Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Southern Kings

by Jim O'Connor, 2018-02-22

It was back to winning ways for Leinster last week but the mood in the crowd at the final whistle was far from euphoric.

The win stretched Leinster's lead to three points over the Scarlets at the top of the table in Conference B but really it should have be five. Having scored 3 tries by the 41st minute Leinster had nearly a whole half of rugby to get the bonus point try but failed to do so. Then to add insult to injury an imploding scrum allowed the Scarlets to kick a penalty to snatch a losing bonus point in the final play of the game.

In the end Leinster finished off their European pool in style with an excellent win in Montpellier to make it six wins from six and top the overall seeding. Their "reward" for such excellence is a home quarter-final against current champions Saracens. The double champions are going to be tough but if you're going to get them, best to get them at home I suppose. But that's seven weeks away and there's a huge amount of rugby to be played before then both for Leinster's large international contingent and the players left behind to keep the Pro14 challenge going.

Match Preview: Montpellier Herault vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2018-01-19

It was a pretty sweet weekend of European rugby all round for Leinster.

Not only did they win comfortably on Sunday afternoon to win their pool but every other result across the other pools went their way too. The results meant they're now guaranteed a home quarter-final and they only need one point to be top seeds. Being first or second seeds now means a home semi-final provided you're playing one of the other top four seeds so it's definitely a prize worth attaining as they face a Montpellier side coming off a heavy defeat away to Exeter last week.

It's a rare and unusual treat for Leinster fans as they get to go to the RDS for the third week running.

However as we're back to Europe but not playing an English team, it's also back to the poxy kick-off times.

One o'clock on a Sunday is hardly a time that will generate a great atmosphere but Leinster just need to keep focused and ensure they get the win that could win them the pool this weekend.
