Match Preview: Edinburgh Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-09-25

Leinster return to Murrayfield this Saturday, the scene of their greatest ever day last May. It was of course ironic that they finally achieved their first Heineken Cup triumph in the stadium where they've suffered so much disappointment down the years. Leinster's Magners League record in Murrayfield is pretty dismal with only one win in eight efforts, and that was against a depleted team (the SRFU were resting internationals for a Scotland - Barbarians match......yeah I know, but that's the SRFU for you!) What's more they're facing a Edinburgh team in fine form with nine consecutive Magners League wins in a row (including last season).

Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-09-25

Leinster travel to Swansea this Friday, after a disrupted week in which fourteen of the squad were away at an Ireland Training camp. It was hardly ideal preparation for what is always a tough away trip. The Ospreys will be smarting from last week's shock home defeat to Ulster. Their own supporters booed them off the pitch so they will be desperate to avoid two home defeats in a row. Leinster haven't lost to the Ospreys for the last two seasons, although it must be said, they never played each other at full strength in this time due to various reasons.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-09-11

Last week's opening game against the Scarlets will be filed under "Ones that got away". Going into the game, defeat was not considered an impossibility by any means but the way they lost was quite surprising. We've seen Leinster start seasons slowly before and struggle to get any pattern into their game, but Leinster actually played very well in the first half. The pack was dominating, Jonny Sexton was kicking beautifully and the backline was working well. After half an hour they led 16-7 and were facing thirteen men, due to the Scarlets indiscipline.
