Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Saracens

by Jim O'Connor, 2018-03-30

So it's finally here.

This is the game Leinster have been waiting for since they beat Montpellier in January.

Unfortunately Leinster chose to warm up with easily their worst performance of the season. It was only their third defeat of the season but in the other two defeats in Scotland, they could and probably should have won. In Swansea last week though the struggling Ospreys were miles the better team and they both out-muscled and out-played Leinster.

Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2018-03-23

So Ireland are Grand Slam champions for the first time in nine years.

Leinster were the major suppliers to the winning squad with fourteen players in the final match day squad and another five who were named in match day squads for the other games. Of course it's great to see the lads making such a great contribution to the national team, but it's a double-edged sword in terms of Leinster's prospects for the rest of the season. Josh van der Flier and Robbie Henshaw are now probably out for the season and the likes of Johnny Sexton was fairly banged up by the end of the championship.

Match Preview: Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2018-03-08

So after Storm Emma wiped out all the Pro14 games outside of South Africa last weekend, it's hopefully second time lucky as Leinster take on Scarlets for the second time in three weeks.

It will suit the Scarlets more to be played this weekend as Leinster would have likely been bolstered by a couple of Ireland squad members.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Southern Kings

by Jim O'Connor, 2018-02-22

It was back to winning ways for Leinster last week but the mood in the crowd at the final whistle was far from euphoric.

The win stretched Leinster's lead to three points over the Scarlets at the top of the table in Conference B but really it should have be five. Having scored 3 tries by the 41st minute Leinster had nearly a whole half of rugby to get the bonus point try but failed to do so. Then to add insult to injury an imploding scrum allowed the Scarlets to kick a penalty to snatch a losing bonus point in the final play of the game.
