Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-12-02

With Ireland's seemingly never ending Autumn International series finally drawing to an close this Sunday, Leinster provide the after-dinner entertainment as they take on the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium. With one eye on that match, Leinster coach Joe Schmidt will have the rosary beads out just praying it doesn't cost him any more players. Rob Kearney and Luke Fitzgerald will now miss the Clermont double header as they both picked up knee injuries last week and won't be back until the New Year at the earliest. Any more injuries and the backline will be stretched to breaking point so it's vital that above all else, Leinster's backs stay healthy this weekend.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-11-18

With the sorry state of the national team at the moment, Leinster fans will be glad to get back to the RDS tomorrow night as the Magners League resumes after a three-week break. Leinster face the Dragons looking to extend their winning run to six games and continue their march up the table. In their last match, they beat Edinburgh to successfully complete their 'perfect October' with five wins from five games. It was far from pretty but when you considered the relative strength of the two teams, no one was complaining (unless you were a hysterical, comically ill-informed media pundit of course!)
