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.

After winning ten games in a row, Leinster have now lost two on the bounce after the Ospreys beat them last Friday evening.

The gift to Irish rugby that is Joe Schmidt just keeps on giving. On the foot on his unprecedented success as Leinster coach, he has now delivered a Six Nations championship in his first season in the Ireland job. Hopefully it's only a start too and there's a lot more success to come the way of the Ireland team in the next few seasons. It was also wonderful to see Brian O'Driscoll finish his Ireland career with another medal around his neck.
