Match Report: Neath Swansea Ospreys vs Leinster Rugby

by Sarah Lennon, 2007-05-01

Leinster travelled to Wales for what was being dubbed a title decider. Leinster were missing Denis Hickie and Brian O'Driscoll and Ospreys had opted to rest James Hook with Shaun Connor deputising at out half. Leinster knew that four points would leave their destiny in their own hands while Ospreys were playing their last home game of the season and were looking to sign off with a win.

The Magners League Title Run-In

by Jim O'Connor, 2007-04-25

The Magners league format is a rarity in rugby these days in that there are no end of season play-offs to determine the champions.  It's a straight league format.  While traditionalists will insist that this is the best way of determining a league, it's major drawback is when one team romps away with it, there is no exciting finale.  Luckily for Magners/Celtic league though, this has only happened once in the four seasons of this format (in 2005 when the Ospreys ran away with it).  In 2004 and 2006, it went down to the wire on the last day of the season and it already looks like doing the same this year.

Match Preview: Newport Gwent Dragons vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2007-04-13

It's crunch-time for Leinster tonight. After last week's dismal defeat to Glasgow there's no longer any room for manoeuvre. They need to win their last four games if they want to win the Magners League. Okay, if certain results go their way three wins may suffice, but it would be very dangerous to think like that. They've got to think of the four games as four cup finals. If they're properly motivated, four wins are possible, but the "motivation" question is key.
