Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Benetton Treviso

by Jim O'Connor, 2013-02-15

With no Six Nations game this weekend, the focus is back on the league as Leinster take on Benetton Treviso at the RDS. The Leinster squad will go into the match buoyed by a fine performance from a young team last weekend in Cardiff. In a game played in miserable conditions on a heavy pitch, they took charge in the first half and ultimately ran out 26-11 winners. Of course only the supporters present were able to witness the performance as most Leinster fans were only able to "follow" the game on Twitter.

There's no getting away from it, it's been a tough few weeks for Leinster fans. First up there was the exit from the Heineken Cup and that was followed up the following week by the news that Jonathan Sexton would be moving on to play his club rugby in France next season.

Match Preview: Exeter Chiefs vs Leinster Rugby

Leinster got the five points they were after last week against the Scarlets. However there was still a sense of frustration after the match as Leinster felt they could have scored more than the five tries they got. They had the bonus point secured after 43 minutes and though the Scarlets were game, you still felt Leinster could have kicked on and really boosted the lowly try-count. However, their intensity visibly dropped after that and they only had Ian Madigan's late try to add to their total.

It wasn't pretty last week but a young team got the win Leinster needed against Connacht to end their losing streak and keep them in touch with the top four. Once again, Glasgow, Munster and the Ospreys, Leinster's closest contenders at the moment, all won but the top two teams, Ulster and Scarlets, both lost. Ulster are still unlikely to be caught at the top but the Scarlets defeat means they are in big danger of slipping down, especially as they have to travel to Ravenhill to face the leaders tomorrow. There's only three points between second placed Scarlets and sixth placed Leinster which shows how competitive the battle for the top four is this season.
