Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-09-12

Ah...Edinburgh! For most Irish people Edinburgh represents a city of great beauty, a place of great culture, the heart of the Scottish government or just a fine place to socialise for a weekend. For a certain subculture of Irish people however, Edinburgh represents nothing but misery, frustration and failure. In fact, it has been renamed "F***ing Edinburgh" by many of these fans; e.g. "Remember Leinster were going so well that season and then we went to f***ing Edinburgh!"

by Sarah Lennon, 2008-09-08

At last the waiting was over and the new rugby season began as the previous seasons top two went head to head at the Arms Park. There was a settled look to the Cardiff team with the major change being the assumption of the captaincy by the ginger Kiwi Paul Tito.

Is it over already? It doesn't seem eight months ago that Leinster welcomed Edinburgh to the redeveloped RDS for the first match of the season. Twenty five games later, we're looking at the final match of what has been ultimately a successful season. There were bad times obviously with the Heineken Cup exit at the Group stages. But the way the squad regrouped and won the Magners League showed a focus and consistency not seen in previous seasons. Leinster fans are already looking forward to next season with genuine belief and confidence in the squad.

Match Report: Leinster Rugby vs Newport Gwent Dragons

by Sarah Lennon, 2008-05-06

Following Cardiff's win against Connacht on Friday night, Leinster went into this game knowing that they would have to do it themselves or at least clinch a bonus point in order to secure the Magners League title. There was a carnival atmosphere at the RDS, however it was tinged in the sadness that accompanied the departure of Keith Gleeson and Ollie le Roux, both of whom were off to sunnier climes.
