Captain Paul O’Connell wants Munster to find more consistency despite winning a fourth straight Heineken Cup Pool game when they accounted for the Scarlets on a 19-13 scoreline in Limerick on Sunday.

“It’s satisfying winning games. That’s it and that’s all you’ve got to do. You can play all the fabulous rugby in the world, but if you’re not winning it’s not much good to anyone,” said O’Connell.

 “We’re doing a lot of things really well. We’ve just got to do them really well for 80 minutes more consistently. If we can do that we can be a really good side in this competition.”

Late errors almost cost Munster as O’Connell acknowledged afterwards.

He said, “It was plain to see that we did a lot of very good things, but we were our own worst enemy at times.

“You’ve got to make those tackles and we’ve got to exit our own half of the pitch a little bit better at times, particularly when we went 19-6 ahead.

“You look at what Castres did to Northampton and Northampton nearly won the tournament last season, so those are our two games coming up and they’re going to be two very tough games.”
