Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Bath Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-12-16

In a major golf tournament the Saturday is called 'moving day', in that the players who are going to contend move into position and others drop away. The fourth week of the Heineken Cup pool stages is quite similar. By the end of it, everyone has a good idea of who's going to get out of their groups and who can basically concentrate on their domestic competition for the rest of the season.

Match Preview: Bath Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2011-12-09

Ah Bath!

The small city in the south-west of England holds special memories for Leinster fans. Possibly the most beautiful city in England, Leinster visited two years in a row back in January 2005 and 2006. They won the first game with a late smash and grab raid when David Holwell and Malcolm O'Kelly scored tries in the final minutes. Those scores secured a 27-23 win, but in truth Bath had been the better team by far.

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.
