Match Preview: Exeter Chiefs vs Leinster Rugby

That was a let down!

Leinster Rugby versus RC Toulon was going to kick-off the long Easter weekend and I'm sure I wasn't the only Leinster fan to have made special arrangements to be ready to watch the game at the early 5:30pm kick-off. Instead we had to make do with London Irish versus Cardiff in the Challenge Cup (which did turn out to be a bit of a classic in fairness complete with a late Sean O'Brien cameo). The positive COVID-19 test which led to Toulon effectively conceding the game was unfortunate and it leaves a sour taste in everyone's mouth. It's a horrible way to lose a game but also not a great way to win either. But unfortunately these are the times we're living in and you just hope that the remaining seven fixtures are won and lost on the pitch.

That was enjoyable!

It wasn't a perfect performance by any stretch of the imagination but I think both the Leinster players and fans enjoyed that victorious Pro14 final a lot more than the previous three wins over Scarlets, Glasgow and Ulster.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Munster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2021-03-26

Shoehorned in the weekend between the end of the Six Nations and the resumption of the European Champions Cup, the Grand Final doesn't feel all that grand this season if truth be told.

The premature end to the league season is of course to allow space to play the Rainbow Cup with the four big South African teams coming into the fold. They've finally announced some fixtures for that today as it appeared the whole tournament could be in danger of not happening. No European teams will be travelling to South Africa though so you wonder how fair it is but we'll see.

A young Leinster side did the job away to Zebre last week.

Now there's just one more game to play before the final against Munster in the RDS next Saturday the 27th. The following Friday from that they will take on Toulon in the Heineken Champions Cup, so it's a pretty intense period coming up.

Match Preview: Zebre vs Leinster Rugby

After something of a bizarre win over Ulster last week, Leinster earned their place in a fourth Grand Final on the trot.

After beating the Scarlets, Glasgow and Ulster in the last three seasons, this time they'll finally meet Munster with a trophy at stake for the first time since the 2011 Pro12 final. Of course Munster won that day in Thomond Park but that was the last silverware Munster got their hands on.
