Munster Head Coach Johann Van Grann has reflected on his sides bonus-point win over the Southern Kings in Port Elizabeth over the weekend.
Tries from Mike Haley, Alby Mathewson, Fineen Wycherley and Arno Botha secured the full five points on offer.
“You can’t underestimate the travel. We had a bus trip from Limerick to Dublin, flew to Doha, flew to Johannesburg, and flew to Port Elizabeth and we had six days to acclimatise South African rugby temperatures.”
A more concerning aspect of the game was the injury sustained by Munster back-row Chris Cloete which puts him out of next weeks clash against the Cheetahs and could mean a lengthy spell on the sideline:
“It looks like a serious injury. He is going to the hospital with our medial team, hopefully, we’ll have a bit more information later tonight or tomorrow. I just spoke to him and it seems like there is definitely something wrong.”
“Next week will be even more difficult against a class side and playing at altitude against the Cheetahs.”
Munster will face the Cheetahs on Friday evening in Bloemfontein.
Kick-off is at 17:15 (Irish time) at Toyota Stadium.
