Match Report: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Sarah Lennon, 2009-03-09

The teams in second and third place took each other on with both vying to take the top spot at least until Munster's match on Saturday. Leinster fielded a strong team with only one change from the victory over Scarlets a fortnight ago with Jackman replacing Brian Blaney. Leinster were missing only Brian O'Driscoll, Luke Fitzgerald, Rob Kearney and Jamie Heaslip to the national team, while Ospreys were missing a dozen players to the Welsh setup.

Match Preview: Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

It's another week off from the tension of Ireland's Grand Slam campaign, but there'll be no respite for Leinster. Like two weeks ago, they have a trip to Wales and once again it's a vital match in their quest to win back to back Magners League championships. Victory will put them ahead of the second placed Ospreys and will put them top of the table (if only for twenty fours hours with Munster playing the Dragons on Saturday). It's quite a position for Leinster to be in, considering their chances were widely written off after they lost to Glasgow back in October. However they still have to do the business this weekend to capitalise on their recent winning streak.

It seems an age since Leinster last played in the Magners League against Cardiff and certainly a lot of water has passed under the bridge since. Leinster secured a Heineken Cup quarter-final (albeit in the most excruciatingly tense manner imaginable) and Ireland have made their best start to a Six Nations in years. It would be tempting to downplay the importance of this fixture, however it's still a vital game for Leinster's hopes of retaining their championship.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Cardiff Blues

by Jim O'Connor, 2009-01-09

The next two weeks represents the critical stage of Leinster's season. By the afternoon of Sunday the 25th they could be looking forward to a Heineken Cup Quarter-final while enjoying a position in the top two of the Magners League table. On the other hand, should results go another way, they could be out of Europe at the group stages for the second season running and stuck in the middle of the Magners table. The results of the next three matches against Cardiff, Wasps and Edinburgh will not only define their season, they could also define the Leinster career of coach Michael Cheika!
