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.
If you’d like to contribute stay tuned to our Facebook page for our “Feel free to leave your thoughts…” posts which show up around full time after Leinster & Ireland matches.
Can anyone remember 3 & a half years ago when we won our third Heineken cup in 4 years?
Losing @seanobrien1987 was the nail in the coffin already struggling without @KearneyRob @Lukefitz11 + Te'o

An unhealthy mix of cynicism from wasps and desperate play from Leinster.
Phases in opposition 22 Leinster 33 Wasps 1 Leinster 6 - 26 Wasps

They need to play Teo at 12 and Ringrose at 13 when Teo is fit again. Our two best attacking players both play the same position. I've defended Heaslip for years(justifiably so) but he is done. SOB to 8,Van der Flier at 7. Healy I'm afraid looks done too. Not a slant on Healy or Heaslip but they are nowhere near the players they were. Heaslip has played too many games and Healy has had too many bad injuries.

@HarpinOnRugby more errors in that game than the entirety of last season!

I brought the baby to the game. She fell asleep. The way Leinster played I'm not overly surprised. There's such potential in that team, none of it was achieved.
Apparently about 200 Leinster at ticket office demanding their money back. Muck

I better keep my opinion to myself....
Utterly shambolic from Craig Doyle on BT Sport suggesting all Ulster fans love seeing Leinster get beat. What a ridiculous statement.

I'm struggling to remember a European performance at home in the last 15 years where we looked do poor and were beaten so badly. Maybe Leicester in 2005 but that was a fine Tigers team
@HarpinOnRugby This is embarrassing

Actually held the ball well for periods, dominated possesion and our younger players played well. Our big players did not, nor did they play with too much imtelligence. Wasps defended really well and we butchered a number of chances through poor passing. It was the classic fault in Irish rugby we undo the good play by one poor pass or kick.
@HarpinOnRugby There's certain games when you could play for 36 hrs solid and you'll keep going backwards... Today is such a game! @Richmif

Players have to take the blame, there were enough international players on the pitch to put up a decent effort. Form all season has been below par so far. Hope things improve.
@stranglemint @BarrettBigFan they hadn't set world alight in P12 but there was no sign indication they would be so poor today.

I'm lost for words
Congrats to Wasps. Tidy away performance beats a shambolic home one. #COYBIB
