Rugby Opinion

Happy to get the result shame we didn't get the bonus point but I'd have taken 25-14 before kick off. Thought sexton and nacewa were both superb

Shane O' Brien

Leinster the better side on the day but that second try was a forward pass. Munster were lacking in ideas and seemed incapable of going forward. Compared to last night's game it wasn't much to look at!

Imelda Reidy

As a neutral leinster were the better team munster and ulster have the same problem munster have a strong pack but the backline are needs improvement ulster have a scary back line but the pack needs improvement leinster have both at the moment 4pp suftum

Chris Toole

From the Munster perspective, we made too many mistakes. Leinster better on the day, but partly aided and abetted by Munster errors. Neither side can be overly optimistic heading into Europe...

Mark Barry

I got the impression that Leinster were playing very much within themselves. Munster could do little with their possession - very blunt and the Leinster defense held well.

Alison Moore

I support neither 'watching as a neutral Connacht fan , Leinster were the better on the day . But that said a bit of a let down by Darby standards. The only players that I thought brought anything to the game was Sexton, Ringrose and a Stander. The 2 best teams played last night . If Kearney, Zebo, o Mahony Toner make the Autumn series ahead of the in Form Connacht and Ulster players I give up.

John O Halloran

Happy enough with that. We only went asleep for about 10mins. We have a very potent 10-12-13 and I can't wait to see them play together again next week. Henshaw is an absolute horse in defence. Ben who?

Thought we looked far better when J. McGrath,Treacy, Molony and Leavy came on although our back row were poor in the first half until O'Mahony went off. We didn't protect the breakdown well enough. McGrath did a great Flappy Bird impression.

Cormac Mannion

Munster seem to be able to get possession but don't know what to do when they do, Leinster on the other hand struggled for possession at times but their attack is more potent

Garrett Mccolgan

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
