Munster boss Anthony Foley admitted that he had mixed emotions following his side's draw with Scarlets at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday.

A late JJ Hanrahan try, which was converted by Ian Keatley secured Munster the 25-25 result.

This followed a Felix Jones five-pointer after Munster were trailing 25-13 behind with only four minutes to go before full-time.

"You don't know whether to laugh or cry," said Foley.

"I thought at one stage we conceded 10 points far too easily. We'd gone ahead, and worked hard to get ahead, and obviously we had a lot of possession in the game.

"To fall behind so quickly, and to fall nine, to 12 points behind, with the clock running out, was hard to take."

Despite his side's late heroics, Foley insists there is plenty of room for improvement ahead of their next match which is at home against Glasgow on Saturday.

"We just get on now for next week, with the view that, you know, in this block we still haven't been beaten," he added.

"I think the boys are showing that character.

"We've a fortnight of hard work, but we'll look at Glasgow now, and make sure we're focussed and ready, and see what way the boys turn up tomorrow after a very physical hit-out today.

"Glasgow and ourselves went toe to toe up there as well, and we ended up losing by three points in a game that possibly, you know, we left behind us."
