Leinster Rugby vs Munster Rugby

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-10-03

Rarely has a Leinster-Munster inter-pro derby been approached by both sides with such gloom. Every time we hear the sports news it's seems another player is being sent for surgery. This week it was Sean O'Brien for Leinster and Keith Earls for Munster which will rule them out for large chunks of the season. Both players have been haunted by injury in recent seasons and you have the awful sense that two of Ireland's brightest talents are slowly being lost to us.

Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Cardiff Blues

by Jim O'Connor, 2014-09-25

Leinster suffered another one of those annoying defeats in Galway last week. After a pretty handy win over the Scarlets, they actually started the game extremely well and looked set to steamroller Connacht through the pack. However the early momentum was lost through a series of mistakes from the half-backs and Connacht showed immense guts to hang on in there.

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.
