Match Preview: Bath Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-12-09

Ah Bath!

The small city in the south-west of England holds special memories for Leinster fans. Possibly the most beautiful city in England, Leinster visited two years in a row back in January 2005 and 2006. They won the first game with a late smash and grab raid when David Holwell and Malcolm O'Kelly scored tries in the final minutes. Those scores secured a 27-23 win, but in truth Bath had been the better team by far.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-11-18

After six weeks away, Leinster fans will be happy to be back home at the RDS. Heineken Cup games are rare at the RDS these days with so many games being moved to the Aviva for understandable financial reasons. The atmosphere at the new stadium has been generally good but it's not like the special crackle in the air you get on Heineken Cup days at the RDS. Even with the lousy kick off time, 12.45 on a Sunday, there should be a buzz about the place for the visit of Glasgow, who are the surprise group leaders after week one.

So let the case for the defence begin!

For the second time in three years, Leinster begin their campaign as defending Heineken Cup champions. They are looking to become the first team to retain the trophy since Leicester over a decade ago. They are also looking to become the first team ever to win it three times in four years. Of course all Leinster�s main rivals are determined to stop that happening.

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs Northampton Saints

by Patrick Fennelly, 2011-08-23

Despite being heavy favourites, there was still a nervous, looming fear that engulfed Leinster in the run up to Saturday's final with Northampton. Something about the favourties tag doesn't seem to suit Irish sides. Its the expectation that builds the pressure.
