Ospreys Premiership Select Head Coach, Dan Griffiths, said:

"There's been a few frustrations around the start of our British and Irish Cup campaign especially last time out against London Scottish. It was a tight match and there were a few opportunities for us to win it, but at the end of the day we do have to remember that there are a lot of 18 and 19 year old boys in the squad that are learning at the sharp end against professional teams and hopefully nights like those will become an important part of their rugby education. The boys are developing week on week and it's about gaining from these experiences to turn narrow losses into victories.

"The team have been playing good rugby but against London Scottish there were a few unnecessary penalties and mistakes in and around the set piece and with their kicking game they managed to squeeze us. So that's something we have been working on before we travel to Munster as we know as a tough, professional team they will challenge us in a similar way. Munster come into the game with one win and one loss so I'm sure they will be going all out to get the result to help them progress in the competition."
