    Quinlan on Foley: "and a coach I hold in high regard"

    Having slept on it Alan has repeated his criticism of Munster but not repeated his criticism that the players had 'no spirit' , 'no heart' , 'no passion' and 'no desire' - now stating that they are not 'good enough'.

    He has also now added mitigating factors

    "I know there are mitigating factors behind this, too, that the sporting landscape has shifted since I played, that French, and English, clubs have much deeper pockets than they used to have then, and than we have now.

    Plus, the structure of the Champions Cup is not as favourable to Ireland's provinces in the way the Heineken Cup was. Even non-sporting issues, like the recession, have deeply hurt the club because it isn't as easy for fans to fork out for tickets like they once could.

    and he has now praised Foley as a coach. (hopefully not upsetting too many on here).

    That's better Alan - but a word of apology to the players would not have gone amiss, perhaps later in the week?
