Munster flanker Alan Quinlan says they will not be underestimating Saracens in Sunday's European Cup semi-final at the Ricoh Arena.
After overcoming Gloucester at Kingsholm, Munster were set to play the Ospreys in the last four but the Welsh region were knocked out by Sarries in a shock result.
"The perception is there that because Saracens were seen as weaker than Ospreys, their win in the quarter-final was the best result for us," the blindside flanker told the Irish Examiner.
"We've too much experience as a group to buy into anything like that. We've been around too long to underestimate any team and they showed in that win what they're capable of.
"Look, we can say all the right things, say all the nice things to talk the opposition up but the simple fact of the matter is that they are a quality side and they'll be going to Coventry just as determined as we are.
"This is a cup-type situation, 80 minutes of hard rugby, we won't underestimate them in any way."
