Match Preview: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-12-26

Last week's match was really one of those days to remember for Leinster fans.

Leinster needed to beat Clermont and they did so in such style, that the result was effectively decided with half an hour to go. It was a truly awesome performance, one of Leinster's best ever. We all know what a big team Clermont are, but Leinster upped the stakes physically from the previous week and simply didn't let them play. They combined this with some fantastic attacking rugby and this time when they got to the line, they made sure they finished off their chances. Obviously the lads were reading last week's preview!!

Leinster and Munster took to the Donnybrook field on a bitterly cold Saturday afternoon to contest this season's Interpro title. Both sides had beaten Connacht and Ulster comprehensively in the previous rounds and it was a winner takes all match to decide the destiny of this year's title.

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs ASM Clermont Auvergne

Early last week when Leinster were counting the wounded from their trip to France, coach Joe Schmidt was busy talking about Vern Cotters penchant for mind games. Well now, following Leinsters impressive win over their visitors, perhaps it's his previous understudy who could be accused of the mind games.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs ASM Clermont Auvergne

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-12-17

Just six days after last Sunday's momentous clash in France, Leinster and Clermont need to dust themselves off and go out and do battle again. It was, once again, a fantastic game between the two sides. Clermont just about deserved their win but Leinster wouldn't have been too upset to escape with a precious losing bonus point. It was a wonderfully brave performance by the blues, especially considering the relatively callow team they had out in comparison to the mighty Jaunards line-up. That said, Leinster will know that with a bit more composure with the many chances they created they could have drawn or even won the match.

A bird's eye view from the terrace: Ask not what your province can do for you...

by Yvonne Kelly, 2010-12-15

After the visit of Clermont to the RDS earlier this year those who travelled to Stade Marcel Michelin last weekend knew they were in for an experience, but I doubt any Leinster fan expected just how intense that atmosphere would be. We have all admired those areas in away grounds from where the noise and atmosphere seems to emanate - the supporters stand in Toulouse, the promenade in Ulster and the shed in Gloucester to name but a few. But in rugby grounds the world over I have never seen anything quite like what we witnessed last Sunday.
