Match Report: Saracens vs Leinster Rugby

by Stephen Devine, 2011-08-23

Without a win on the road this season and without talisman Brian O'Driscoll, the majority of Leinster fans travelled to Wembley more in hope than in expectation. The London venue became the 91st to hold a Heineken Cup game and with an impressive attendance of 45,892, you can understand why Saracens moved the match to the home of English soccer.

Leinster and Saracens will meet tomorrow for the first time ever in a competitive match.

Leinster take on Munster on Saturday evening in the first competitive rugby match to be played at the redeveloped Lansdowne Road. Leinster have essentially ceded home advantage in order to cash in on the fixture's widespread appeal, although in the current economic climate you can't really blame them. There's no doubt though that Munster players and supporters will be far happier coming to the bright and shiny Aviva, rather than to the RDS where they've only won once. Last season they endured one of their worst defeats as a professional team there, when they lost 30-0. It was one of four consecutive defeats to Leinster in which Munster didn't even score a try. Munster will be absolutely desperate to bring that losing streak to an end and judging on recent form, they've every right to be confident.
