Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2015-02-26

So Leinster responded to their shock home defeat to the Dragons with a bonus point win at home to Zebre. And, taken as bare facts, for some people that will mean all things are now well with the world. However the memory of the first half will haunt the fans as it was bad beyond belief. It wasn't just the usual rubbish Leinster fans have grown glumly accustomed to, it was sitting-in-a-dark-room-hugging-yourself bad.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Zebre

by Jim O'Connor, 2015-02-19

Last week, Leinster had a great chance to push themselves into third place in the table, especially after the Ospreys lost away to Edinburgh. Instead they lost to a Dragons team in Dublin for the first time ever. The Dragons had previously only beaten fellow bottom-four teams Cardiff, Treviso and Zebre this season in the league. There were the usual excuses from the Leinster management about the refereeing and the lack of a T.M.O. but if it had been televised, Leinster's only try would probably have been ruled out for a forward pass.

It does seem like an age since Leinster last played. Obviously the focus has been on Ireland for the last three weeks but the game over in Wasps feels like a distant memory. Or perhaps we would just prefer to forget it?

That game summed up where Leinster are at the moment. The first half, when Leinster were totally dominant, gave the fans a taste of what they could be. The second half however, when they pretty much collapsed, showed fans where they really are.

Well after all of the results of the weekend were in, a wonderfully simple picture emerged for Leinster's task for this week.

Win and it's a home quarter-final.

So it's back to European action this week as Leinster look to qualify from their pool, hopefully as winners. Leinster are currently level on points with Harlequins, but lie behind them in the table due to Londoners' superior head-to-head record. So what do Leinster need to do to win the pool?

Well, it's complicated.
