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.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

by Jim O'Connor, 2018-02-16

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.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Exeter Chiefs

by Jim O'Connor, 2017-12-15

As confidently predicted here last week, Leinster stormed to a glorious victory over Exeter at Sandy Park last week (just trust me on that, don't go back and check)!

In fairness to Leo Cullen he picked a team to grind out a win and grind it out they did, out-Chiefing the Chiefs with the relentless pick and drive game in the second half. Exeter were a tough team but you could see the difference on the night between a really good club pack and a top international pack. Exeter possibly froze a little on the night and Leinster really could have been out of sight after the first twenty minutes.

Match Preview: Exeter Chiefs vs Leinster Rugby

Leinster return to European action this week to face their toughest test of the season so far.

They take on the English Champions Exeter, who are also the current leaders in the Premiership. Exeter are a remarkable rags to riches story, especially in the era of the mega-bucks English clubs like Waaps, Saracens and Bath throwing their wads around like 'Loadsamoney' wannabies.

Match Preview: Glasgow Warriors v Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2017-11-02

So it's another early Saturday kick-off for the third week running as Leinster travel to Glasgow to take on the Warriors.

In terms of results last week, it was almost perfect for Leinster. They gained a maximum five point haul from their match while in the other pool match there was no bonus points for either side as Exeter beat Glasgow at home. Only the losing bonus point Montpellier earned will rankle with them especially as they really should have closed the game out after they scored the fourth try which gave them their own bonus point.
