Match Report: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by gfo, 2009-10-27

After a stellar performance against Munster earlier in the year, the European champions failed to impress during their trip to Ravenhill for the second of the Irish Derbies. In front of a shivering crowd of 11,523, Leinster lost out to Ulster in a poor 16-14 defeat. Although tries from Berne and Fitzgerald left Leinster able to walk away with a bonus point, another strong performance from Ian Humphries and a try from Isaac Boss gave the Ulstermen the edge, putting them on top of the table with a one point lead over Leinster.

Match Preview: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

With their Heineken Cup campaign back on track, Leinster travel to Ravenhill for a top of the table clash with second placed Ulster. Last week's game against Brive was a must-win match and win Leinster did, comprehensively so. There was the odd grumble afterwards that a bonus point went begging, but such was the importance of the win most fans would have taken a one-point win beforehand, never mind a 23 point victory. The Scarlets shock win over a complacent London Irish side opens up the group again, although winning in Wales next time out will be still just as important.

Leinster's Heineken Cup defence got off to the worst possible start on Friday night with a 9-12 defeat to superb London Irish. It is a cardinal rule of the HEC that in order to reach the knockout stages of the competition you must win your home games, and Leinster now have a mountain to climb if they're going to reach the quarter finals of the competition.
