Match Preview: Glasgow Warriors vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2008-10-23

Last Saturday was probably the proudest day to be a Leinster fan since the Toulouse quarter-final over two years ago. A thirty-point, six tries to one win over the star-ladden English champions. I think it's fair to say most Leinster fans would have taken that at the start of the match. It was a truly fantastic day in which the home crowd really played their part. Leinster now stand in pole position at the top of their pool with maximum points.

Match Report: Connacht Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Sarah Lennon, 2008-10-09

Leinster travelled to the Sportsgrounds to take on Connacht hoping to banish memories of the previous Sunday's defeat to Munster. Leinster haven't always had it all their own way in Galway, and the previous season's corresponding fixture was a tight affair settled in part from a second half try by Shane Horgan.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Munster Rugby

There is no doubt Leinster Rugby loves days like this. It won't be long before Van Morrisson is asked to perform on the half way line as the stadium announcer reads out the teams. Great pleasure was taken in hijacking the official site last Monday, loudly boasting the game was "sold out". Leinster versus Munster is big league now. The 18,500 people will make this the most viewed game anywhere in home nations (excluding the Twickenham scramble) so far this season.
