Erasmus pleased with table topping Munster's 'solid' display

MUNSTER Director of Rugby Rassie Erasmus described his side’s seven-try demolition of Treviso as ‘satisfying’, a result which takes the province to the top of the Guinness Pro12 standings.

Munster blitzed the Italians, with winger Ronan O’Mahony and full-back Andrew Conway helping themselves to a brace of touchdowns, in a facile 46-3 success.

The win took Munster one point clear of second-placed Leinster in the Pro12 table.

Afterwards Erasmus said: “Solid is probably a good way of putting it, but there was still enough errors out there. But then again when you make so many changes and getting guys back and putting guys on and taking off a few guys, form and getting some guys back to match fitness I guess you’ll get some spells which isn’t too fluent, but overall I think satisfying.”

Munster face a demanding trip to Scotstoun to take on Glasgow Warriors in the Pro12 on Friday night, 7.35pm, before the focus switches to the Champions Cup.

Erasmus said: “Now we are going into big games, so it’s it the old clichés the next few games are so important now, especially we have Glasgow in the Pro12 before we go into a few games in Europe and Glasgow are one of European games in January as well. There is a lot of decision making around team selection now.

“Hopefully we get the boys involved in the Irish set up back injury free and we have to make clever decisions now around form and match fitness and obviously longevity over these next six, seven, eight or nine weeks over Christmas and into the New Year.”
