Rugby Opinion

Couldn't help but think about Keatley's intercept last season in the aviva. One word: Revenge.

A massively better performance than we've seen in the last number of weeks. World Cup hangover starting to ease it seems. Defending was excellent the whole game and in particular in the second half. Ringrose had a great match and looked like himself and Luke were a good 12/13 partnership. Early days on that one, but I'd go with that for the next number of games to let it gel... After the dodgy start, now third in the table. Not a bad way to end the calendar year and always a nice day when you beat Munster in Thomond Smile

Well done Leinster .. by far the better team .. Munster are clueless but does not detract from your seems anyone can beat Munster ... our season is over .. just awful ..

Great game the young guns really showed they deserve their place in the team

Heaslip my MOTM. Whenever we needed a big turnover he was there making it happen.

When Munster started to get the nudge on in the scrum he was there ensuring we held on to it. He got through so much work.

Tracy and Molony both looked good off the bench. Fitz and Ringrose in the centre looked dangerous. Seanie is back.

A word of caution though, we can't afford teams so much possession and territory. Munster struggled to do anything with it but better teams will hurt us, even with a good defence like we have.

Brilliant finish for Leinster!!! #Proud

Lot of problems Munster have! Poor recruitment combine that with our best 10 Hanrahan being pushed out! We have 2 coaches who are both novices (Flannery, Mick O Driscoll) who have never held coaching positions before backing up our only experienced coach Foley! We have serious issues in how we recruit, select and train our underage talent using a system that is grossly inferior to Leinster, Ulster and Connacht's! Our Chairman Garret Fitzgerald needs to address these issues! The Munster supporters are beginning to boo he is taking our loyalty for granted! We will always support Munster but we might not always support HIM!!!! expect more boos until these issues are dealt with! Having said that Leinster were worthy winners and played much better than previously so congrats to them

Great impact by Moloney off the bench with two crucial line out steals. He's definitely ahead of Denton in my pecking order!!!!
