Patience is new Munster's greatest virtue

You can say what you like when you win.

That is probably why Conor Murray felt the freedom to express his anger at his targeting by Glasgow Warriors.

It wasn't the head or neck bangs with which he took umbrage. It was what the scrum-half interpreted as the dangerous hits to his standing leg.

It is about time the players stood up publicly for what they believe privately.

Moving on, Munster will be utterly committed to the points necessary to guarantee a home quarter-final.

Surely, Racing won't buck the French trend for being better away from home than they were in Paris.

Rassie Erasmus's men just have to stick to their simple and effective game plan.

They have to set down a solid set-piece platform to play from and win the contact in the gain line.

Patience has become their greatest virtue.

They know they haven't enough game-breakers to cut the game open.

It is a grinding down process in which their one-out runners have to make headway.

Munster shouldn't have too much trouble in getting what they want.
