Match Preview: Benetton Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2020-01-17

Leinster face a trip to Italy for the third time this season. They are looking to seal top seed in the standings for the knock-out stages for the second time in three seasons.

It's worth remembering that both of those previous trips to Italy were actually narrow wins. There was the roller-coaster of a 32-27 win in the first game of the season in Benetton. It could haven't been more different to the dire 3-0 slog of a win in Zebre.

It was lucky number thirteen for Leinster as they made it a baker's dozen of wins last weekend in Limerick.

Leinster played the conditions smartly to earn a decent lead in the first half when they had the wind in their favour. Then they defended superbly in the second half to hold Munster out and earn a satisfying win.

Leinster's pre-Christmas win over Ulster certainly didn't lack for entertainment.

14 tries were shared between the two teams. Leo Cullen will have been shouting "Humbug" all week in training though. Leinster had the game comfortably won when they scored their seventh try of the match to lead 47-14 on the 48th minute. Yet they were only to score one more try and also conceded another four in a sloppy and undisciplined last quarter.

With qualification as pool winners secured for the quarter-finals after four matches, Leinster can look back on a satisfactory European campaign so far.

Truth be told, the pool has been handy enough and there are certainly tougher tests to come in the later stages. But Leo Cullen will still be pleased especially in the backdrop of a desperate World Cup campaign. Before European action can recommence Leinster face into the round of Christmas/New year inter-pros. It's Ulster and Connacht at the RDS broken up by a trip to Thomond Park to face Munster.
