The Leinster - Edinburgh Rivalry

by Andrew Farrell, 2008-10-10

For Barcelona , read Alfredo di Stefano; For Europe, read Jimmy Demaret; For England, read Australia; For the Boston Red Sox, read Babe Ruth; and for Leinster , read......... eh......... Duncan Hodge?

OK, so the comparison isn't quite the same and is void of international awareness, but Hodge has done more than most to set upon Leinster a chilling form of jinx. His record of played three, won two, drew one, and a grand total of 25 points is a massive understatement to his contributions. (oh, and for good measure, his only appearance against Ireland during a twenty-six times capped career for Scotland was Murrayfield 2001: Scotland 32, Ireland 10).

Match Report: Leicester Tigers vs Leinster Rugby

by Sarah Lennon, 2011-08-23

Although this match effectively constituted a dead rubber it was nonetheless a match both sides would want to win. Leinster had been unable to replicate their Magners League form on the road in the Heineken Cup and Leicester and their supporters were smarting at their group stage exit after going all the way to the final the previous season. For old boys Leo Cullen and Shane Jennings the motivation to play well would have been high.

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs Stade Toulousain

by Sarah Lennon, 2011-08-23

Leinster faced Toulouse at the RDS knowing that while their qualification hopes still had a pulse, they were very much on the critical list. There was still pride to play for and an opportunity to demonstrate that in another time and another group Leinster could have been a force in this competition.
