Match Preview: Edinburgh Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-04-21

We're nearly there! Leinster face Edinburgh tomorrow night with a chance to reclaim the Magners/Celtic League six years after they claimed the inaugural event. To win the championship Leinster will need to win with four-try bonus point. This would leave them on 59 points, a total only Munster could still theoretically match, but Leinster would have 13 wins, a total Munster would fall short of even if they win all their remaining games.

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs Munster Rugby

The Magners League crown was getting closer for Leinster following the victory in the previous round against Llanelli. Munster are probably the only team left who could derail their title aspirations. A win for Leinster here would see their gap at the top of the table increase significantly, but a loss would ensure that a frenetic finish to the league would be in store.

It's unusual to have this particular derby so late in the season, but it's no harm to the level of interest in the game. Once again Leinster face a first against second play-off as in recent games against Cardiff and Llanelli Scarlets. Leinster won both those battles and another win on Saturday would go a long way towards winning the title for the first time in six years.

Match Report: Llanelli Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

by Sarah Lennon, 2008-03-31

A tough task awaited Leinster as the League's top two clashed in South Wales. The Welsh region had inflicted Leinster's last league defeat at the RDS, and on that day Leinster had defended poorly. On this visit Leinster knew that they couldn't afford to repeat that performance or else their lead at the top would be eroded. The weatherman predicted a wet and windy evening, not suited to either teams expansive style and the weather lived up to its billing.

Match Preview: Llanelli Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

It's a massive game for Leinster tomorrow evening against second placed Scarlets. Games between Leinster and Llanelli are generally great for the neutrals, with a remarkable 26 tries scored in the last three meetings between the sides. Whether we'll see such a free-scoring game this time is debatable, given the harsh weather forecast, but either way it'll be a vital game for both teams.
