Great second half, Dan Leavy is immense, was surprised he wasn't started. Hopefully VdF injury isn't serious

Peter McGuirk

Good thing that first half performance came against a poor Edinburgh team. Second half showed it was a blip and no harm done, if injuries turn out to be minor.
5 points banked, move on.

Dónal Foley

A good second half with a bonus pt win. The young guys that have come through are starting to bear the fruit of the good work in the Leinster academy. Keep it coming.

Gerald Williamson

Never been more proud of the boys in blue than I am tonight. Outstanding result from such a patched up team. Here hoping VDF's injury is not too serious.

Paul Smith

A Hooker at 6 for 20 mins, a lock at 6 for 50 mins, a 15 who spent 60 mins at either 12 or 13, a scrum half on the wing for 25, a 10 at full back for 35 and we finished the game with 14 men. Still got a bonus point and it was game over after 55 mins. Bizarre game, shocking first half, Leavy is a beast. On to Newport Gwent Cabbage Patch

Colm O'Donoghue

This is a group of players Girven Dempsey has had a big part in developing. They defended like demons in the first half and showed ruthless scoring in the second half, not once letting their concentration slide two very good habits to have. Well done and loved it

Andrew Potts

Great defense and determination. A team who worked hard for each other and tried to not let injury interfere with the systems they've worked on. Genuine professionalism from a mostly young group, Leinster are on the up and should be proud of how they're developing players to be part of a team

On a side note injury tonight may save Joe a headache

Conor Cronin

Excellent result, but looks like it was at a pretty high cost :(

Denise O'Brien

Great second half and a bonus point win💙💯hoping Josh VDFs injury isn't to serious💙🙈

Megan Murray

Great defence in the first half. Bent was fantastic when he can on. Leavy is the real deal and Adam Byrne looks the part. Great days ahead for Leinster.

Chris McDonnell

Ridiculous string of injuries, players (very young ones) playing out of position, not many old heads out there = BP Win and emasculation of Edinburgh. Our defence in the first half was epic and the best stat the low penalty count. Very surreal game but what strength in depth we have. We used to quail at 6N time, now it's a period of abundance. The future is bright and the future is most certainly blue. Credit to the coaching staff at the Academy and beyond. Credit also to Leo and Stuart for bring them on. #COYBIB

Richard Mifsud

Thought our defence in the second quarter was immense. Good structure and all the boys mucking in for each other. Going in at half time 8-3 and not 8-10 laid the platform for the filleting of Dún Édin in the second half!!!!

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
