Pienaar blasts Sarries after Munster comeback
London
November 28, 1999

Saracens coach Francois Pienaar was furious after his side let victory slip against Munster in the Heineken Cup.
Saracens, who are now bottom of their pool led 21-9 at the interval and seemed to be cruising towards victory
before an inspired second-half comeback by the Irish champions.
"The first 10 minutes of the second half we looked like a primary school team," blasted Pienaar. "We've no complaints; we didn't deserve to win. We just gifted them the points, and there's no excuse for that. We got an 11-point lead midway through the second half but we still let the game slip out of the bag. We've got a good squad, and I can't understand it."
Munster hooker Keith Wood was rightly delighted with a performance which put the Cork side top of pool 4, but he denied dirty tactics by the visitors in an occasionally bad-tempered game.
"It's an aggressive game, but there was nothing nasty there. It's rugby, not tiddlywinks," he said. "It's great to get one over the old enemy. The whole country was down after the World Cup, and it's nice to get them smiling again."
