Match Preview: London Irish vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-01-22

Leinster go to Twickenham tomorrow with revenge on their minds. Since they lost their first game at home to London Irish, this is the game they've been looking forward to. That loss put them under immediate pressure in the pool and they responded to that pressure magnificently with four straight wins. The fact that those wins included three bonus points was pretty handy too, particularly as the Scarlets did Leinster another massive favour last week.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Brive

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-01-15

Leinster supporters have been going through cold turkey for the last three weeks. It's one thing having no Leinster matches when we have Ireland matches as a replacement, but having nothing at all has been tough. There have been reports of roving bands of desperate Leinster fans roaming from place to place in search of their fix of rugby like characters in a Gus Van Sant movie. But now the snow has gone, hopefully for good for this season at least, and the RDS is back in business tomorrow evening.

Match Preview: Connacht Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-01-01

After a momentous 2009, Leinster travel to Galway for their first match of 2010. The Sportsground is always a tough venue to visit and Leinster endured a lot of close calls in recent years before finally losing there last season. On that occasion Leinster had travelled with a weakened team and it's the same this time with several top men rested, Brian O'Driscoll, Rob Kearney and Jamie Heaslip the most notable. Connacht rested some of their star men for the timid defeat away to Munster so it's clear they're targeting this one. So Leinster are up against it tomorrow.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-12-24

Leinster return to the Magners League after a very successful two weeks in the Heineken Cup. Two wins and 10 points was exactly what was needed to bring Leinster's campaign back to life and they achieved them with some style. It must be said, it felt like the old days seeing Leinster running in a hatful of tries again. Some might say that the Scarlets' defence was weak, but in recent times Leinster have played worse teams than them but failed to score tries.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Scarlets

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-12-18

After losing their first Heineken Cup match at home to London Irish, Leinster knew they had to win both away games in Brive and Llanelli. They achieved that with some style and played some fantastic rugby along the way. However they now have to back that up with a return to the home form that has made the RDS such a formidable venue in recent years in Europe.
