Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-09-11

Last week's opening game against the Scarlets will be filed under "Ones that got away". Going into the game, defeat was not considered an impossibility by any means but the way they lost was quite surprising. We've seen Leinster start seasons slowly before and struggle to get any pattern into their game, but Leinster actually played very well in the first half. The pack was dominating, Jonny Sexton was kicking beautifully and the backline was working well. After half an hour they led 16-7 and were facing thirteen men, due to the Scarlets indiscipline.

For the second season running Leinster conclude their Magners League campaign in Rodney Parade against the Dragons.  Last season's match was played the week after Leinster had lifted the Magners League trophy.  It was a really good, free-flowing match played in a fun atmosphere.  This season though, it very much serves as the appetizer to the main course next week in Edinburgh.

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs Scarlets

by Sarah Lennon, 2009-05-11

Leinster took on the Scarlets in a match that could have been a mouth-watering one had both sides not seen their league ambitions ended prematurely. As it was there were very different prizes in mind for both teams. For Scarlets it was their two Lions who would be looking to put in a performance to secure them a Test place against the Springboks and for the rest of the team Heineken Cup qualification was on their minds. For Leinster it was all about building momentum for the biggest game of many of their lives.
