General News: Leo & Brian: True Blue Legends

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-29

"It's something unpredictable, but in the end is right,

I hope you had the time of your life." - Green Day

Get the hankies ready, because this is definitely it, the last time Leinster fans will get to see Leo Cullen or Brian O'Driscoll take the field in a competitive rugby match.

Match Preview: Leinster 'A' vs Leeds Carnegie RFC

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-22

Like the senior team with the Pro12, Leinster's second team also have a chance to successfully defend the trophy they won last year. This time however, they'll get a chance to do it at home in front of a bumper home crowd with Leinster's first team having no involvement in a European final for the first time since 2010.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-22

It hasn't been a vintage season for any of the Irish provinces. They all delivered big performances at one point in Europe, Leinster away to Northampton, Ulster away to Leicester/Montpellier, Munster at home to Toulouse and Connacht away to the same opponents. But none of them have really strung enough good performances together to really be happy with themselves. However a Pro12 league trophy would provide something tangible for the season.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-09

Well at least after last week's games, things are a lot simpler. Leinster need just two points to be sure of finishing top of the table ahead of Glasgow, so a draw will do them tomorrow. After losing to Leinster last week Ulster will definitely finish fourth, no matter what happens in their match against Munster. Munster for their part will be looking to win and for Glasgow to somehow drop points at home to Zebre. However more than likely we shall be looking at semi-finals of Leinster v Ulster and Glasgow v Munster next weekend.

Match Preview: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-01

Time to get the calculators out!

For most of the season, Ireland's top three provinces seemed to have the top three spots in the Pro12 locked down. It seemed that it would only be a matter of where each of Leinster, Munster and Ulster finished in the top three and that Glasgow and the Ospreys could squabble between each other for fourth place. This is no longer that case though.
