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.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-11-18

With the sorry state of the national team at the moment, Leinster fans will be glad to get back to the RDS tomorrow night as the Magners League resumes after a three-week break. Leinster face the Dragons looking to extend their winning run to six games and continue their march up the table. In their last match, they beat Edinburgh to successfully complete their 'perfect October' with five wins from five games. It was far from pretty but when you considered the relative strength of the two teams, no one was complaining (unless you were a hysterical, comically ill-informed media pundit of course!)

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-10-31

Leinster meet Edinburgh tomorrow evening at the RDS hoping to make it a perfect October with five wins from five. Circumstances have made this task a lot tougher though. As Ireland play South Africa next weekend, Leinster are severely depleted by players held back by the Irish management. Normally Edinburgh would be in the same boat but as Scotland don't have a match until the 13th of November they have full access to their players this week.

Match Preview: Connacht Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2010-10-22

From 45,000 people in Wembley Stadium to between 4,000 and 5,000 people in the Sportsground, it's very much back to basics for Leinster this weekend. They've had a better start to their Heineken Cup campaign than they would have dared to dream of, but that now has to be parked until December. Between then and now they have five Magners League fixtures and they'll be looking to improve their position of eighth in the table.
