Match Report: Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

by William Wilson, 2010-12-06

I started last week's match report by acknowledging the effort made by Leinster fans to get to the match in Wales. This week it was another trip to Wales and with the deterioration in the weather there were more tales of travel woes from the dedicated Leinster support. Stories of people nine hours in the airport still not getting there and UK based fans turning back when their window wipers gave up on the M4 have appeared on the forum. Fair play to both those who tried and those who succeeded - and there were definitely some who succeeded.

Match Preview: Scarlets vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-12-06

Despite the arctic weather conditions, Leinster's game against the Scarlets tomorrow evening seems set to go ahead at this point. Despite their current injury problems and the way the weather has disrupted their preparations, Leinster will be desperate to play the match with their crucial Heineken Cup double-header against Clermont coming up next. Joe Schmidt may need to get new rosary beads though as the ones he used last week clearly didn't work. There were more injuries to outside backs as first Brian O'Driscoll fractured his jaw against Argentina and then Andrew Conway suffered a neck injury in the defeat to the Ospreys. Thankfully neither of the injuries are too serious and both players should be back within a month but it does leave the backline resources looking very stretched.

Match Report: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by William Wilson, 2010-12-01

It was a small group of Leinster fans that travelled to Osprelia for last weekend's Magner's league clash between Ospreys and Leinster, a journey made all the more difficult by the weather. Between delays at Dublin airport and poor driving conditions on the UK roads great effort was made to attend.

Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-12-02

With Ireland's seemingly never ending Autumn International series finally drawing to an close this Sunday, Leinster provide the after-dinner entertainment as they take on the Ospreys at the Liberty Stadium. With one eye on that match, Leinster coach Joe Schmidt will have the rosary beads out just praying it doesn't cost him any more players. Rob Kearney and Luke Fitzgerald will now miss the Clermont double header as they both picked up knee injuries last week and won't be back until the New Year at the earliest. Any more injuries and the backline will be stretched to breaking point so it's vital that above all else, Leinster's backs stay healthy this weekend.

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

by William Wilson, 2010-11-22

With Irish rugby caught up in ticket price and selection debates and die-hard fans watching an underfilled Lansdowne road on the TV there was almost a sense of relief among Leinster fans to be returning to the bread and butter of Magners league on a Friday night in the RDS. Leinster were looking to extend their five match unbeaten run in the Magners against third from bottom Dragons, but with Leinster hit much harder by international call-ups than the Welsh side the outcome was far from a foregone conclusion.
