Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Cardiff Blues

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-12-01

Leinster take on Cardiff in the RDS tomorrow hoping to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to nine games. They haven't lost since the shock defeat to Glasgow back in September and last week they successfully avoided a potential landmine by winning away in Treviso. After losing there last season Joe Schmidt would have been delighted with the win, especially after sending out a team with ten changes from the previous week.

Match Preview: Benetton Treviso vs Leinster Rugby

First the good news! Thanks to FIRA doing a deal with Italian national broadcaster RAI, and RTE taking their feed, we'll actually be able to see this match. On Leinster's last trip to Italy in Aironi we had to rely on twitter feeds and radio updates which can be pretty frustrating.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-11-18

After six weeks away, Leinster fans will be happy to be back home at the RDS. Heineken Cup games are rare at the RDS these days with so many games being moved to the Aviva for understandable financial reasons. The atmosphere at the new stadium has been generally good but it's not like the special crackle in the air you get on Heineken Cup days at the RDS. Even with the lousy kick off time, 12.45 on a Sunday, there should be a buzz about the place for the visit of Glasgow, who are the surprise group leaders after week one.

by Patrick Fennelly, 2011-11-14

Leinster began their European title defence with a tough away battle with last years French finalists Montpellier. Despite a poor run of form in the Top 14, winning only 2 games of 9 played this season, Montpellier gladly welcomed back their World Cup internationals to the fold right in time for the European champions arrival in town.

So let the case for the defence begin!

For the second time in three years, Leinster begin their campaign as defending Heineken Cup champions. They are looking to become the first team to retain the trophy since Leicester over a decade ago. They are also looking to become the first team ever to win it three times in four years. Of course all Leinster�s main rivals are determined to stop that happening.
