Match Preview: Newport Gwent Dragons vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-05-08

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.

Either way, Leinster will be determined to win their final home game of the season and put on a display for the big crowd.

Match Preview: Edinburgh Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-04-21

We're nearly there! Leinster face Edinburgh tomorrow night with a chance to reclaim the Magners/Celtic League six years after they claimed the inaugural event. To win the championship Leinster will need to win with four-try bonus point. This would leave them on 59 points, a total only Munster could still theoretically match, but Leinster would have 13 wins, a total Munster would fall short of even if they win all their remaining games.
