Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Connacht Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2017-12-31

Well, well, well, wasn't that a lovely Christmas present!

Hands up, I certainly didn't fancy Leinster's chances on St Stephen's Day against a near first-choice Munster side. The home team looked like they agreed and turned up like the game was already won. But the young Leinster side took advantage of Munster's insipid first half performance and in taking them for 27 points in the first forty, they laid the ground for a fantastic win.

Leinster made life very hard for themselves last week against Exeter with a rubbish first half performance. But they showed some character at least to recover in the second half and earn the win to put them back in pole position.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Dragons

by Jim O'Connor, 2017-11-23

Leinster are back after a three week break. Their last game saw them defeated away to Glasgow. On paper it looks a tough task to win away to Glasgow, but Leinster actually started the game really well. They were left to rue a disastrous ten minute spell in the first half though when weak defending allowed Glasgow to run in three tries. Leinster had the advantage up front and they dominated possession in the second half but a lack of leadership and some desperate decision making meant they went home with nothing. The defeat meant they dropped back behind Ulster into third place in Conference B.

Last week's game against Ulster was a nice surprise. It was fairly even in the first half but Leinster took command and played the conditions well in the second half to pull away for their first win in Belfast for three years.
