Match Preview: Connacht Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-01-01

After a momentous 2009, Leinster travel to Galway for their first match of 2010. The Sportsground is always a tough venue to visit and Leinster endured a lot of close calls in recent years before finally losing there last season. On that occasion Leinster had travelled with a weakened team and it's the same this time with several top men rested, Brian O'Driscoll, Rob Kearney and Jamie Heaslip the most notable. Connacht rested some of their star men for the timid defeat away to Munster so it's clear they're targeting this one. So Leinster are up against it tomorrow.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-12-24

Leinster return to the Magners League after a very successful two weeks in the Heineken Cup. Two wins and 10 points was exactly what was needed to bring Leinster's campaign back to life and they achieved them with some style. It must be said, it felt like the old days seeing Leinster running in a hatful of tries again. Some might say that the Scarlets' defence was weak, but in recent times Leinster have played worse teams than them but failed to score tries.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Scarlets

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-12-18

After losing their first Heineken Cup match at home to London Irish, Leinster knew they had to win both away games in Brive and Llanelli. They achieved that with some style and played some fantastic rugby along the way. However they now have to back that up with a return to the home form that has made the RDS such a formidable venue in recent years in Europe.

Leinster return to Heineken Cup action tomorrow with a tough trip to Llanelli. After Leinster lost at home to London Irish their next two fixtures became must-win matches. They accomplished the first part with some style away to Brive, now they have to produce a similar performance in Wales. But make no mistake, the Scarlets are up for this match!

Match Preview: Newport Gwent Dragons vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-12-04

Leinster return to action this Sunday after an Autumn International campaign that was rewarding but costly. Leinster have three new internationals caps in Cian Healy, Jonny Sexton and Sean O'Brien, but unfortunately injuries have cost us Sexton in the short-term and Luke Fitzgerald for probably the rest of the season. Losing Fitzgerald, our top try scorer for the past two seasons is a huge setback but the cover we have in the back three softens the blow somewhat. In terms of Sexton though, options are a little thinner on the ground.
