Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs ASM Clermont Auvergne

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-04-09

It's been five years since Leinster last hosted a Heineken Cup quarter-final. In that match, Leinster succumbed meekly to Leicester (the 29-13 score-line probably flattered the home team if anything) in front of a fairly quiet crowd of 48,000 in Lansdowne Road. It was Declan Kidney's last game in charge of Leinster and a largely unheard of Australian, Michael Cheika, replaced him the following season.

Match Preview: London Irish vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-01-22

Leinster go to Twickenham tomorrow with revenge on their minds. Since they lost their first game at home to London Irish, this is the game they've been looking forward to. That loss put them under immediate pressure in the pool and they responded to that pressure magnificently with four straight wins. The fact that those wins included three bonus points was pretty handy too, particularly as the Scarlets did Leinster another massive favour last week.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Brive

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-01-15

Leinster supporters have been going through cold turkey for the last three weeks. It's one thing having no Leinster matches when we have Ireland matches as a replacement, but having nothing at all has been tough. There have been reports of roving bands of desperate Leinster fans roaming from place to place in search of their fix of rugby like characters in a Gus Van Sant movie. But now the snow has gone, hopefully for good for this season at least, and the RDS is back in business tomorrow evening.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Scarlets

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-12-18

After losing their first Heineken Cup match at home to London Irish, Leinster knew they had to win both away games in Brive and Llanelli. They achieved that with some style and played some fantastic rugby along the way. However they now have to back that up with a return to the home form that has made the RDS such a formidable venue in recent years in Europe.

Match Preview: Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-12-11

Leinster return to Heineken Cup action tomorrow with a tough trip to Llanelli. After Leinster lost at home to London Irish their next two fixtures became must-win matches. They accomplished the first part with some style away to Brive, now they have to produce a similar performance in Wales. But make no mistake, the Scarlets are up for this match!
