Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Scarlets

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-09-12

It was back to normal for Leinster last week as they lost their opening day fixture. Last season, they broke a tradition stretching back years that Leinster must lose on the road the first day out with a very entertaining win over the Scarlets. This raised expectations for a season of enterprising rugby that was rarely borne out. So last week was a return to tradition with a rubbish performance that there can only be improvement from (hopefully).

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-30

Leinster take on Glasgow Warriors tomorrow evening looking to be become the first team to retain the Celtic League/Magners League/Pro12/whatever you're having yourself trophy. Whatever it's been called, Leinster have been in every Grand Final since the league switched to the play-off structure in 2009. Of the five finals, four have been in the RDS, although last year's was only switched to there as Ravenhill's redevelopment wasn't complete in time.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Ulster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-22

It hasn't been a vintage season for any of the Irish provinces. They all delivered big performances at one point in Europe, Leinster away to Northampton, Ulster away to Leicester/Montpellier, Munster at home to Toulouse and Connacht away to the same opponents. But none of them have really strung enough good performances together to really be happy with themselves. However a Pro12 league trophy would provide something tangible for the season.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Edinburgh Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-09

Well at least after last week's games, things are a lot simpler. Leinster need just two points to be sure of finishing top of the table ahead of Glasgow, so a draw will do them tomorrow. After losing to Leinster last week Ulster will definitely finish fourth, no matter what happens in their match against Munster. Munster for their part will be looking to win and for Glasgow to somehow drop points at home to Zebre. However more than likely we shall be looking at semi-finals of Leinster v Ulster and Glasgow v Munster next weekend.

Match Preview: Ulster Rugby vs Leinster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-05-01

Time to get the calculators out!

For most of the season, Ireland's top three provinces seemed to have the top three spots in the Pro12 locked down. It seemed that it would only be a matter of where each of Leinster, Munster and Ulster finished in the top three and that Glasgow and the Ospreys could squabble between each other for fourth place. This is no longer that case though.
