Good performance, will be great to have all the internationals back next week. I'd be worried if I were a Northampton fan...
Joey C off after 45mins. We know who is starting in Northampton now then. #LEIvNGD— Brian Donnelly (@bptd1234) December 3, 2016
Great start. Once we secured the bonus point we took our foot off the gas. Cost me 100 quid Dragons last try. Had Leinster -14 😈

Great enterprising attacking performance, some quality young players making their marks.

Rory O'Loughlin is the new Gary Ringrose!
Jack Conan named Man of the Match #LEIvNGD— #RugbyLeinster (@RugbyLeinster_) December 3, 2016
Kinda feel like Isa should be letting Joey Carbery take kicks in games like this, get him some valuable experience?
Good result but Leinster were poor in the second half. Too many wasted attackings - need a bit more composure to match the skills. #LEIvNGD— Niall Kitson (@niallkitson) December 3, 2016
Once the bonus try was secured it was all about running down the clock, getting some game time for the newbies and not picking up any injuries. Job done on all fronts. The line out was awful though and didn't get any better when Strauss came on but at end of the day any time you pick up a BP win is a good day 😊
@HarpinOnRugby a bit of the good the bad & the ugly tonight. But 5 points to the better. On to next week.— Kevin (@marywards) December 3, 2016
Like oft times before. Awesome 1st half, consolidate BP then slightly fall apart? Many changes, newbies still finding their way but regardless 80 mins is 80 mins.... Dragons played for 80! Munster / Ospreys don't capitulate hence their overall points / least tries against etc.
In sum; Always great to get a BP win but.....We've got to tidy up conceding tries and keep our foot on the forward motion for 80 mins 😎😎😎

We have 3 hookers who all have problems at lineout. It needs to be fixed. It's needs to be simplified and quick. There's no need to be clever just get up quick and early hit the man and stop messing about.
FT: Leinster 28 Dragons 15. Don’t be deceived by the final scoreline - it flatters the Dragons! https://t.co/xO6Exe9L5c— WalesOnline Rugby (@WalesRugby) December 3, 2016
I hate saying it too many times in a row but I'm so impressed with Leinster this season. When it goes wrong I'm the biggest whinger of them all but there has been so many times this season when I've been expecting it to go wrong and it just hasn't tonight was one of those occasions.
I thought Conan was excellent and was very impressed with Luke McGrath he looked like he made his neapressos with red bull Instead of water tonight !!

The 3rd team needs a lot more work.

Lineout just malfunctioned badly and we stopped playing once we had the BP. That said we outplayed Dragons in the first half and there was no way back for them. Great to see Conan back on track, hopefully he can get a run of time without injury.
Six day turnaround to Northampton trip meant the job was to lock up BP and bring win home. Wasn't all pretty but the job was done. #COYBIB— Harpin' On Rugby (@HarpinOnRugby) December 3, 2016
