Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-04-10

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.

Match Preview: RC Toulonnais vs Leinster Rugby

In a quality line-up of quarter-finals of what is sadly the last ever Heineken Cup, the battle between the last two winners just about takes the cake. Leinster take on the champions Toulon in the first ever meeting between the two sides. Toulon are relatively new to the top table, having risen meteorically from the French lower divisions to European champions in just seven years.

However a couple of factors have come together to make tomorrow's match one of the most hotly anticipated in years.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Zebre

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-03-20

The gift to Irish rugby that is Joe Schmidt just keeps on giving. On the foot on his unprecedented success as Leinster coach, he has now delivered a Six Nations championship in his first season in the Ireland job. Hopefully it's only a start too and there's a lot more success to come the way of the Ireland team in the next few seasons. It was also wonderful to see Brian O'Driscoll finish his Ireland career with another medal around his neck.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-02-28

Leinster take on Glasgow tomorrow in their final game before a two week break for the end of the Six Nations. Results-wise, the last three games have been perfect with a maximum return of 15 points. The performances have wavered in quality somewhat and last week against Cardiff, it was very up and down. After a storming start from Leinster, Cardiff came right back into the game by taking advantage of some woeful Leinster defending. Leinster made a better start to the second half but again let their standards slip once they had built a commanding lead.
