Leinster coach Leo Cullen was pleased that those recently on the injured list came through unscathed in the Pro14 victory over Munster on Saturday evening.

James Lowe scored twice for the victors with the rest of the points coming from the boot of Ross Byrne and a penalty try in the 30-22 success at the Aviva Stadium.

Much then for Cullen to ponder ahead of their Champions Cup opener against Wasps on Friday next at the RDS.

"I picked a team today with next week in mind so it was good to get the win and to see a lot of guys come through relatively unscathed," remarked the coach afterwards to RTÉ Sport.

"Jack McGrath started his first game of the season and got through 40 minutes. We always planned to make that change at the break.

"Dan (Leavy) had only played ten minutes up to now, so getting through 80 minutes was good.

"Sean (O'Brien) had his first start in a long, long time and getting through 60 minutes will benefit him.

"All told a lot of guys put their hand up today, so plenty of food for thought for us as coaches. It is a quick turnaround. Hopefully we'll get a big crowd into the RDS next Friday."

Cullen did, however, feel that referee Ben Whitehouse and his officials were somewhat controversial when it came to some of the scrummaging calls at the Aviva.

"We knew it would be a good contest in the scrum but today I thought the ref was hard on the defensive team," he added.

"Michael Bent has been scrummaging really well for us. I'll have to have  a look back at some of the clips, to see what the looseheads are doing for both teams and why it's creating that spin.

"Sometimes the attacking team can take that step out and the defensive team are the ones that get penalised.

"When Munster were going for the scrums on our lines we were the ones getting penalised. I'll have a look back on it with John Fogarty and we'll submit our feedback as we normally would."
