Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-09-15

Leinster crushed a weakened Edinburgh team 52-6 on a balmy Friday evening in the RDS. It was a cagey enough start as both teams got the measure of each other. Edinburgh were testing the Leinster defence but it held firm, a marked improvement on the previous week.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-09-12

Ah...Edinburgh! For most Irish people Edinburgh represents a city of great beauty, a place of great culture, the heart of the Scottish government or just a fine place to socialise for a weekend. For a certain subculture of Irish people however, Edinburgh represents nothing but misery, frustration and failure. In fact, it has been renamed "F***ing Edinburgh" by many of these fans; e.g. "Remember Leinster were going so well that season and then we went to f***ing Edinburgh!"

Match Report: Cardiff Blues vs Leinster Rugby

by Sarah Lennon, 2008-09-08

At last the waiting was over and the new rugby season began as the previous seasons top two went head to head at the Arms Park. There was a settled look to the Cardiff team with the major change being the assumption of the captaincy by the ginger Kiwi Paul Tito. Leinster had a new look to them however with new signing Isa Nacewa in at full back, Cameron Jowitt benefiting from a good pre-season by being selected in the back row, and Ronnie McCormack appearing in the front row after a bad time with injuries.

After a long, (not so) hot summer, Leinster fans can finally get their teeth into some competitive action again. There's been a lot of excitement during the summer on the transfer front particularly with the signings of world-class internationals Rocky Elsom and CJ van der Linde. However the capture of Isa Nacewa, though less heralded, may prove to be the pick of the bunch.

Review: Blood, Sweat & Beers

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-06-17

The 2007/08 season will always be a memorable one for Leinster fans. This was the season when they finally added some silverware to their trophy cabinet after six years of near things. It was a season of terrific highs (beating Leicester and Toulouse at home, doing the double over Munster) and crushing lows (a record hammering at home to Llanelli and losing away to Edinburgh, twice!). Yet it could be that this will be the season that fans look back on as a watershed, because it was the year that we finally found a pack that could stand up and grind out a win with the best of them.
