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.
I'd like to say to certain naysayers of just 9 or 10 games ago calling for Leo's head..... still feel the same? What about the comment by an individual on here the other day about how annoyed he was by the selection and we didn't need a hiding at the RDS????? Want to change your opinion? Only one team received a hiding today..... BATH RUGBY!
Are we there yet? Not by any means! Does it bother me that we will lose Madigan, Moore and especially T'eo for next season? Course it does. There will be a plan though.......
Today there were awesome dogged performances from Ruddock Tracey Furlong Dooley Kearney T'eo MOTM Moloney and of course Isa. A fantastic display and yes we had a few try chances in the 1st half however a little white line fever came in lol...... but they kept going.
Bottom line was this was a great team effort and belief from a Leinster "Developmental" side who above all showed real pride. #COYBIB
@HarpinOnRugby enjoyed that game. Young (& old) guys really steeped up today. Lots to be positive about. Youthful infusion energising squad.

I complained about the selection and I was wrong. 100% wrong. And have never been more delighted to have been. Not a single player let us down. They all lived up to the jersey and deserved the result. We were by far the better team and it was great to see. It's been a while since I've seen the RDS that raucous. Long may it continue!

Delighted for Cullen's Cubs! Risk taken and paid off!!! Now if we could only do something about Sean Cronin's darts.....

Gr8 day at the office for Leinster, couple of very promising young players on display, also some quality older players finding good form

Yeah very good signs for the future. They were very hungry at the breakdown and ferocious in the tackle. Some super line breaks from the backs.
A lot better than we were at the start of the season, that's for sure!
So, er, we got it wrong about that Leinster team. What a performance! Hope springs eternal. Ross Moloney, some work rate and grunt.

Leo undoing all the harm MOC did bit by bit. Kids coming through, playing better rugby. Looking forward to Ross Molony captaining Leinster to three European Cup wins just like the gaffer. What a player
Mike Ford complaining about tackle off the ball on Chris Cook but reasonably concedes otherwise his side were well-beaten. A sad decline

We still lack the killer instinct when we get into the 22. needs to be worked on
That's a good win from Leinster. Nothing to play for, other than smacking Bath out of the comp. Bath gone....

The youngsters certainly put down a marker for the established players. The hard work at the academy level is paying off. Great showing today.
Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
