Outstanding win by Leinster man of the match preformences all over the field and hard to pick out one guy real team win

Odran John OBrien

Solid, professional stuff. With a mix 'n match squad out that was hugely encouraging. Our back row depth is frankly ridiculous. Dom Ryan must be quietly crying in his beer.

Derek Tormey

Amazing what a backline with a bit of youth can do. Totally murdered their pack. Only negative again we left a bonus behind.

Chris Mcdonnell

Loving the young players coming through and showing their up to the challenge. Start of the next era !!!!

Colin Campbell

Good win taking in the 6 day turn around and enforced changes

Noel Hewson

Delighted with that. We actually started quite poorly and were according them far too much respect. Turning point for me in the match was about 25 min. in after SO'B had seen yellow, Connacht with the extra man go to run it, send the ball out the backs and Rory O'Loughlin clatters Aki with a tremendous tackle, driving him back about ten yards and putting him on his ass. From that point on we never looked like losing. Well done to all involved. (Line outs need a bit of work though...)

Riocard Ó Tiarnaigh

Forward pass for the try and the linesman bottled it. Leinster line speed was savage ' that was the winning of the game for ye. We (Connacht ) were well below Form and lacking the final pass as well as getting back on par around the breakdown . We are still missing a Muldowney type of lock. Carberry was super a gem of a player.

John O Halloran

Fine second half, things coming along nicely.

Pádraig Turley

Best side won

Paul Smith

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
