Match Preview: Edinburgh Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2007-12-20

Leinster face Edinburgh in Murrayfield on Saturday in the second part of their Heineken Cup double-header. Last week's game left a bit of a sour taste for Leinster supporters. Half an hour in, Leinster were two tries up and dominant. A bonus point win looked inevitable but then the game changed. Whether it was arrogance on the part of the backs or strategy from the bench, Leinster changed their game plan. Suddenly the backs were running everything and mistakes started to creep in. This played into the hands of the Edinburgh side who came back into the game in the second half. Indeed, had the Scottish side not missed several kicks at goal, it could have been an even tenser night for Leinster fans.

The Heineken Cup resumes tomorrow night as Leinster take on Edinburgh in the RDS.  Leinster go into this match on a high after last week's historic victory over Munster in Cork.  It was a special night for Leinster as the pack fronted up and beat Munster at their own game in a match played in horrendous conditions.  After the great performance against Leicester, the pack took a step back against Toulouse, but they've stepped up to the mark again.  This type of performance has to become the standard from which they don't waver.

Match Preview: Stade Toulousain vs Leinster Rugby

Leinster travel to Toulouse with happy memories of the last time they travelled to this rugby hotbed. In April 2006 "les bleus" put the then reigning champions to the sword 41 - 35, a score line that if anything, flattered Toulouse.

Although an entire Heineken Cup season has passed, one that was ultimately disappointing for both of these teams, the memories from that Spring day must be fresh in both team's minds.
