Match Preview: Zebre vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-02-19

And we're back!

Leinster return to action in Italy this Sunday, after three weeks off. As with their last visit to Italy in November, this game will be massively overshadowed by international action. That time Leinster were in Treviso quietly winning while Ireland lost heart-breakingly to New Zealand. At least this time the games aren't directly clashing with Ireland playing Wales on Saturday afternoon.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ospreys

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-02-13

As predicted here, last week's game turned out to be a tight, grind of a match dominated by penalty kicks and tight defence.

Eh no, wait, hang on...

In my defence, who could have seen that crazy rollercoaster of a match coming?

Match Preview: Castres Olympique vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-01-10

Two games!

This coming Sunday Leinster play Castres and then five days later they take on the Ospreys.

Win them both and Leinster will be in the quarter-finals, possibly with a home draw if other results go their way.

Win one of two and they'll be in a desperate scramble to qualify at all, although again it will depend on how the other games in the pool go.

Lose both and they'll be out!

Match Preview: Connacht Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-01-03

After two fairly dismal performances in a row they turned up in an angry humour versus Ulster and took them apart. They brought a real physical edge to everything they did and really should have won by a larger margin. When the teams were named Ulster seemed to have the stronger hand, but the men from the North never looked as if they believed they could win. True, Leinster should have put more scores on the board, especially in the first half when they dominated possession and territory but it was still a massive improvement on what had gone before and the win put Leinster back into second place in the table.

Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2013-12-28

After eight wins on the trot, it's now two defeats in a row for Leinster after they were beaten in a rain soaked game in Edinburgh last time out. The conditions were appalling but sadly so was Leinster's performance in a game that will want to be forgotten as quickly as possible by anyone unfortunate enough to witness it. Edinburgh deserved their win but coach Matt O'Connor would have given his players a fierce ear-bashing after the game.
