Match Preview: Montpellier Herault RC vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-11-10

So let the case for the defence begin!

For the second time in three years, Leinster begin their campaign as defending Heineken Cup champions. They are looking to become the first team to retain the trophy since Leicester over a decade ago. They are also looking to become the first team ever to win it three times in four years. Of course all Leinster�s main rivals are determined to stop that happening.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Munster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-11-07

If there's one thing to banish the blues of the World Cup and get the provincial juices flowing, it's Leinster v Munster at the Aviva Stadium. The late Friday night kick-off time will probably prevent it from being a complete sell-out but there still should be about around 46,000+ fans present. With the Heineken Cup starting next week, both teams will be looking to up their intensity and performance in this match.

Match Report: Edinburgh Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

Here's Jonny ! Leinster came away with a win from Murrayfield on Friday night despite losing the try count 2-3. Leinster needed Jonny Sexton to punish Edinburgh's indiscipline and Sexton, as often before, was not found wanting. It was the 60th minute and 5 for 5 before he missed a conversion. Sexton was sharp and assured throughout a high scoring match that was only won in the 71st minute when he struck a sweet drop goal.

By the time this match kicks off, we will already know the score of the Ireland - Wales quarter-final at the World Cup. No doubt it will affect the mood of the crowd at the RDS but good or bad both teams will have to put it out of their minds because they've serious business to attend to. With a three-week break in the league coming up for the final stages of the World Cup, this game will largely define the success or failure of the six-week 'mini-season' we've seen to date.
