Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Zebre

by Jim O'Connor, 2020-10-22

Let's be grateful for small mercies first. At least we have rugby to watch this lockdown.

Yes it's Zebre at home on a weekend of a Six Nations championship. But it's still something to pass an evening and chat about with friends on WhatsApp even if we can't stand on a terrace together for the moment.

Match Preview: Benetton Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2020-10-09

Leinster got their season off to a solid start last week with a professional if dreary win over the Dragons in the RDS. For any neutrals though they were lucky if they switched stations over to the Ulster - Benetton game instead. That match was an absolute cracker, especially the breathless first half where both teams just seemed to run everything.

Well that was grim.

Normally when a season ends with a massively disappointing defeat, you have the summer to get it out of the system. But two weeks later...here we are.

Happy new season everybody!

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Saracens

by Jim O'Connor, 2020-09-18

This is the game!

This is the game Leinster have been waiting for ever since they lost last year's final to Saracens. The game they knew they'd more than likely have to win in order to win back the trophy. What they couldn't have imagined then was how drastically Saracens circumstances would have changed in the intervening sixteen months since that day in Newcastle.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2020-09-11

Leinster take on Ulster tomorrow looking to become the first team in tournament history to win it three times on the bounce.

It would be a fitting reward for a team who've been unbeaten throughout the whole season and they're twelve point favourites with the bookies. However it's fair to say next week's Heineken Cup quarter-final against Saracens is taking precedence in Leinster's minds as they've opted to leave skipper Johnny Sexton plus Luke McGrath and Will Connors on the bench this week. So they could be open to accusations of disrespecting the tournament and you can be damn sure Ulster will be using it for motivation.
