MUNSTER prop Dave Kilcoyne says the Reds must learn from their mistakes last Sunday in Paris and make Sunday’s game against Ospreys ‘one for the fans.’ 

A bonus point win would keep faint hopes of making the knock out stages alive for Munster but the loosehead prop says that that two wins out of eight in Europe is not good enough for the province.

“I suppose I try and look at performance probably more than results. 

"You try and look at the process. Two out of eight isn't good.

"We have to find solutions now. We did that in the review meeting.”

Munster’s review session earlier in the week was not comfortable but necessary says the prop.

"We looked at the areas we need to be better in and we really need to target a big performance this weekend. 

"Without sounding cliched, it really is one for the fans, we got to show them just how much their support and the travelling support meant this weekend and show them how hungry we are to play for the province.”

Johann van Graan’s side will be targeting a few key areas where they felt they fell down last weekend. 

Discipline and finishing the last 15 minutes strongly will be the key areas he says.

"Just not finishing the game strong was one of the main ones. 

"Defence was quite positive, quite good. 

"Our attack was quite good, our set-piece, our scrum, the maul was good, it was just closing out the last 15 minutes of the game is an area we targetted at improvement, so that will be a certain work on this week and hopefully we won't have to be chasing a game by the last 10 minutes,” says Killer.
