Joe Schmidt says that Leinster will not celebrate their win over Exeter unless they make it out of the pool stage of the Heineken Cup.

Joe Schmidt has said that Leinster will not be celebrating yesterday's Heineken Cup win until they know today's results.

The reigning cup holders' victory over Exeter is good enough to put them through to the quarter-final stage if Munster are beaten by Racing Metro later this afternoon.

Leinster's head coach told Sky Sports News: "We are where we are. We can't control anything else that happens. There certainly won't be any celebrating from us because we know that Munster have a real target.

"That is one of the advantages of playing on the Sunday as they know clearly what they have to chase. They'll clearly work really hard and make sure that they get as close to that as possible against Racing.

"I thought we were really good for it, and the quality of our tries was first rate, but I have a lot of respect for Exeter as well."

Munster need to a bonus-point win to progress from their pool.
