, and they had a hunger we couldn’t match. There were also crucial scores before half-time,” he added, referring to Munster going 17 points down before the break.

“We tried hard, but our execution was poor at times. We turned over the ball, and we weren’t as sharp as we could have been. It is going to be a long few days now.The great thing about this team is we win and lose together. We will have to reassess now, and if we are made of stern stuff we will come back. If we are not, then we won’t.”

It is understandable that Munster didn’t quite have the desire of Llanelli, what with them being perhaps the last of the great European teams not to win the title. The smart money is on Llanelli right now…
