Didn’t start so well, but finding our feet now. Getting some impressively quick ball now. Scrum looked very strong in the first two outings.

Bit gloomy looking on the far side of the pitch, some lights not working?

Does look very dark on the far side in fairness. Not sure what’s going on there.

Both teams with blitz defences that were going well for a while but have left gaps. Leinster punching it up better when there's no way around.

Brilliant from DK in the maul there, got right in beside JT to cut the Scarlets guy off just before we broke away.

Another rule change I must have missed. Since when is a tip tackle no longer a yellow.

The amount of times our lineout gets confused and doesn't even get a man in the air is criminal.

Terrible lineout. Loads of movement but all at the back so Scarlets knew they just had to put someone up in front and we’d have to go over them.

Byrne and Frawley have done well so so far imo. Scarlets are hammering up on the outside and both have made good decisions to hold onto the ball and recycle, not putting turner or a winger in danger.

Harry has pushed the pass twice when we've had a bit of go forward, but both have been warranted.

That is beautiful work. Excellent stuff to shift it there from Molony and the pack.

That's what you can do with a functioning lineout.

Turner is being a real nuisance, he’s fighting for everything.

Thought the exact same, he's having a really good defensive game.

Lovely stuff.

Tell you what, there is a good shout that Ross Molony should be in our 23 at least for big games.

Lineout looks far more composed with him, he's a threat on opposition ball and his carrying/defence is looking really strong.

Outshining Baird here.

I'd say Turner is a real pain in the hole for scarlets the way he's wiggling himself into any nearby ruck

Harry decided on two occasions against passing because of the danger of an interception. He's having a very good game. HIs kicking - all sorts - is top notch.

Lovely restarts from HB, he could give Jonny a few tips. Great seeing Jack Conan back putting in a big shift. Its a shame that Luke is taking a step but he did do well for Kelliher try. Nice finish on that one
