Munster coach Johann van Graan says they can't afford to waste time thinking about coaching staff departures with a Guinness Pro14 semi-final against Leinster coming up. 

The province last week confirmed that forwards coach Jerry Flannery and attack coach Felix Jones rejected new deals and will depart at the end of the season. 

"It's very sad to see Jerry and Felix leaving," the South African told RTÉ Sport ahead of Saturday's RDS clash. 

"The news broke last week and we dealt with it last week as a squad. I’m sad and disappointed that they are leaving but I respect their decisions.

"This is professional sport, we are here to do a job. We are a coaching team that are planning for a semi-final.  The players just want to get out and play.

"We were always going to bring in another coach and now we are looking for one or two more.

"The process is ongoing along with Munster and the IRFU. We are looking to fill those positions but first up is the semi-final."

Leinster must regroup after Saturday's 20-10 loss to Saracens in the Heineken Champions Cup final but Van Graan is braced for a backlash. 

"I expect nothing short of their best," he said.
