Glasgow forwards coach Shade Munro insists the Warriors can take positives from their 16-14 RaboDirect PRO12 defeat to Scarlets despite losing for the first time in the league since September.

The Warriors paid the price for their first-half indiscipline as Rob Harley and Ryan Wilson were both sent to the sin bin and Gareth Davies scored the home side’s only try.

And Munro admits the discipline will have to improve ahead of a crucial Heineken Cup clash at home to reigning champions Leinster.

He said: “We showed huge commitment and there was a huge amount of work from the team.

“We are a bit disappointed about the two yellow cards. We battled away for eight minutes with 13 men.

“We ended up with a losing bonus point which we are pretty happy with given the way the game went. We won the second half 6-0, there was fantastic endeavour.

“There are mixed emotions, we have to look at the discipline of the team.

“It [the Leinster game] promises to be a belter. The bonus point against the Scarlets keeps us in the top four. Now we have a massive game against Leinster.”
