Johann van Graan has expressed delight at his Munster's team performance against Scarlets in light of the "horrendous" weather conditions.

The province overcame their Welsh opponents 29-10 in the Guinness Pro14 fixture at Thomond Park, earning a bonus point in the process.

Munster head coach Van Graan told RTÉ Sport that they had to contend with the strong wind during the first half.

"Very happy with the win, very happy with that bonus point. We worked so hard for it," he said.

"The conditions were horrendous. We lost the toss and we were forced to play against the wind for the first half and I thought we did that really well.

"We came out after half-time, got ahead, they came back to 15-10 and after that we closed it out very well.

"I was really happy with the performance out there."

The South African coach was particularly pleased with how his team dealt with the challenge that the conditions posed.

"In these games, you've got to adapt, you've got to keep your discipline and your composure and I think we did that really well tonight," he said.

The victory stretches the gap between second-placed Munster and third-placed Scarlets in Conference B of the Pro14, an outcome that pleased Van Graan.

He said: "We knew that if the Scarlets beat us here that they are right with us and Edinburgh would almost have a two game advantage.

"I believe we've got that down to two points now and we've opened up a bit of a gap between ourselves and Scarlets."
