WATCH: O’Mahony says set piece will be key on Saturday

Munster captain, Peter O’Mahony is under no illusion of the size of the task that his side face this Saturday when travelling to Dublin to take on the European Champions Leinster. O’Mahony has soldiered with many of these Leinster players and is keenly aware of the importance of maintaining focus and retaining primary possession on Saturday.

“Its difficult to break down defences. Coaches and guys spend hours on video trying to break down, get a metre or two here and there, its difficult. But the ones you look for are the little mistakes that guys tend to make so, there almost the ones you’re counting on.”

“It’s massive every game. Set-piece is huge in the game nowadays but even more important in semi-finals, against a team with the calibre that Leinster have, to get a solid base. Its difficult because its an area they go hard after.”

The full interview with O’Mahony can be found on our YouTube channel.
