Stander rues mistakes in Munster defeat


Munster captain CJ Stander says individual mistakes were to blame for Sunday’s 24-7 Pro 12 defeat to Leinster at Thomond Park.

Anthony Foley’s side drop to sixth in the Pro12 table after a third consecutive league defeat, and fifth in all competitions.

Munster went into the break 10-7 down after Robin Copeland crossed for a converted try to peg back Leinster’s lead, following a converted Isa Nacewa try and an Ian Madigan penalty.

The home side had 60% of the possession but still ended up losing the match by 17 points as Jack McGrath and Zane Kirchner went over in the second half, with Madigan again adding the extras.

“We were getting into the right areas but we couldn’t keep the ball in our hands. I think we outplayed them for a while but didn’t capitalise on that,” Stander said.

“We are playing good rugby with the ball at stages but we need to fix those mistakes.

“The match was a sell-out, and the crowd are disappointed, but we are even more disappointed.”

Stander, whose Munster side travel to Ravenhill to take on Ulster on Saturday, says the squad are determined to work hard to try and turn their recent woeful run of form around.

“We know what we want to do – we want to fix the mistakes we are making week in and week out, but we haven’t done that,” he said.

“It’s going to be a disappointing season if we go on like this – we need to start afresh and work on that in the New Year.”
