Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-09

Well at least after last week's games, things are a lot simpler. Leinster need just two points to be sure of finishing top of the table ahead of Glasgow, so a draw will do them tomorrow. After losing to Leinster last week Ulster will definitely finish fourth, no matter what happens in their match against Munster. Munster for their part will be looking to win and for Glasgow to somehow drop points at home to Zebre. However more than likely we shall be looking at semi-finals of Leinster v Ulster and Glasgow v Munster next weekend.

Match Preview: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

Time to get the calculators out!

For most of the season, Ireland's top three provinces seemed to have the top three spots in the Pro12 locked down. It seemed that it would only be a matter of where each of Leinster, Munster and Ulster finished in the top three and that Glasgow and the Ospreys could squabble between each other for fourth place. This is no longer that case though.

Match Preview: Pontypridd RFC vs Leinster 'A'

It's a European knock-out weekend and for the first time since May 2010, Leinster's senior team have nothing to do with themselves. Though they went out at the pool stages last season, they at least had the consolation of the Amlin Cup. True, the cup meant little or nothing in itself, but at least it was something to do to pass the time. However this time the Leinster first team have nothing to do except jealously watch the other teams in the semi-finals.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Benetton Treviso

After winning ten games in a row, Leinster have now lost two on the bounce after the Ospreys beat them last Friday evening. The result in itself wasn't a disgrace, especially coming five days after their bruising encounter in Toulon. However once again it was a very poor performance from the Leinster team who at times looked utterly clueless as to what the gameplan was.

Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

Last week Leinster were well beaten by Toulon in the South of France. In the depressing media post-mortem that followed there's been a huge amount of guff written about why they lost, from focusing on individual selections to how the team walked into the stadium. However, Leinster know what it takes to win in France as they've done it before. But to do so, there are number of requirements that are non-negotiable.
