Priestland's out to pressurise Munster

WALES star Rhys Priestland believes the Scarlets will need to recreate the intensity levels from their stunning victory over Northampton when they host European heavyweights Munster tomorrow.

Priestland and company have given themselves every opportunity of reaching the Heineken Cup quarter-finals following Pool One wins against Saints and Castres.

Their bonus-point success at Franklin's Gardens, a triumph inspired by fly-half Priestland's tactical control, means back-to-back appointments with twice-tournament winners Munster have more importance.

"Our young guys have no fear and we want to give it our best shot," Priestland said.

"It is going to take a performance of a similar standing to what we did in Northampton. We put the pressure on them."
