Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Cardiff Blues

by Jim O'Connor, 2017-03-24

While it was an up and down Six Nations championship for Ireland, it was pretty much perfect for Leinster.

From their four games they earned the maximum 20 points of the 20 available to take first place in the table. What's more, they scored another 27 tries in the four games to smash the overall try-scoring record for the regular season with five games left to play. Last time out against the Scarlets, they produced an outstanding second half to turn a tight match at half-time into another rout.

So last week's fearsome trip to Rodney Parade turned into a fairly jolly romp in the end as Leinster ran in eight tries against a hapless Dragons outfit that were booed off the pitch by their own fans.

Last week against Edinburgh, Leinster scored six tries for the second game running but it came at a considerable cost. Leinster were losing players to injury right from the start and in the second half they had a ragball rovers look to them with the starting out-half at full back, the starting scrum-half on the wing and the reserve hooker on the flank. They actually finished the game with 14 players as Joey Carbery's lack of match fitness meant he couldn't complete the 80 minutes.

Italy was a happy hunting ground for Leinster and Ireland last weekend as they both strolled to wins, scoring fifteen tries between them. True, Italian rugby is in a truly dire state and poor Conor O'Shea has a hell of a job ahead of him but both teams showed the appropriate ruthlessness and moved on. It's only a five day-gap between Leinster's match tomorrow at home to Edinburgh so there's a bit of a demand on the squad.

It seems a long, long time ago since we last previewed a Leinster match. Then, we were buzzing off the high of Leinster's demolition of Montpellier. Leinster looked well placed to finish as top seeds if they won in Castres and then we had a potential Grand Slam with Ireland to look forward to.
