Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

by Jim O'Connor, 2015-02-14

It does seem like an age since Leinster last played. Obviously the focus has been on Ireland for the last three weeks but the game over in Wasps feels like a distant memory. Or perhaps we would just prefer to forget it?

That game summed up where Leinster are at the moment. The first half, when Leinster were totally dominant, gave the fans a taste of what they could be. The second half however, when they pretty much collapsed, showed fans where they really are.

So it's back to European action this week as Leinster look to qualify from their pool, hopefully as winners. Leinster are currently level on points with Harlequins, but lie behind them in the table due to Londoners' superior head-to-head record. So what do Leinster need to do to win the pool?

Match Preview: Cardiff Blues vs Leinster Rugby

Leinster bounced back last week with a decent win over Ulster. After a poor enough first half, in which they were fortunate Ulster didn't take their chances, Leinster dominated the second for a deserved victory. On a good weekend all round, all of the top four teams lost, remarkably none even earning a bonus point, so Leinster edged into the top four.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2015-01-02

After a mildly encouraging performance against Connacht, it was normal service resumed for Leinster last week. As in the game earlier in the season in the Aviva stadium, Munster were comfortably the better team as Leinster were again beaten up at the breakdown and easily held out wide. In a team that started with twelve internationals, it was noticable that the two non-capped players in the pack, Jack Conan and Tadgh Furlong, were the only two players to emerge with any credit. If, as the players insist, it is their fault that they're underperforming and not the coaches, then at least there is hope that there are young players coming through to replace the current batch, who frankly are not cutting it these days.
