Munster Celeb v Toulouse

Scored: Dave Kilcoyne, Paul O'Connell and Simon Zebo

Munster head coach Rob Penney was delighted with his team's performance after they overcame Toulouse 47-23 in their Heineken Cup quarter-final.

Six tries were scored by the men in red as Keith Earls, Dave Kilcoyne, CJ Stander, Casey Laulala, Simon Zebo and Paul O'Connell all went over.

And understandably the win left Penney thrilled.

"It was great to get the win but the performance was outstanding. It's not a secret how dangerous Toulouse are and great credit to the lads both sides of the ball. They were terrific and you need to be against a side like that," Penney said.

"They all had to play big today. If we had any weaknesses they would be exposed and we talked all week about everyone having the best game they could have in the Munster jersey.

"You could look along 1 to 15 and the guys who came on...they were so determined to do well for each other and the spirit is there and is going to see this organisation well for a period of time."

He added: "I thought there were opportunities to get another couple of scores. They probably had a couple as well but to be up into the wind and playing the way we were was a great joy when we came in at half-time.

"We just encouraged them to keep going, do what they were doing. There wasn't a lot of need to change anything. It was about bringing the same excitement we had in the first half into the second half and they did that certainly with a couple of nice tries."
