Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Cardiff Blues

by Jim O'Connor, 2020-11-21

The only good thing about Monday night rugby is that it gives you a new appreciation for Sunday rugby as in "well, at least it's not Monday".

The abandonment of the Friday night slot still grates though and you genuinely wonder about the mental acuity of the TV companies driving this change. Plenty of Pro rugby fans look forward to a game on TV on Friday evening as they relax into their weekend. Even if their team isn't playing, they can still watch one of their rival teams.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2020-11-15

After two wins on the road, Leinster are back at home for another (sigh) Monday night game as they host Edinburgh.

Leinster earned an impressive win last Monday against a Glasgow team stacked with international backs. They also got another four try bonus point to maintain their record of obtaining maximum points from all four fixtures this season. A number of youngsters stood out like Harry Byrne, Scott Penny and Tommy O'Brien. A special mention needs to go to Jimmy O'Brien who once again filled in at full back with aplomb.

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.
