Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Leicester Tigers

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-08-23

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.

Leinster enter round five of their toughest pool ever in the Heineken Cup with the finish line in sight. Their three wins and a losing bonus point in their first four matches has put them in prime position to win the pool, but they still have work to do to qualify for the quarter-finals. Assuming Clermont beat a weakened Racing Metro line-up tonight but don't get a four-try bonus point, a Leinster win tomorrow will win them the group. If Clermont do win with a bonus point, Leinster will have to win with a bonus point themselves in order to top the pool with a game to spare. As the Clermont match is on tonight, Leinster will know exactly what they need to do come kick-off, but you get the feeling that Joe Schmidt will just be happy with a win of any sort.
