Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac bemoaned his side’s high error count after they suffered a 17-6 loss to Munster in Limerick on Friday.

While the Welsh region have improved on defence, they are now battling with ball in hand. In their clash against Munster, several passes went astra, balls were dropped in contact and they failed gather kick-offs.

“It was a night where we made it difficult for ourselves,” Pivac told the South Wales Evening Post.

“I thought it was a pretty competitive game, but unforced errors hurt us; dropping kick-offs, little knock-ons here and there.

“We knew it was going to be difficult going to Munster, we expected an arm wrestle and at half-time I thought that’s exactly how it panned out – at 8-6 down we were definitely in the game.

“But there were too many unforced errors by us and it cost us.

“We had three of four attacking opportunities, but once again errors let us down.

“Hopefully, those sort of things we’d like to think we can get out of our game quickly.”
