If there was any doubt about how much Munster are reeling from being knocked out of the Champions Cup before the final pool game then Peter O'Mahony has certainly tried his best to put it into words.
The Munster captain was speaking on Off The Ball on Wednesday evening when he described the days following the 33-10 defeat to Saracens on Saturday as 'the toughest few days of my career'.
It hurts. It will probably hurt for a long time but you have to get on with it. There's a job to be done this week. There's a carrot there that we have to put it right this week.
It's been the toughest few days of my career, definitely. There's a lot of inward looking and asking yourself questions and looking at videos.
Understandably, despite the disappointment, O'Mahony continued to back coach Anthony Foley as doubts continue to be raised about his ability to take Munster back to the pinnacle of European rugby.
As Axel said afterwards, these days will stand to us. Axel was there before himself and hopefully we will get things right.
