Good performance, will be great to have all the internationals back next week. I'd be worried if I were a Northampton fan...

Cian Ormond

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 😈

Colin Campbell

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

Wayne O'Brien

Rory O'Loughlin is the new Gary Ringrose!

Conor Young

Kinda feel like Isa should be letting Joey Carbery take kicks in games like this, get him some valuable experience?

Conor Murphy

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 😊

Paul Smith

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 😎😎😎

Joe Sheppard

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.

Chris McDonnell

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 !!

Shane O' Brien

The 3rd team needs a lot more work.

Damien Doherty

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.

Andrew Byrne

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.
