Match Preview: Glasgow Warriors vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-09-03

Leinster start their Magners League campaign tonight in Glasgow. Leinster haven't won in Firhill for the last four seasons so it's not an easy place for Joe Schmidt to go to for his first competitive match in charge. The two pre-season matches against Wasps and Leicester were both heavy defeats but it would be wrong to read too much into the results given the strengths of the respective line-ups. Tonight though, the serious business begins.

Season Preview: 2010-2011 Season Preview

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-09-02

The perfect ending to Michael Cheika's Leinster career was not to be as the Ospreys earned a deserved win at the RDS in the Magners League Grand Final last May. So Leinster were denied a third trophy in three seasons and a fitting end to so many playing and coaching careers. However it's typical of Cheika's honesty that he summed it up in such a blunt, no-nonsense manner. If there's one thing that Cheika has left as a legacy to the squad it's that brutal, searching honesty.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ospreys

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-05-29

When the Magners League announced that they were introducing play-offs, they must have been hoping for a first Grand Final like tomorrow with first versus second and two star-studded teams to boot. Both teams have two titles to their names and will want to be the first to complete the hat-trick. Leinster come into the game full of confidence after their excellent semi-final win over Munster two weeks ago. However they will be very wary of an Ospreys team that is packed with talent and who very much have a point to prove.
