Match Report: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Yvonne Kelly, 2010-12-29

The OLSC brought 3 bus loads of post-Christmas revellers to Belfast. No-one can dispute the welcome that always awaits the Mexicans when they travel north of the border but there are a couple of other things that always come to mind when we start to think about our annual trip up north - the bus and the weather. The bus journey has become the stuff of legend and possibly a few myths exist at this stage. There was the year when the bus got lost and ended up in the grounds of Stormont and another when on taking a wrong turn off Ravenhill road we ended up facing into a parade and having to reverse the whole way back out. On another occasion the weather got the better of the transport and the bus had to return to Dublin minus a window wiper.

Match Preview: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-12-26

Last week's match was really one of those days to remember for Leinster fans.

Leinster needed to beat Clermont and they did so in such style, that the result was effectively decided with half an hour to go. It was a truly awesome performance, one of Leinster's best ever. We all know what a big team Clermont are, but Leinster upped the stakes physically from the previous week and simply didn't let them play. They combined this with some fantastic attacking rugby and this time when they got to the line, they made sure they finished off their chances. Obviously the lads were reading last week's preview!!

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs ASM Clermont Auvergne

by Patrick Fennelly, 2011-08-23

Early last week when Leinster were counting the wounded from their trip to France, coach Joe Schmidt was busy talking about Vern Cotters penchant for mind games. Well now, following Leinsters impressive win over their visitors, perhaps it's his previous understudy who could be accused of the mind games.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs ASM Clermont Auvergne

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-12-17

Just six days after last Sunday's momentous clash in France, Leinster and Clermont need to dust themselves off and go out and do battle again. It was, once again, a fantastic game between the two sides. Clermont just about deserved their win but Leinster wouldn't have been too upset to escape with a precious losing bonus point. It was a wonderfully brave performance by the blues, especially considering the relatively callow team they had out in comparison to the mighty Jaunards line-up. That said, Leinster will know that with a bit more composure with the many chances they created they could have drawn or even won the match.
