Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ospreys

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-09-19

The Magners League has traditionally awoken from its' summer slumber like a grouchy, arthritic old man. It didn't want to be rushed, it wanted to stretch it's legs a little, have a cup of tea and a general dodder about before getting going. This was in a large part due to the Irish management teams' policy of slowly drip-feeding the internationals back in the provincial teams. So September was pretty much a month of development teams with sprinkling of internationals and the quality of the rugby wasn't great.

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.

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.

Match Report: Cardiff Blues vs Leinster Rugby

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.
