Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Scarlets

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-09-12

It was back to normal for Leinster last week as they lost their opening day fixture. Last season, they broke a tradition stretching back years that Leinster must lose on the road the first day out with a very entertaining win over the Scarlets. This raised expectations for a season of enterprising rugby that was rarely borne out. So last week was a return to tradition with a rubbish performance that there can only be improvement from (hopefully).

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-30

Leinster take on Glasgow Warriors tomorrow evening looking to be become the first team to retain the Celtic League/Magners League/Pro12/whatever you're having yourself trophy. Whatever it's been called, Leinster have been in every Grand Final since the league switched to the play-off structure in 2009. Of the five finals, four have been in the RDS, although last year's was only switched to there as Ravenhill's redevelopment wasn't complete in time.

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-22

Like the senior team with the Pro12, Leinster's second team also have a chance to successfully defend the trophy they won last year. This time however, they'll get a chance to do it at home in front of a bumper home crowd with Leinster's first team having no involvement in a European final for the first time since 2010.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-22

It hasn't been a vintage season for any of the Irish provinces. They all delivered big performances at one point in Europe, Leinster away to Northampton, Ulster away to Leicester/Montpellier, Munster at home to Toulouse and Connacht away to the same opponents. But none of them have really strung enough good performances together to really be happy with themselves. However a Pro12 league trophy would provide something tangible for the season.
