Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

by Jim O'Connor, 2019-04-12

After drawing with Benetton last week, the already qualified Leinster need to fulfill another meaningless fixture for them at home to Glasgow before the big match against Toulouse next week.

Glasgow won't be short of motivation though as they are still fighting for top spot of Conference A against Munster and a guaranteed home semi-final. They are at home to Edinburgh in the final match in two weeks, but given how Munster have sent a considerably weakened team to Benetton tonight a win tomorrow afternoon should clinch top spot for them.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Benetton Rugby

Leinster progressed to the semi finals of the Champions Cup last week but Ulster made it a lot tougher than expected.

Ulster brought a surprising physicality to the mix, especially in defence and they deserve great credit for pushing Leinster to the wire. But when it mattered Leinster still had the nous and ability to get themselves over the line. Sadly the game also featured a horrendous injury to Dan Leavy and it's a devastating blow for a player who's never had much luck. It's also a big blow to Leinster and Ireland too at the World Cup.

Match Preview: Edinburgh Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

In stark contrast to last season, Leinster's Irish have trudged back to their province this week on the back of a desperately disappointing Six Nations campaign.

After a bad start against England, Ireland seemed to have re-discovered something close to form against France, but really it was a case of the French being awful rather than Ireland being that good. Against Wales, they were utterly hopeless, beaten up and out-smarted on and off the pitch.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Cheetahs

by Jim O'Connor, 2019-02-28

For the second week in a row, it's Fright Night Lights at the RDS versus South African opposition.

To their credit the Kings did make something of a game of it for twenty minutes or so. They shocked Leinster by taking a 12-7 lead but the score thereafter was 52-7 to the home team so they were never really in any trouble. The Cheetahs should offer a little more competition but probably not much more.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Southern Kings

Well that wasn't the normal game against Italian opposition!

After 20 minutes it was business as usual. Leinster were cruising with a 21 point lead and the watching fans' only fear was trying to retain interest in another facile romp. However, by half-time Leinster's lead had been reduced to two points as Zebre took advantage of some lax defending to score three tries.
