Match Preview: Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Conor, 2013-09-05

Matt O'Connor has arguably the toughest job in European rugby this season.

He's got a hard act to follow in Leinster's last two head coaches Michael Cheika and Joe Schmidt. His fellow Australian Cheika changed the whole culture of Leinster and brought home that precious first Heineken Cup. Cheika's replacement Schmidt built on the foundations laid down and added in a fair bit of style as Leinster conquered Europe twice more, playing rugby that had rugby fans all over the world purring in approval.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Stade Francais Paris

It is almost two years since the ERC announced that its flagship event the Heineken cup final would be returning to Dublin for the first time in ten years. At the time of the announcement Leinster were champions of that competition for the second time in three years. A third championship followed in 2012 and the supporters began to dream of the ultimate three in a row in Dublin.

Match Preview: Newcastle Falcons vs Leinster 'A'

Typical! After four years of trying, Leinster finally get to the final of this competition. However not only are they away from home for the third game running, their final is directly clashing with the Amlin Cup Final. What's more, because of that clash, Sky aren't showing any coverage of it whatsoever, after they screened the last three finals live. So if Leinster do manage a win, there will be precious few witnesses to it.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

by Jim O'Connor, 2013-05-17

Well now we know that, whatever happens, Leinster won't need to leave the RDS for the rest of the season. It makes a change from expensive end of season trips I guess. Three wins from the next three games will bring two trophies and make up at least partially for the early exit from the Heineken Cup. However that's easier said than done, especially in the Pro12 play-offs. Even though Leinster will be desperate to finally lay their Grand Final bogey to rest after three consecutive defeats, Ulster, Scarlets and Glasgow will have their own designs on the trophy.
