Great determined team effort. First win in league at Ospreys in 7 years. AWESOME to see Leinster going for BP try in last minute. That's the way to do it!
Has to be said, Jonathan Sexton was outstanding tonight. Kicking game was imperious. Running back into form right on cue for the Six Nations

Jonny's best game (so far) of his Leinster career Version 2.0. Strong defence again. Very poor refereeing from Wilkinson though, especially at scrum time
@HarpinOnRugby Isn't it fantastic to see our defence back being stingy feckers again.

Consider that 'Turning The Corner' idea they've been kicking about rubber stamped. That D is only getting better by the week, you could have arguments with yourself over the best starter in more positions than not, and going for the bonus? What a display of the positive headspace they're in now. Loving it.

@HarpinOnRugby And Sextons form continuing to improve. Was excellent tonight in poor conditions. Big win. Delighted with that.

A very solid performance from the boys. With the exception of the 3rd quarter they dominated that match. Very clinical when they needed to be, extremely accurate kicking game with JS getting back to his standards . Good game management, which was lacking in the early part of the season. Now to restore some honour in the Champions Cup! A very pleased and happy (Leinster) bunny tonight #COYBIB
Shame on me...I forgot to mention the basis for our current success, the huge D. Our thanks to Maestro McQuilkin
@HarpinOnRugby It was a good game to send a strong side to play in. Two things achieved. Progress in Pro12 and brakes on O's.

We held a shotgun to our feet for 30 mins in the second half. Other than that very good performance in awful conditions. Sexton gave a masterclass with the boot and Dave looks to be in fine form and Isa is looking more and more like the old Isa each week. Some great stuff from him today. Our defence has been fantastic too. Top of the table with 3 Italian games yet to play puts us in a great position.

Great win, great effort from the boys. Not sure if I'm a fan of bringing Madigan on for 3 minutes again total disrespect for a true blue.
Asked for our back 3 to get some tries and up stepped Dave.
Sexton had his best game.
Only worry was we kicked time and time again, I know the conditions helped a kicking game but apart from Teo running the ball was not great.
Can't have too many issues with that display! Defence solid as ever & the finishing in those conditions was sublime. #OSPvLEIN
