Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Stade Toulousain

by Jim O'Connor, 2019-05-18

It's another massive game for Leinster at the Aviva stadium as they take on Toulouse looking to make the final for the second year running.

After losing in Toulouse by a point in a thrilling game on a warm and sunny October Sunday, revenge was served cold in January in the RDS. Actually never mind cold, it was bloody freezing as Leinster dominated on their way to a crushing 29-13 win. However the free-spirited Toulouse will find the more open environs of the Aviva Stadium on a warm Easter Sunday a lot more to their liking. Despite that comprehensive defeat their form has still been very good with only Leinster and Toulon beating them in their last 24 games.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2019-03-29

Leinster are back in European knock-out action this week but it's fair to say the build-up has been pretty low key.

The gloom from the wreckage of Ireland's Six Nations campaign is certainly still hanging around and if we're honest the prospect of playing Ulster doesn't quicken the heart the same as playing a Wasps, Saracens or Toulouse.

Match Preview: Wasps vs Leinster Rugby

That was the sort of match that makes you glad you're a Leinster fan!

Leinster players, coaches and fans all went into last week's match with some genuine trepidation on the back of the myriad injuries and Toulouse's recent fine form. It was a rare feeling to be going into a home match with a genuine flutter of nerves in the belly but it made for a great atmosphere as the RDS was packed well before kick-off. But Leinster deployed the perfect gameplan battering the Toulouse pack into submission and denying their dangerous backs any decent ball. By the end they had earned a bonus point win and left Toulouse knowing they've still a long way to go before they can be champions.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Stade Toulousain

This is it, the biggest game of the season so far!

Ever since Leinster lost in Toulouse on a Sunday afternoon in October this is the game we've been waiting for. That day Toulouse seemed to rediscover the spirit of their great sides of the 90's and 00's. They played some great rugby and scored some dazzling tries. They were deserved winners and yet Leinster really should have won that game. They survived the bad start to put themselves in a winning position but an unfortunate intercept tilted the game back to Toulouse. For the supporters who were there, the general agreement was that Leinster would stuff them when we got them back at the RDS in January.
