Match Preview: Exeter Chiefs vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2013-01-18

Leinster got the five points they were after last week against the Scarlets. However there was still a sense of frustration after the match as Leinster felt they could have scored more than the five tries they got. They had the bonus point secured after 43 minutes and though the Scarlets were game, you still felt Leinster could have kicked on and really boosted the lowly try-count. However, their intensity visibly dropped after that and they only had Ian Madigan's late try to add to their total.

Last Sunday's match was definitely filed under "the ones that got away".

If offered a losing bonus point before the game, most Leinster fans would have taken it. However, Leinster put in such a magnificently brave performance in Stade Marcel-Michelin that both players and supporters left the arena thinking of what might have been.

The good news: A much improved performance and a third win over Munster in a row.

The bad news: More bloody injuries!!

By the end of a match, Leinster had a back three of John Cooney, Ian Madigan and Fionn Carr with Noel Reid in the centre alongside Fergus McFadden. Not exactly a line-up to inspire defensive confidence. However, they hung on to close out the win and deny Munster even the consolation of a losing bonus point.

Leinster arrive at their third Heineken Cup final on the back of their most successful season ever in terms of wins. Their victory over Glasgow in the Pro 12 semi-final made it 26 wins, 2 draws and only 3 defeats in 31 games this season. With two of those defeats coming in the first three weeks of the season while the World Cup was still on, their record is an even more impressive 1 defeat in their last 28 games.
