Scrum-half Duncan Williams said that the training camp for a week in Lanzarote has set Munster up for a big finish to the season.

Anthony Foley and his squad spent a week in the Canaries during the break in games and Williams said that it worked out very well, with some hard training and then some good team-bonding exercises.

"We have few lads who haven't played that much but with the internationals being away now they're coming into the team now so it was getting them to gel and get them into the group and get them up and running, so it was good to have the week over there and get in amongst ourselves," he said.

"It wasn't exactly a warm weather camp but what we lacked in weather, we made up in fun. We trained hard over there but we had a bit of fun as well. It was just about getting the group together and having that bit of fun."

The disappointment of not reaching the Champions Cup quarter-finals has been put aside and the focus now is on the Pro12.

"We want to win every competition. Unfortunately we're out of Europe so we're focusing now on the Pro12 and manage to make the final and win that.

"We have an important block of three or four games which hopefully we will get a bit of separation in the table. Obviously at the end of the four weeks we want to be at the top of the table. It was important that we got together and outlined what we are trying to do," added the 28-year old.
