Ireland centre Gordon D'Arcy is urging his Leinster team-mates to emulate Munster's European Cup heroics next season.
D’Arcy, whose side won the Celtic League this term, has watched their provincial rivals reach the final of Europe’s elite competition where they will face Toulouse.
Leinster failed reach the knock-out stages but the 28-year-old believes they are moving in the right direction following their league success.
"I think we are getting there. I think the personnel are the right personnel, I think we just need to be a little more...we just need to be a little bit cup smart and make it easier for ourselves when we are playing in the knock-out stages (of the European Cup),” he told www.irishrugby.ie.
"We just need to take a leaf out of Munster's book, it's not always the prettiest but you just do it back-to-back. We seem to do it in the Magners League because we won all our games in Wales (apart from the last one against the Dragons).
"In Europe we kind of shot ourselves in the foot, down in Toulouse, this, that and the other. I think we need to learn from our mistakes and stop saying each year that we are going to get smarter next year."
