Foley demands consistency

Date published: December 29 2014

Munster head coach Anthony Foley wants his side to carry their recent good form into 2015 when they travel to Connacht on New Year’s Day.

Victory over Leinster last weekend saw them pick up the home and away double over their Irish rivals, which left Foley pleased afterwards.

Munster are third in the PRO12, behind Glasgow and Ospreys but a positive result in Galway could change that as the coach looks to build.

“It was the manner in which they played the game, the way we took the result,” he told the Irish Independent following the 28-13 victory.

“Many teams, if they have a few bad results, the injuries we have, they can go into their shell.

“It was the opposite for the boys, they came out and went after the game from minute one.

“The one thing I’ll hit them with is that I want it consistently from them.

“We want more, you want to be selfish around those performances. When they play with that intensity, physicality…that’s what I like to see from Munster teams, ruthless.

“We want it again next week. It will be hard to come by, but that’s the standard.”
