Match Preview: Leinster Rugby vs Glasgow Warriors

Leinster won a tougher than expected game last week against the Dragons to go five points clear at the top of Pool B.

The Dragons were game from the start and Leinster's discipline was poor as they handed the Dragons too many easy points. Every time the vastly superior Leinster pack got rumbling though, they eventually got over for a try. But the Dragons kept them honest and it was no bad thing to have a decently competitive game instead of another handy blowout.

After an unfamiliar couple of months, Leinster finally returned to the top of their pool with a comfortable win away in Llanelli.

They can't afford to rest on their laurels though as they're still only four points ahead of Ulster, who they will meet in Ravenhill in two weeks time. Before that they have Glasgow next week but first up it's a trip to the Dragons.

It's been a strange journey to having this match on the traditional last weekend of the European rugby pool stage. Covid initially saw the game scheduled for St. Stephen's Day postponed. But now because the last two weeks of the pool matches are postponed (or cancelled if you believe the English) we now have this weekend free and sure why not play Munster v Leinster?

Leinster's winning run in the tournament came to a crashing end when Connacht beat them convincingly last Saturday. Leinster's injury jinx struck again before and during the match and the backline had a particularly callow look by the end of the game.
