Online comments after #EDIvLEI

In a new regular feature this season we’ll be sharing some of the initial “keyboard warrior” response to our featured matches of the weekend ahead of our writeup.

Rugby Opinion

Early days, but the pack have picked up where they left off last season. The breakdown was a disaster. We only scraped the LBP because Edinburgh couldn't convert their chances. We earned nothing but a yellow card out there.


Very few players performed on the Leinster team tonight. Fanning awful, Reid pretty ordinary, senior players like McCarthy and Boss showed exactly why they aren't on the Irish squad. All in all pretty shitty.

Take a deep breath and count to 5. Games that is. It'll be that long before we really know where we're at. Remember how Joe's first season started? A match where we threw away a 10 point lead, away in Scotland. Besides, when it worked tonight, in fits and starts, there was some decent attacking shape and some solid defending. More of that and some focus on the rucking and it'll come good.

Not blaming the ref but he's a whistle happy fecker.
It's like watching don baker play the harmonica

Boss and fanning were shocking,
Reid either starts tackling or he'll end up on the scrap heap.
Leo threw on the subs far too early. No need to replace McGrath and Hagen.
The defence was very good.
Isa trying kicks from the half way line was a silly. Putting those two kicks into the 22 and put them under real pressure should have been the call.
Seriously need to sort out attack.
Delighted to see so many young players get a chance just need to sort out a few problems

Oh Dan Leavy was really really good

Ulster were fantastic :-)
