Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Northampton Saints

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-08-23

So here we go again. Two years after Leinster won the Heineken Cup for the first time on a glorious day in Murrayfield, they will attempt to become only the fifth club to win it more than once. Their opponents Northampton will also be looking for their second trophy and the chance to join an elite group comprised of Toulouse, Leicester, Wasps and Munster.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Stade Toulousain

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-08-23

For the sixth time in their history, Leinster contest a Heineken Cup semi-final this Saturday. So far, their record in semi-finals is won one, lost four. Their opponents, Toulouse, are the aristocracy of Europe, with four Heineken Cups to their name. This is their tenth semi-final and so far they've won six and lost three. The last of those losing semi-finals was against Munster in Bordeaux eleven years ago. So, in their last five semi-finals they've won the lot, including last season's win over Leinster in Toulouse.

Last week, Leinster's five-game winning streak against their biggest rivals was ended by an excellent second half fight-back from Munster. Losing by a point in Thomond Park is of course no disgrace, but Leinster will rue that they let an 11-point half-time lead slip away. True, they got nothing off the very poor referee Andrew Small in the second half, but they didn't make things easy on themselves either.

Match Report: Racing Metro 92 vs Leinster Rugby

by Sarah Lennon, 2011-01-24

A small but merry band of Leinster supporters congregated in the Stade Olympique Yves-du-Manoir in Colombes to watch Leinster take on Racing Metro on a cold Friday night. As a supporter it was a strange experience being on a temporary stand in a stadium that once held 60,000 people and hosted the National Team.
