"We win together and we lose together" - Munster boss Johann van Graan

Munster head-coach Johann van Graan has refused to place the blame for last night's 13-3 defeat to Leinster on his out-half JJ Hanrahan. 

Hanrahan missed two crucial penalties either side of the hour as Munster suffered a third successive loss to their rivals in the semi-finals of the Guinness PRO14.

Van Graan says they were big moments in the game but he says they had other missed chances in the match at the Aviva Stadium.

“Yeah, look, they were crucial,” the South African admitted after the game. “We had limited opportunities in a semi-final and we didn't convert our opportunities.

"But, you know, we as a group, we win together and we lose together. We'll take those penalties as a group.

“I thought we built a lot of pressure between the 50th and 65th minute, and then we didn't convert those chances. Leinster went down the other side of the pitch and went up 13-3. We had an opportunity on the 77th minute to get that maul try and they stopped it.”

While Leinster head-coach Leo Cullen told Eir Sport that he was just pleased to see his team qualify for the decider.

“This is our third game of the season. For some of the guys there, it's their second game of the season. We're through to the next round. It was pretty ugly stuff, an ugly contest but we're through.

“Munster probably missed a couple of chances they will say in the game but it is what it is. We're thought and it's on to the next challenge. We'll watch with great interest how Edinburgh and Ulster go.”
