Watch: 'Are you questioning my team-mates?' - Peter O'Mahony stands up for Munster in testy post-match exchange

Munster were beaten 23-17 by Leinster at the Aviva Stadium today and their captain Peter O'Mahony wasn't happy to have his side's efforts questioned in a post-match interview.

The Ireland star was involved in a physical back row battle, with Joe Schmidt in attendance to survey his options ahead of the November internationals.

O'Mahony spoke to TG4 after Munster's six-point defeat, with former Leinster prop Reggie Corrigan tasked with asking the questions.

A testy exchange followed towards the end of the interview, with O'Mahony giving Corrigan an intense stare after being asked whether his team could have given more.

Reggie Corrigan: 'What do you think about the intensity from your team-mates out there? Was there enough in the game? Did they give enough do you think?'

Peter O'Mahony: 'What do you mean? Are you questioning my team-mates?'

Reggie Corrigan: 'I'm talking about the intensity that came from the team, did you feel they were giving as much as they could possibly give out there?'

Peter O'Mahony: 'Yes, 100%.'

Peter O'Mahony: 'No, 100% not.'
