Ross B looking a bit flaky at the moment. Needs to sharpen up

Thought that was a harsh call. He had cleared the path for the ball to come back and Tracey was locked on. Should have been a penalty to Leinster.

What a try.

Mont missed touch twice which totally suits us.

High ball in play time is what we want.

Dooley having some game.

O’Brien’s kicking game has been top notch. Adds another dimension to our counter attack. Looks comfortable at this level.

Be amazed if their 3 or 5 last the game without a yellow

Luke McGrath superb so far.

And I don’t know why I or anyone was worried about the scrum: Bent has been quietly perhaps the best scrummaging tighthead in Ireland for a few years.

Luke M having an incredible game. He's feckin everywhere.

Dooley, Dev and VDF really good too.

It's a fantastic performance. Maybe we won't need that bench after all!

That has to be one of the best first half, away in France performances ever. Unbelievable stuff. I thought this Montpellier pack was supposed to be good?

Big lineout turnover there from Fardy. So important to not concede in that scenario.

McGrath's coverplay and tackling has been top notch. A nice break earlier on too

We look by far the smarter, well coached and more cohesive side.

Our coaching team has clearly spent the last 3 weeks wisely.
