Online comments after Wasps v Leinster

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.

Rugby Opinion

Nothing to play for while wasps had everything to play for. Was always going to be a tough day at office. Lads gave up not long before HT. Disappointed but not worried.

Damien J Doherty

There's no sugar coating it, Leinster were atrocious today and the European season has largely been a write-off. The focus now is obviously the PRO12 but the lads can learn from this experience (especially Cullens Cubs) and try again next October.

Cian Ormond

Seriously though, we need a forwards coach. Our maul is a shambles. And Noel Reid should never play at this level again. He was all at sea defensively at times and wasn't exactly convincing in the tackle. There was nothing to play for and once that penalty try was awarded the lads seemed to switch off. Still though, 51 points is not acceptable. Under any circumstances.

John Molloy

Let it never again be said that that's our first choice pack. The youngsters are significantly better rugby players than the guys out today. Cronin, Moore, Toner, Ruddock, Murphy, Heaslip, Reddan, Kirchner, Rob Kearney- these guys are all coasting; no way are they worthy of their place on the Leinster team at the moment, let alone Ireland.
Not only have we recorded what I believe to be the worst result in the history of the club today, but we may well have knocked our fellow Irishmen from Ulster out in the process.
Shameful stuff...

My girls came in from their matches today in bits , muddied , bruised and major stud marks on their legs . Not one complaint or excuse , they bust themselves playing . Its not exactly the glittering heights of European rugby , but they approach it as if it is so . I think Leinster have forgotten what matters . Skill heart and ambition .

How much longer do we have to put up with Sean Cronin's coughing up possession via a crooked throw at the line out? Another such **** up at the start of the second half set us on the road to disaster! Reid should be dumped for his unwillingness to tackle. Letting Madigan leave for France could prove to be a major miscalculation, if concussion does for Sexton's career (and currently, people, it's not looking good...) Horrified by today's second half performance!!!!

Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh

Leinster had the equivalent of a good tier two international team in the way of internationals and experience. They lost to a efficient English club side with two ex Leinster players in their team. The resources and player experience we have we're not reflected in that performance.

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
