Ciaran Frawley is reflecting on Leinster's last ditch retrieval at the Sportsground on Saturday.

Leinster's inter-pro match winner is praising his side's determination after they overcame Connacht with a last play of the game try on Saturday.

Ciaran Frawley got on the end of a five phase attack that swept from their own 22 to the Westerner's try line after Leinster stole what would have been a match winning lineout for Connacht.

Former Buccanner's second row, Darragh Murray started for Connacht and was instrumental in the Westerner's first try.

It was his lineout steal that led to David Hawkshaw's well fashioned opener in the first half.

Ultimately, it was a lost lineout with the clock in the red that led to their defeat.

The final score was 22-24.

The result leaves Frawley's team clear at the top of the URC standings.

He says while his side were flawed in many respects, he's delighted they found a way to win again:

Meanwhile, Munster will be without forwards Peter O'Mahony and Jean Kleyn for Saturday's Champions Cup opener against Bayonne at Thomond Park because of injury.
