Nigel Owens is a legend!!

Aoibhin Kenny

I enjoyed when Byrne and Byrne combined to set up that try for Byrne.

Andy Harrison

Leinster's academy 💪

Micheal Mac An TSagart

Savage work from the pack, Leavy is a beast. First 20/25 in the second half were a pure joy to watch. Scarlets handling was desperate at times though.....

David Lawlor

Lucky to be leading at half time but kicked on well in the second half. If McGrath could be more consistent with his kicking he will bypass Marmion for the Irish shirt. He showed Danny Care how to deal with a team not committing to a ruck with a good break

Bert McLoughlin

The Byrnes were on fire 😊. Masive statement of intent sent out tonight to the rest of the Pro12. Leinster are destroying teams at moment and are getting better week on week. Allez Les Bleus !!!

Paul Smith

Bit of slackness first half, but lean mean Leinster machine second half

Wayne O'Brien

That was a mightily impressive 2nd half. At times a little to much box-kicking and space out wide when in D but a VERY impressive nights work. Well done LC and all involved 😎😎😎

Joe Sheppard

Please use 'Scarleh for yer ma' as the headline for the review piece. That or 'Byrne baby Byrne' 🤣

Cian Ó Muilleoir

Strong Leinster in the second half, really punished what looked from the north stand like some god awful handling from scarlets. Seeing a team score 20/20 on the table with so many presumptive starters missing is very pleasant. Strength in depth, combined with a cracking attitude and commitment makes it very easy to watch

Conor Cronin

Scrappy first half but the boys kicked on the second half. We have to be pleased with a BP win and conceding no tries. The young guns done good. The ball boy MOTM 😄

Jackie Mc Causland

I had a bit of a whinge last season about rotation and not playing a settled team but I have to say those players have seriously come through. Very glad to have been wrong.

Chris Mcdonnell

Allez Les Byrnes! Just in case Leo is reading this, yes I am available. And so is my 8 year old son. #ByrneBabyByrne

Andrew Byrne

Defence was strong against a Scarlets side that ran in three tries in Thomond park last week. Had our fair share of good luck to help, but still. As for the attack, average in the first half, but huge improvement in the second.

Dónal Foley

Rosser Byrne sure can nail a cross-field kick and Carbery is fullback, not an out half.

Marconi Giampaolo

Many thanks to all who offered opinions.

Look out Monday for our match writeup JLP
